With the theme of ‘Enchanted Cosmos’, GJEPC’s Artisan Awards 2019 celebrated the best design talent in the Indian gems and jewellery industry.

It was a night to remember as the stars of designer jewellery came together at the Royal Opera House in south Mumbai recently. Following the theme of ‘Enchanted Cosmos’, The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) held the Artisan Jewellery Design Awards 2019 powered by GIA (Gemological Institute of America)  and co-partnered by the DPA (Diamond Producers Association).

The Artisan Awards celebrate the highest levels of art, creativity and innovation by honouring the best talent in jewellery design. It also offers an ideal platform for designers from within and outside the industry to showcase their talent by helping them collaborate with some India’s best manufacturers. Talented minds from diverse walks of life come together to discuss, debate and deliberate on the creativity of young designers.

Pramod Kumar Agrawal, chairman, GJEPC, said, “The Indian gem and jewellery industry has a history of more than 5, 000 years. We always had the advantage of skilled artisans and karigars when catering to global markets.

“Today, total gem and jewellery exports accounts for $42 billion annually. The industry contributes around seven per cent to India’s GDP and employs more than five million people. It’s time that the world is made aware of India’s jewellery design potential and portray India as a ‘design destination’ for jewellery. The Artisan Awards is an initiative and a sincere effort to encourage the true design talent in the industry and showcase India’s Design extravagance to the world.”
