This year Beaverbrooks invite you to design a complimentary suite of bridal jewellery, taking inspiration from what you cherish and admire the most about our beautiful planet. Be as creative and original as possible in designing a bridal suite that symbolises and celebrates love, hope and the future.
The suite is to consist of a matching pendant, earrings, bracelet and hairpin. It is be made in 9ct, 18ct gold or platinum, any diamond cut can be utilised, to a maximum diamond weight of one carat per piece. Complimentary pearls and gemstones can be included if desired, and earrings must not exceed half carat in diamond weight each.
Your presentation must include a scaled drawing and specifications such as measurements and materials used, along with close attention to the metal gram weight for this commercially focused and price positioning task. Evidence of research and inspiration used in your creative thought process will be appreciated. Designs must also show consideration to manufacture, as well as a supportive description relating to your inspiration, concept and development.
Please present your designs either as a 2D hand drawing, 2D CAD illustration or 3D CAD render. A combination of any of these formats is also welcome. This design brief has been written in liaison with Pamela Statham of Continental UK.
