Johnson Matthey Launches Platinum Design Competition

Johnson Matthey NY, a supplier of semi-fabricated platinum
jewelry, is inviting entries to a new design competition called The Johnson

The company says the competition is for American-based
emerging jewelry designers “who are looking to begin building their portfolio

of platinum jewelry in North America.”
