Diamond Guild Awards finalists revealed

The finalists have been announced for this year’s Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Awards; a collection of pieces organisers believe represents an international standard in diamond jewellery design.

Established in 2005 and sponsored by Diamond Guild Australia (DGA), the biennial competition is open to all designers and jewellers working within an Australian retail jewellery business. 

All entries must feature natural diamonds and are judged according to criteria across seven categories: solitaire; fancy shape; fancy colour; daily diamonds; gents; red carpet; and emerging talent. There will also be a People’s Choice Award-winner and, for the first time in the competition’s history, an overall Supreme Award-winner.

A panel of five judges working in jewellery and design disciplines was tasked with selecting this year’s finalists and winning pieces. Judges included fashion designer Carla Zampatti; CEO of Good Design Australia and chair of the Australian International Design Awards, Dr Brandon Gien; jewellery photographer David Perryman; editor for Qantas in-flight magazine The Australian Way, Susan Skelly; and jewellery designer John Calleija. 

Winners will be announced on 1 December. For the complete showcase of finalists, click here.
