The winners have been announced:
Chosen from 555 submissions representing 21 countries, the creative works represent interpretations of the word “dream” through an original piece or set of jewelry. The designs were selected from a shortlist of 80 finalists by a panel of renowned jewelry and fashion industry experts including Italy’s Paolo De Luca, India’s Pallavi Foley, David Gotlib from Belgium, Ashraf Motiwala from India, England’s Katerina Perez and Veronique Tournet from France.
Dreams become reality.
The six winning designs will be fabricated and featured at the Premium D Show in Mumbai, India, November 24-25, where leading diamond and jewelry manufacturers showcase their designs. The designs will receive further exposure in IGI’s pan-Indian ORIGIN Magazine, on the IGI GemBlog and across the institute’s various worldwide social channels. The winning participants will each receive a competition Champion Certificate, Champion Award, and small cash honorarium.
Talent seen and rewarded.
We are delighted by the outpouring of creativity from so many participants this year. We are especially thankful to our honored jurists for their time, support and advocacy of new jewelry design. This online platform, where literally anyone in the world may have their talent seen and rewarded by such an esteemed panel, is precisely what we envisioned when creating IGI Expressions™.
