Covering trends and new designers isn’t something I get to do a lot of here. It is not really my beat, so to speak.
But every once in a while, I run across some designers who really strike me, both personally and professionally, and I like to take the time to discuss why I like them, and why I think they’re somebody to whom retailers should pay attention.
The winners of the Editor’s Choice design competition at the International Jewellery London trade show were announced earlier this month.
The competition recognizes designers and suppliers who exhibit “the most creative and cutting-edge jewelry at IJL,” with six winners chosen and an additional two being honored as “highly commended.”
The winners in each category, and their designs, are below.
