Technology body gives award to PureJewels executive

LONDON, December 2009 – The British Institute of Technology and E-Commerce has granted an award to PureJewels’ brand manager Jayant Raniga for his contribution to business in Newham in east London.

“Whilst there are many other strong candidates, the institute recognises your contribution as a businessman and entrepreneur, as a member of the Green Street Jewellers’ Association (GSJA), and your contributions to supporting students within Newham,” said Kelvin Jones, head of international relations at the body.

Jayant received his award at a dinner at the Institute in Newham attended by over 100 people on December 15.

“It was a great honour for us to have been recognised for our contribution to local business,” he said.

The Green Street Jewellers’ Association groups jewellers in Green Street, Newham, who offer a mix of Eastern and Western styles.

The branding effort of the Green Street jewellers is focused on developing business opportunities before the 2012 Olympics, which will take place around east London.

Green Street jewellers are currently staging a draw with a £3,000 cash prize for the winner.

It is the first time that a prize draw has been offered by a group of retail jewellers in Britain.

Shoppers will receive a ticket for every £250 spent in participating Green Street shops. Each ticket will be entered in the draw. The draw runs until December 31.
