International Jewellery London has revealed the winners of this year’s Editor’s Choice awards, which recognise jewellery designers and suppliers who exhibit the most creative and cutting edge jewellery at IJL.
Chosen for their creative and innovative designs as well as commercial aptitude, the winning line-up includes David Miracca, John Moore Jewellery, Kickstarter Vicky Lew, Samsares Jewelry from Switzerland and Tezer Design from Germany.
The judges, Claire Adler, luxury communications consultant and Financial Times contributor, and Event Director Sam Willoughby, selected the winners from a range of categories, which included the new category ‘German Style’ – in recognition of the quality and creativity of German craftsmanship, as part of the Market Focus for 2016.
Event director, Sam Willoughby, comments: “Editor’s Choice always highlights the very best design and craftsmanship on show at IJL and this year is no exception. These superb pieces, many created using ground breaking techniques, reflect the diversity of brands and designers at this year’s show. All the winners are to be congratulated and we look forward to seeing them at IJL in September.”
Claire Adler was equally impressed by the winning five, explaining: “Judging IJL Editor’s Choice 2016 has been challenging and exciting. The well-deserved winners have created outstanding pieces of jewellery. IJL Editor’s Choice is a UK based international talent spotting competition and I’m pleased to say the standards remain high.
