2018 Diamond Guild Australia Awards Finalists Announced
Last week PMC had the honour of co-ordinating an intimate judging event for the Diamond Guild Australia 2018 Jewellery Awards at the Primus Hotel in Sydney.
Established in 2005, the Diamond Guild Awards is the most prestigious jewellery design competition in Australia, inviting the nation’s best and brightest jewellers and designers to compete in six categories of jewellery design.
The judging event was an opulent affair, held in the luxurious presidential suite decorated with elegant floral displays from Fleur Events.
The judging panel featured luxury interior designer Greg Natale, rising Australian actress April Rose Pengilly and General Manager of Good Design Australia, Rachael Wye. Renowned Australian jewellery designer John Callejia of Callejia Jewellers acted as technical advisor to the panel.
Following a carefully considered judging process, eighteen finalists for the Awards were named. The finalists are dispersed across six distinct categories; Solitaire, Fancy Colour, Red Carpet, Diamonds for Men, Diamonds for Everyday and Emerging Talent. The 18 pieces are representative of the diversity of Australian jewellery design, with pieces ranging from classic brilliant cut diamond rings to extravagant diamond encrusted earrings.
On the 16th of October 2018, finalists and their guests will be invited to the Diamond Guild Australia Gala Event in Melbourne where the winner of each category will be announced.
PMC will be driving the management and publicity of this high profile and glamorous event where the most outstanding piece from all six categories will be named as the Supreme Winner and the selected pieces will be showcased as the pinnacle of Australian jewellery design excellence.
