The winners were:
Fashion Jewellery of the Year Award – Gellner
Fine Jewellery of the Year Award – Nanis

Designer of the Year Award – Goldschmiede Dreier
Watch Design of the Year Award – Junghans

Fine jewellery brand Nanis impressed the judges with its striking interchangeable jewels, while Tag Heure left everyone spellbound with its Connected Modular.
Klaus Dittrich, chairman and chief executive officer of Messe München, was pleased with the course of the competition. He shares: “We are particularly glad about the great number of international submissions. These are far more countries than in the previous year, which proves that we have touched a nerve by the awards.
“Our jury was fervently impressed by the pieces submitted, even though I heard the decisions weren’t easily made this year.”
