(PRESS RELEASE) In Vicenza the Oscars are those of Jewel and on January 19th, at the Palladio Theatre of the Vicenza Fair, the awards ceremony of the 9 winners of the most prestigious international award in the sector was carried out as every year during the January edition of VICENZAORO.

The Andrea Palladio International Jewellery Awards are an international award dedicated to the excellence of contemporary jewellery in the fields of design, production, retail, communication, CSR and career. It is an event that represents a point of reference for premium jewellery and an instrument aimed at creating synergies and a system among the protagonists of the world of goldsmith and international jewellery.

Massimiliano Bonoli, Luz Camino, Elsa Peretti, Caterina Occhio and the brands Palmiero, Chanel, Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels obtained the highest recognition from the prestigious international jury presided over by Franco Cologni, founder of the Cologni-Mestieri D’Arte Foundation and winner of the career award in the last edition.

Composed by Silvana Annicchiarico, Director of the Triennale Design Museum, Alba Cappellieri, Design Professor of the Milan Polytechnic Jewel, and Clare Phillips, Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the jury had the difficult task of selecting the nine winners.

These are the 9 categories awarded: the best Italian jewellery designer, the best international jewellery designer, the best Italian jewellery collection, the best international jewellery collection, the best single-brand jewellery store, the best communication campaign, the company with the most qualified ethical responsibility project , social and environmental, to the best campaign in the field of new communication and last but not least, to the personality that in his or her career has contributed most to innovate the world of jewellery, opening new horizons and leaving a mark significant in the sector.

These are the reasons behind the victories:
  • Best Italian Jewellery Designer
    Massimiliano Bonoli – The jewels of Massimiliano Bonoli are distinguished by their vocation for experimentation and innovation both in the materials with which they are made, and in the technologies and in the disciplinary intersections.

  • Best International Jewellery Designer
    Luz Camino – The jewels of Luz Camino represent the meeting between the harmony of natural forms and contemporary elegance. Nature and beauty are interpreted at the highest levels.
  • The Best Italian Jewellery Collection

  • The Best International Jewellery Collection
    Chanel – The Flying Cloud collection has the merit of translating into precious material the memories of the young Coco Chanel. Sapphires, diamonds and precious metals refer to his trips on the Côte d’Azur, to sailors’ uniforms, to cruises on the Flying Cloud, the yacht that belonged to Hugh Grosvenor from which the collection takes its name.
  • The Best Jewellery Communication Campaign

  • Lifetime Achievement Award
    Elsa Peretti – the career award goes to a visionary designer, who anticipated not only formal but also social changes and translated them into jewels that defined new feminine, courageous, elegant and independent identities.
  • Jewellery Corporate Social Responsibility
    SeeMe – An award to the tenacity of Caterina Occhio for her tireless support to women victims of aggression in Tunisia and Turkey through a simple but powerful symbol: the heart, to combat every form of violence and restore dignity, hope and future to women.
  • The Best Communication New Media
    VC&A – Van Cleef & Arpels’ creativity is emphasized in L’Arche de Noé racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels – Multisensory Jewellery experience by Robert Wilson – Paris, Hong Kong, New York. A sensory experience combining the best goldsmith tradition with the new languages of contemporary life.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
