Laura Bond Jewellery, a leading luxury jewellery brand in Edinburgh, is thrilled to announce its triumph at the 2024 Retail Jeweller UK Jewellery Awards. The brand’s Senior Marketing Executive, Karina Miller (24), has been honoured with the Rising Star 30 Under 30 award, while the Laura Bond Jewellery boutique has clinched a finalist position in the Store Design of the Year category.

Establishing its online presence in 2020, Laura Bond Jewellery swiftly emerged as a key player in the UK’s upscale piercing scene, capturing the attention of celebrities like Florence Pugh and Michelle Visage. Now, the brand’s exceptional standards and forward-thinking approach have garnered recognition at the esteemed UK Jewellery Awards.

Karina Miller, Senior Marketing Executive at Laura Bond Jewellery, has recently been lauded with a nomination for the Rising Star 30 Under 30 award. This accolade, aimed at spotlighting the career trajectories of young professionals in the watch and jewellery domain, celebrates individuals across diverse industry sectors who have significantly contributed to the success of their respective organizations.

Starting from her role as an E-Commerce Assistant, where she managed orders and customer inquiries, Karina’s proactive attitude and outstanding work ethic propelled her advancement within the team. Through her efforts in overseeing Laura Bond’s social media, Karina played a pivotal role in expanding their Instagram following from 90,000 to over 140,000. Moreover, her multifaceted marketing initiatives in 2023 significantly contributed to the independent business’s impressive 67% increase in sales.

Expressing her gratitude, Karina Miller said, “I am incredibly honoured to receive the Rising Star 30 Under 30 award. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Laura Bond team.

In addition to Karina’s accomplishments, Laura Bond Jewellery’s physical store has earned recognition as a finalist for the Store Design of the Year award.
