The International Jewellery Design Excellence Award, a prestigious event open only to the top prize winners of international jewellery design competitions, will officially debut at the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show in March.
According to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the Award, which has attracted 170 entries from 27 countries and regions, will provide “an opportunity for international jewellery designers to exchange experiences and compete for the highest honour”.
HKTDC assistant executive director Raymond Yip said the award “pays tribute to the cream of the crop”.
“Invitations to compete were issued worldwide to winners of other jewellery design competitions,” he said.
“The result is an elite group of entrants with a proven track record in creativity and design to compete for the highest honour. The ultimate winner will be named ‘Champion of Champions’ at a gala dinner during the Show.”
