Platinum Guild International (PGI) announced the three winners of their new design contest, launched at this year’s Baselworld watch and jewellery exhibition.

Italian manufacturer, Picchiotti, was presented with the Platinum Design Award for platinum bridal jewellery for their solitaire engagement ring with a combination of brown, yellow and white diamonds from the Unique Bridal Collection. A platinum wedding or engagement ring is the ultimate symbol of eternal love uniting two people: rare, hard-wearing and precious just like the metal itself.

Spider’s webs crafted into a platinum necklace, a bracelet and earrings won Kuwayama Japan a Platinum Design Award for the ‘platinum jewellery inspired by Nature’ category. Around the world this year, jewellery designers have drawn inspiration from the natural world. The versatility of platinum allows jewellery to take on the shape of drops, stars, planets, animals and floral designs with an explosion of shapes, lights and lines that are powerful and evocative.

The final category award, ‘platinum jewellery for men’ was presented to German manufacturer, Hans D. Krieger, for their sword-shaped platinum pendant with white and fancies diamonds, on platinum chain.

From Fabergé to Cartier, the world’s greatest jewellery designers have always preferred working with pure platinum; it is uniquely ductile and durable and lends itself to magnificent and unique ideas.
