50th German Award for Jewellery and Precious Stones Idar-Oberstein 2019
On the occasion of our 50th jubilee competition this year, both the gemstone design and the design of a jewellery piece made of precious metal and precious stones were allowed. Thus, unmounted gemstones, the gemstone in the jewellery (here, only precious metals may be used), the gemstone object and the gemstone sculpture were allowed. The use of synthetic stones was not admitted. Pearls were only allowed in combination with gemstones.
