Gem specialist calling for entries on theme of colour combinations.

Tivon has launched the second edition of its annual jewellery design competition, calling for entries working to a theme of colour combinations using gemstones and precious metals.

The gemstone jewellery brand launched its first design competition in 2013, with two designers taking first prize for their intricate gemstone creations – Mara Machado from Brazil and Abigail Buckingham from Lincolnshire.


This year, it is asking both amateur and professional designers to submit ideas for fine jewellery designs via its Facebook page. The designers should base their creations on the theme of colour and colour combinations, making use of various coloured gemstones and/or diamonds in combinations with various colours of gold.

The competition offers the winner a chance to have their design produced, credited to them and exhibited at several international jewellery fairs, while a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the pieces will be donated to a charity of the designer’s choice.

Tivon is asking for all designers to submit their ideas (whether sketches or CAD drawings), through a Facebook private message to the company by September 30 2014.

The company will announce the top three designs at a later date, allowing its Facebook followers a chance to vote on which design they feel is worthy of the prize.

Based on their vote as well as the Tivon management vote, the company will announce the winner in the early autumn.
