(GREAT NECK, N.Y.) – Grunberger Diamonds, Inc., the world’s largest producer of AGS 0 Ideal Cut Hearts and Arrows diamonds that range from 0.0025 to 0.40 cts with over 40 different qualities and shades, is currently hosting their 2013 Grunberger Diamonds Jewelry Design Competition. For the first time, thousands and possibly millions of consumers will be the judges for a jewelry design competition via social media platforms.
The competition is open to all designers, bench jewelers and manufacturers. All entries will have the designer’s name, images of their product and bio prominently promoted by Grunberger Diamonds, and all entries will be featured in one or more trade journals.
“We strongly encourage anyone who has a creative eye and passion for jewelry design to submit their work,” said owner David Grunberger. “We are very pleased to execute this exciting international competition, which is intended to showcase the extraordinary brilliance and fire of Grunberger Precision Cut Diamonds.”
Winners will be chosen in all categories, and awards will be given at JCK Las Vegas 2014. The categories include engagement semi-mounts, wedding set, wedding band (her) and wedding band (his) in bridal; neckware, earrings, rings and bracelets in fashion; and neckware, rings, and bracelets in men’s fashion.
The piece that receives the most consumer votes will be the grand-prize winner and will be purchased by Grunberger Diamonds. One consumer judge will be given the grand-prize piece on national media on Valentine’s Day 2014.
The only requirements are that the design be created with a precious metal and Grunberger diamonds, which will be sold at a deep discount to all designers who enter the competition. Entries must be received by October 1, 2013. At that time, they will be professionally photographed, and the photo is included in the $150 entry fee.
