The much-awaited Jury Meet for the 7th edition of JJS – IJ Jewellers’ Choice Design Awards concluded here at Sofitel in Mumbai on 25th November 2017. Now, we are almost a month away from announcing the final winners in a gala ceremony to be held in Jaipur in December 2017.

The 7-member jury panel evaluated 120 short-listed designs from across India. The 22 finalists will be announced in a grand award ceremony slated to be held in Jaipur on 23rd December 2017.

The Jury Meet began with a welcome speech by Arpit Kala, Associate Publisher of the Indian Jeweller magazine, who spoke about the journey of IJ Awards over the last six years.

Talking about IJ Awards, Arpit Kala said, “This year, there has been an overwhelming response for IJ Awards as we received over 600 designs from across India.
