Entries are now open for the inaugural Fairtrade Gold Design Awards. This is an exciting new award created by ethical jeweller Ingle & Rhode and supported by the Fairtrade Foundation which aims to raise awareness of Fairtrade gold amongst new designers whilst also helping to identify and promote up-and-coming talent.
If you are a student jewellery designer currently studying a full-time course related to jewellery, or undertaking an apprenticeship in the jewellery industry, or have been working in the jewellery industry for three years or less register on Ingle & Rhode’s website by 12 February to take part. You will need to submit a design of a Fairtrade gold wedding ring, engagement ring or wedding band and engagement ring set by 12 March. The winners will be announced in April 2017. Prizes include £500, work experience and the chance to have winning designs made in Fairtrade gold - and of course, we will apply the Fairtrade hallmark to them.
