2018 Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Awards

On behalf of the members of Diamond Guild Australia we would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in the 2018 Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Awards.

Diamond Guild Australia is a not-for-profit association of industry-leading jewellers and diamond professionals. Established in 2005 the Guild and its members endeavor to set the benchmark for excellence in the ethical and professional sale of diamonds within Australia.

Our keystone event is the Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Awards. This biennial open design competition invites jewellers and designers working within a retail environment from around Australia to compete in six categories of jewellery design. Each category is defined by specific design criteria and a strict quality standard. From these six winning designs a Supreme Award winner will be chosen as the pinnacle of Australian jewellery design and craftsmanship.

Now proudly in its 13th year, the Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Awards aim to promote and encourage excellence, innovation and inspiration within the Australian Jewellery trade, for the benefit of the entire industry as well as the Australian jewellery consumer.

The 2018 Awards will receive extensive media coverage targeted to the diamond buying public via an extensive promotional program. The finalists and winners will be showcased in digital and print editorial over a period of four months. Additional social and event coverage features in mainstream and trade media will raise the profile and awareness of the successful participants.

Finalists and their guests will be invited to a gala evening event to be held in Melbourne in October to celebrate their success and to announce the winners. At this time the finalist pieces will be showcased for the benefit of the guests attending.
