A jewellery and silversmithing exhibition celebrating the winning designs from this year’s Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards will open to the public on March 1.

Following the prestigious awards night – dubbed the ‘Jewellery Oscars’ – at Goldsmiths’ Hall on February 29, the jewellery industry and members of the public are invited to see this year’s winning 3D and 2D work at a dedicated four-day showcase.

The public exhibition will feature striking British design and craftsmanship across the award’s 25 categories, including its major and special awards, precious jewellery, fashion jewellery, silversmiths, modellers, diamond mounters, engravers and work by several apprentices.


The 2016 winning entries will be displayed in the Exhibition Room and Foyer of Goldsmiths’ Hall, celebrating the standard, variety and ethos of work being made in the British jewellery and silversmithing industries, allied crafts and education.

The winners of this year’s awards will be revealed at an invite-only ceremony on February 29 in the historical surrounds of the Livery Hall at Goldsmiths’ Hall. Jewellery expert Joanna Hardy, famed for her work with leading auction houses, will host this year’s awards.

The Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards exhibition will be open from March 1-4 from 10am – 5pm each day with a late evening viewing on Wednesday March 2 until 8pm.
