Thai design contest unveils winners

October 2020

The 14th World Jewelry Design Award 2020 has recently announced recipients of the four prizes.

In a bid to boost creativity and imagination, the Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand (Public Organization) or GIT has organised the design contest for global design talents. Themed Beyond Jewelry: Artistic Elegance of Gems, designers were encouraged to unleash their creativity with no limitation in designing and the use of materials.

According to GIT, there were over 350 entries from around the globe, with over a half from outside of Thailand.

Thai designer Kitisak Maicharoen claimed the winner of the contest with his ‘Scan Me’ jewellery collection consisting of a pair of earrings, a necklace and a ring. The QR code-inspired collection is functional in that the necklace can transform into a brooch, while the ring and the earrings can be opened to store QR codes or images. The QR code can be customised on the wearer’s request. He has received a cash prize of US$4,000 and a honoured trophy from Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Krom Phra.

The 1st runner-up went to Lithuanian designer Gerda Liudvinaviciute. Her winning collection, ‘Brut_List (Eastern European)’, incorporates earrings, a necklace and a ring made from concrete material and Swarovski crystals, with the inspiration from the architecture of residential buildings in Eastern Europe. She has got a cash prize of US$3,000 and an honoured trophy.

Another Thai designer Phapthip Kunlavut was named the 2nd runner-up with her ‘Smart Jewelry High Fashion’ consisting of a face mask, a headphone and a smart silver necklace. She has got a cash prize of US$1,500 and an honoured trophy.

The consolation prize was claimed by Melika Aghili from Iran. Her ‘Ant and Amber’ collection comes with a necklace, a ring and earrings set in brass with amber-like resin. A work of dedication and diligence. She was awarded a cash prize of US$1,000 and an honoured trophy.

“The four winning designs are unique in their own way. The designers have creativity far beyond the norm and used their experiences in designing the jewellery. The winner’s collection is truly suitable for today’s lifestyle,” said chairman of GIT board of executive directors Nuntawan Sakuntanaga. (Photo courtesy: GIT)
