The Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council is a industry body that promotes the highest standard in design and craftsmanship within the jewellery industry and allied crafts. As part of the promotion of excellence in silversmithing, jewellery and the allied crafts, the Council runs the annual Craftsmanship & Design Awards.
These awards have helped to launch the careers of many eminent craftspeople in the industry and are the only peer reviewed awards in the industry’s calendar. Fondly known as the ‘Oscars of the Industry’ they reward outstanding technical skill and design ability. The Awards are open to anyone in the United Kingdom engaged in designing or working with precious metals, gemstones and other allied materials. There are three main categories for entering work and we encourage all members of the trade to enter. Click here for full details of the Rules and Regulations.
