IGI ExpressionsTM Winners 2022

Nine "Renewal" Designs of Global Excellence

Lightweight Jewelry
Statement Piece


Renewal is a synonym for Regeneration & Rejuvenation. It is the change which defines progress and growth in the cyclical rhythm of nature and life. Many times, obliteration is needed for renewal; it is the contrast of darkness which makes light so eternally beautiful.

We want you to interpret the word “Renewal” as you wish and convert it into an element of your design. We will ask you to describe your concept and its interpretation in your design as part of your entry (250 words or less).

Submit Renewal

Participation Categories

Lightweight Jewelry

A ring, necklace, bracelet or earring: Design a lightweight piece, perfect for daily wear in any situation from the workplace and corporate meetings to social events.

Statement Piece

A ring, necklace, bracelet or earring: Design a distinctive statement piece that draws attention to itself through bold use of size, shape, color and complexity.


Step away from the common! Come up with a unique auxiliary jewelry design - perhaps a brooch, hairpin, cufflink, armlet, chains - or anything else you can dream of.
