The Artisan Awards is an initiative spearheaded by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council of India; an endeavour that aims to provide a platform for creative professionals to maximise their individualistic and creative ideas in jewellery design.

The thematic contests held annually have witnessed exclusive, never-seen-before, one-of-a-kind jewels that highlight the levels of innovation this industry is capable of. With entries coming in from all parts of the world, this competition has proven time and again that it can be global in its outlook, welcoming in its inclusivity and authoritative in its ability to propel careers forward. With many more seasons still to come, The Artisan is well on its way to becoming a hallmark for ground-breaking thinking in the jewellery space.


The 2024 Artisan Awards presents 2 categories for designers
to create, play & push the limits of design:



3 Eras! 625 Entries! 27 Finalists! 9 Winners. For the 2020 edition, legendary British designer Stephen Webster graced the annual momentous event recognising and rewarding the best in jewellery design, The Artisan Jewellery Design Awards, an initiative by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). The Artisan Awards epitomises the highest levels of artistry, innovation and individuality - elevating jewellery designers to their rightful status of artistes.

Mr. Stephen Webster said, “For a piece of jewellery materials are everything. Materials and craft form the basis, but the element of design pushes things further. Design competitions are important because they challenge you to push yourself creatively, to push your own boundaries. India is steeped in tradition and India has influenced nearly all jewellery designers. I congratulate all the winners of The Artisan Awards presented by GJEPC and can say we have seen some great pieces.”
