Andrew Geoghegan’s Cannelé collection has been awarded the coveted ‘Highly Commended’ accolade in the Bridal Collection category of Professional Jeweller’s ‘Collections of the Year’ 2014 awards.
The highly commended title sees Andrew’s Cannelé range recognised as one of the top five bridal collections of 2014.
Speaking about the Cannelé collection, Professional Jeweller had this to say:
“With its delicate setting and shank reminiscent of its French namesake, the Andrew Geoghegan Cannelé collection has won praise across the industry since its launch. It heralds AG’s brand move into the realms of ‘pretty’ engagement rings and fine jewellery – showcasing a lighter and more delicate route than the brand’s established offering.
The word Cannelé reflects the shape of the main setting in the collection of engagement rings, stud earrings and pendants. Each of the delicate flutings are cut and polished under a microscope, with the collection designed to be highly personalised by each customer.
Geoghegan has commented that the Cannelé is the perfect engagement ring, stating that the engagement ring has been the brand’s fastest-selling piece since its launch”.
AG jewellery has received notable acclaim over the last 12 months, with Andrew crowned the British Jewellers’ Association ‘Designer of the Year’ in December 2013. At the Retail Jeweller ‘UK Watch & Jewellery awards’, Andrew was again thrown into the spotlight, shortlisted for ‘Designer of the Year’ and receiving further praise for his Cannelé collection which went on to become a finalist in the same awards.
Of his success Andrew noted:
“For me, it’s all about quality, quality, quality. I’ve sourced some of the very best goldsmiths and setters in the world and together we’re creating incredible pieces, the likes of which have never been seen before. This year was about creating cohesive suites of jewellery, adding more gents weds, earrings and pendants – which is what AG customers are asking for. 2015 is going to be huge for us with a complete rebrand and reinvigorated marketing plan”.
