Organised by JNA of UBM Asia and sponsored by Crossfor Co Ltd, Platinum Guild International (PGI) and the Tahitian Pearl Association Hong Kong (TPAHK), the competition aims to foster creativity and innovation in jewellery design.

The JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 judging panel, chaired by renowned jewellery designer Fei Liu, selected 15 finalists and evaluated each entry against the criteria set by the organisers as well as the entries' adherence to the respective themes. The judging panel also includes eminent jewellery designer Robert Tateossian; famous visual artist Bradley Theodore; and publisher and editor-in-chief of the JNA group, Christie Dang. The three category judges are Ida Wong, general manager of TPAHK; Hidetaka Dobashi, founder and CEO of Crossfor; and Suzanne Wong, senior product manager of PGI.

Of the 15 finalists, five are from mainland China; three are from Taiwan; while the rest are from Japan, Egypt, the US, Malaysia, Iran, Italy, and Bulgaria.

The organisers said they were encouraged by the deluge of high-calibre submissions for the 2018/19 competition, saying this injected new concepts into the existing design framework and elevated designs of dancing stone, platinum and Tahitian pearl jewellery.

Winners of the JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 will be announced in June 2019.
