Bering is headline sponsor of Buyers Power List at Jewellery & Watch London
LONDON, May 4, 2014 – Danish watch brand Bering have been revealed by Jewellery & Watch London as the headline sponsor of the inaugural Buyers Power List at the event in June, seeing it become the Bering Buyers Power List.
Now open for entries, the Bering Buyers Power List aims to recognise, celebrate and reward the individuals and companies that suppliers and peers in the jewellery and watch industry have nominated and voted for as making an outstanding difference and being highly influential in the jewellery and watch market.
Bering, famed for their minimalistic Danish-designed, quality, watches and jewellery for both men and women, will be using their headline sponsorship of the event to officially launch their Arctic Symphony range in the UK.
Designed to complement the brand’s range of watches, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, Arctic Symphony is a collection of unique rings, incorporating scratch-resistant HighTec-Ceramic, stainless steel, milanaise, Swarovski elements and zirconia, which can be changed and altered by adding and changing different elements, allowing customers to create their own personalised rings.
Arctic Symphony can also be bespoke made in precious metals with diamonds, available on a made-to-order basis.
As part of their sponsorship, Bering will be showcasing their Arctic Symphony collection and some of their watch ranges at Jewellery & Watch London, which takes place at London’s Saatchi Gallery on June 18-19.
Additionally, the brand is offering all of those who take the time to nominate others for the Bering Buyers Power List, the chance to win one of their watches as part of a prize draw.
Commenting on their sponsorship of the Bering Buyers Power List, Richard Hill, UK Managing Director at Bering, said: “Being main sponsor, for what is sure to become a key event in the Jewellery and Watch industry’s calendar, allows Bering to build on the success that our watches have seen in the UK over the last couple of years.
“This includes our ever-expanding list of over 400 retail partners, as well as being awarded the title of Retail Jeweller ‘Watch brand of the year’.
“As jewellery designers’ imaginations run wild and a stockist’s choice becomes greater by the day, it is fantastic to be able to celebrate those who are going above and beyond to get their collection right time and time again.
“Most importantly, Jewellery and Watch London provides us with a fantastic opportunity to showcase our sensational Arctic Symphony Rings – a unique collection, which incorporates a ‘twist and change’ ring that allows you to create an individual look like no other.”
Julie Driscoll, portfolio director for Jewellery & Watch London at i2i Events, added: “We are delighted to welcome Bering as our headline sponsors for our first-ever Buyers Power List.
“As current Watch Brand of the Year, Bering are at the top of their game when it comes to producing quality, beautiful watches and we are looking forward to helping them officially launch their Arctic Symphony range in the UK.”
