The biannual jewelry competition Xifu International Gold Wedding Jewellery Design Competition is about to open for entries for 2017.
This competition aims at encouraging designers to express and share unique wedding traditions and customs from around the world.
It invites jewelry design talents to design unique gold wedding jewelry sets, incorporating the traditional Chinese wedding custom of extending well wishes to newlywed couples through symbolic jewelry gifts.
The theme of the Xifu International Gold Wedding Jewellery Design Competition 2017 is "Oneness", which focuses on crossing geographic and cultural boundaries to create a newer and greater significance for gold wedding jewelry.
Some possible interpretations of Oneness:
• Marriage as one - Two becomes one and a new family is formed.
• World as one - Cultures, backgrounds, preferences and personalities from different parts of the world unite and merge together.
• Design as one - Everyone speaks the universal language of design – imagination, creativity and innovation.
• Jewellery as one - Jewellery meets multifunctionality and interchangeability where two separate jewellery pieces complement each other.
All jewellery designers are asked to interpret "Oneness" through an innovative approach to designing a set of at least two gold jewellery pieces. You are free to describe the world you come from; express your ideas and views on marriage; and showcase your imagination, craftsmanship and creative flair. Let your design embody oneness.
There are two categories in which you can participate:
• Plain Gold
• Gem-set Gold Jewellery
All submitted designs must be 18-karat gold or above and in a set of two or more pieces.
Jewellery design must be an original creation that has not been used for commercial purposes, exhibited publicly or submitted to any other competition.
Entries can be submitted via mail or online from 1 March through 31 May 2017.
There is no entry fee for this competition!
