The Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation Award for Excellence in Jewelry Design was announced virtually during GIA’s Knowledge Rocks Week: Spring Into Color. Students and alumni gathered virtually for the celebration and announcement of the winner, Belle Sin Ting Wong, who earned her Jewelry Design certificate at the GIA Hong Kong school. Watch the full interview with this year’s winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8azIxbGMK8.

More than 100 students competed to be finalists for the 2020 Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation Award for Excellence in Jewelry Design. The students’ designs were presented in their original, hand-rendered format, accompanied by statements identifying the materials used and the inspiration for each piece. The designs of nine finalists from seven GIA campuses were evaluated by peers, faculty and ultimately by a panel of distinguished judges – including Shelly Sargent, curator of the Somewhere in the Rainbow collection; Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief of JCK Magazine; Alishan Halebian, owner and jewellery designer of Alishan; Alan Revere, award-winning jewellery designer, author and educator; and Remy Rotenier, owner and jewellery designer of Remy Rotenier.

“It is incredible that so many students managed to complete their Jewelry Design studies in 2020, despite the challenges of the global pandemic. Many of the beautiful, original designs that students created this year were inspired by themes of connection and community,” said Laurie Bailyn, senior manager of jewellery manufacturing arts, research & development.

Belle Sin Ting Wong’s winning design was a brooch inspired by the Siamese fighting fish. “I wanted to raise attention to environmental awareness with this piece… If we continue our toxic living habits and don’t use sustainable products, we might be very close to losing these beautiful creatures and quicken the pace of global warming,” she said.

The award was created with the Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation in 2018 to recognise outstanding talent in design among GIA students. The 2021 Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation Award for Excellence in Jewelry Design competition is underway and open to students in GIA’s Jewelry Design courses who meet the eligibility requirements.
