Theme of the competition
The theme of the Xifu International Gold Wedding Jewellery Design Competition 2017 is oneness, which focuses on crossing geographic and cultural boundaries to create a newer and greater significance for gold wedding jewellery. We ask jewellery designers from all over the world to interpret oneness through an innovative approach to designing a set of at least two gold jewellery pieces. Entrants are free to describe the world they come from; express their ideas and views on marriage; and demonstrate their imagination, craftsmanship and creative flair. Their design should embody the concept of oneness.
