Six "Dream" Designs of Global Excellence

Millennial Light Weight Jewelry
Cocktail Jewelry
Bridal Wear Jewelry
Honorary Mention

The Freedom to Dream

Dreams are stories and images that our mind creates. They can be entertaining, fun, romantic, disturbing, frightening, and sometimes bizarre. Dreams are also a representation of our aspirations, motivations, goals, desires and hopes. Dreams give us the freedom to imagine beyond.

We want you to interpret the word “Dreams” as you wish and convert it into an element of your design. You need to describe your concept and its interpretation in your design as part of your entry.
