Gemfields, GUILD present the 2nd ‘Aurora Awards International Gem and Jewelry Competition’

On 26 September 2023, the second ‘Aurora Awards International Gem and Jewelry Competition’ hosted its gala ceremony at the IBC International Business Centre in Shenzhen, China.

The event was organised by GUILD Institute of Gemology, the first and only international gemmological institute in China, and Gemfields, a world-leading responsible gemstone miner. It featured participants from around the world, who came together to celebrate the future of innovation in the gem and jewellery sector.

The competition was divided into five major categories: loose coloured gemstones, pearls, jewellery, cutting and polishing, and designer awards. The winners were announced at a glittering ceremony, attended by an in-person audience of 315 and a further 57,000 joining via livestream.

With consumer demand for coloured gemstones – notably rubies and emeralds – continuing to rise in China, Sean Gilbertson’s visit represented an opportunity for an exchange of ideas and trend-sharing in this growing market. He said: “This has been an eye-opening trip to Shenzhen.

I am awed by the scale of the gem and jewellery sector in the Shubei area, having seen the thousands of points of sale - and the many experienced hands running them - with my own eyes. Thanks to GUILD’s kind introductions, I see tremendous opportunity for ruby engagement rings in particular, and Gemfields has set the wheels in motion to further support this segment.”
