To commemorate the 2012 Olympic Games the Guild of Jewellery Designers (GoJD) has launched a competition in collaboration with Durston Rolling Mills to design a ring in homage to the Olympic rings.

Entrants are being given a creative carte blanche and can use any size, style, medium that they wish.


The competition requires competitors to simply upload an image of their finished ring to either the GoJD Forum, GoJD Facebook page or the GoJD community page.

The winner will be decided by a combination of guild members and members of the public. The picture with the most number of ‘likes’ across all of the forums will be announced as the winner, receiving a Durston Rolling Mills’ disc cutting set as their prize, which retails for £195.

The competition closes on September 15 with the winning designer being notified the following day.
