Babette Wasserman, the British jewellery designer known for her unique designs of semi-precious women’s jewellery and men’s accessories, proved her staying power and wide appeal, having won Designer of the Year 2015 at the National Association of Jewellers Awards, one of the UK industry’s most prestigious awards.
Babette Wasserman, who has been in the industry since 1997, is an indisputable trendsetter across both men’s accessories and women’s jewellery. She often pioneers ideas seasons before the rest of the industry catches up, focusing on architecture engineering and innovative mechanisms such as the reversible two-faced saucer cufflinks back in 1998, or the intertwining of fine jewellery techniques with fashion flair, turning jewellery into expressions of every day luxury.
This uncanny ability to start trends has earned Babette Wasserman a very loyal customer base and a strong international presence. The brand is now sold in over 200 stores, including some of the most exclusive department stores in London, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Istanbul and across 30 countries.
Babette Wasserman says: “I am hugely grateful to have won this Award and want to thank all those who have voted for us, in particular my dedicated team without whom this would not have been possible. For me, wining this award is another great moment in the story of my brand. I am proud and lucky that 17 years on from creating my brand, I am still loving designing season after season beautiful wearable jewels within an industry that I love. “
