Missoma, Monica Vinader win Queen's Awards
UK-based jewellery brands Monica Vinader and Missoma have each won a Queen’s Award, the former for Enterprise in Sustainable Development and the latter for International Trade for Outstanding Short-Term Growth.
The Monica Vinader award follows the brand’s sustainability target to accelerate change across the jewellery industry by delivering goals aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development agenda.
The carbon-neutral brand uses 100% recycled gold vermeil and sterling silver, along with recyclable packaging and reusable pouches. In April, it also launched a biodiversity project to preserve the British Countryside in Norfolk, home of the brand’s HQ.
In a statement on Instagram, the brand said: “We’re proud to announce that we’ve won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s most prestigious business award, in the Sustainable Development category. Since the brand was founded, we’ve been committed to accelerating change across the jewellery industry by taking action and constantly reevaluating how we can do more for the planet. We are thrilled to share this win with our team and partners.”
Meanwhile, Missoma’s award win is in recognition for overseas sales covering the last three years.
Founded by Marisa Hordern, Missoma is a “pioneer of ‘demi-fine’ jewellery… having designed all its unique and iconic handcrafted collections in-house” at its London, Notting Hill, studio since 2008.
The annual Queen’s Award programme celebrates outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.
Winning businesses can display the Queen’s Award flag and use the emblem on their marketing materials for five years. Winners are also given a ‘Grant of Appointment’ and a commemorative crystal trophy.
