This award, now in its eighth year, aims to recognise and reward outstanding design in platinum and to enhance design standards of all contemporary jewellery.
It is divided into two categories:


Emerging Designers recognises designers with less than five years commercial experience
Established Designers gives its attention to those who have been in the business for more than five years
Over 100 entries in the form of drawings were considered across the categories and the winners chosen by a panel of distinguished judges in April. These drawings have now been realised as finished pieces of jewellery and can be seen for the first time on the Johnson Matthey stand at IJL.
