In celebration of the upcoming season, a recent Hong Kong jewelry contest awarded six beautiful pieces that complemented the theme "The Glory of Spring," according to Diamonds.net. They will be on display at an upcoming exhibit in March and were chosen among more than 370 entries. Each one was judged for innovation, creativity, aesthetics and marketability, among other factors.
First place went to Cheng Chan Man Chi's design for her bracelet, Spring Vitality, which won first place and was awarded the "Best of Show Award" and the "Craftsmanship & Technology Award." The piece features silver and pearls that are meant to capture spring's emerging flowers and blooming life.
Second place was awarded to a timepiece created by designer Lieh Ka Man. Titled The Shadow of Butterflies, the piece was created to reflect the flapping of butterfly wings. Third place went to the Seed ring, which displayed a number of nature scenes that represented Spring scenery.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than half of jewelers are self-employed. As of 2008, there were 52,100 precious stone workers in 2008 and prospects for future employment of skilled and custom jewelers has been deemed "favorable."
