Mrs.Duangkamol Jiambut, director of the Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand said this contest is different from last year as there is no limitation to the types of gemstones that can be used, allowing the artists and designers to fully release their creativity. They can also make use of new materials such as wood, plastic, resin, embroidery techniques and other innovations as well.

“Today, jewelry is more than just an accessory and should serve a functional purpose. We expect to see new and extraordinary designs that can be developed into products that can be sold. GIT, together with the partners, will produce jewelry from the designs that made it to the final round to exhibit at the 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair in September this year as well,” she added.

The winner will receive a cash prize of 4,000 USD with a commemorative plaque, the1st runner-up will receive a cash prize of 3,000 USD with a commemorative plaque, the 2nd runner-up will receive a cash prize of 1,500 USD with a commemorative plaque and 1 consolation prize of 1,000 USD with a commemorative plaque. The result of the first-round judging will be announced on 9th July 2020.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
