Muddy Stiletto 2019 Winners

 

With the British High Street rapidly changing, now is the time to be an independent business bringing exciting designs to the staid High Street. So what a time to celebrate being independent by winning for the second consecutive year the Muddy Stilettos award for Best Jewellers in Surrey.

Muddy Stilettos are a fantastic social media brand established in November 2012 by journalist Hero Brown. Four years on it can now be found in 21 counties with Surrey being looked after by Amber Evans. Each county celebrates local businesses by holding the annual Muddy Awards with competition categories ranging from the best of women’s fashion and beauty to farm shops and boutique stays, and our category of Best Jewellers.

 After winning in 2018 we were nominated for a second year. For an independent retailer this means the world both to the team and the business as a whole. The winners’ ceremony took place at Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking, Surrey. It was an opportunity to celebrate and network with all the businesses who won. Our company directors (Steve & Alix Parsons) and Guildford Store Manager (Stefanie O`Grady) attended and by the looks of the photos they had a great time! Collecting a certificate and badge (look out for these on our shop doors) a feeling of pride is felt within the Simon Pure team.

 At Simon Pure we have the charm of being a small business with big ambitions. Designing since 1986, the Simon Pure brand has evolved and become stronger, prouder and still on the British High Street.  As well as our Guildford showroom, we have our workshop and gallery which is based at Smithbook Kilns near Cranleigh. This is the spiritual home of Simon Pure – it is where inspiration and creativity begin, and where the ranges of stunning jewellery are hand crafted. Thank you to everyone who nominated, voted and has supported us over for over 33 years. Let’s see if we can make it to three years in 2020…
