NEW JEWELRY DESIGN CONTEST ANNOUNCED The World Gold Council is sponsoring the first-ever global jewelry design competition. The “Gold Virtuosi” contest will honor up to 30 winners, to be selected in London next April. Sketches must be submitted by Jan. 5 for preliminary judging in February. The 100 finalists will have until April 4 to submit finished pieces. Each piece must be in 18k or higher karatage gold, and no other metals may be used. Gems can be used only as accents; gold must predominate and be used to “dramatic effect.” Winning pieces will receive their first public showing at the Vicenza Fair in Italy next June before going on a world tour. Winning designers will be flown to Vicenza for the awards ceremony, which will include a fashion show and gala dinner. The contest is cosponsored by the Vicenza Fair and a mining company called AngloGold. For more information
