Hoover & Strong is pleased to announce that their product development manager, Jerry E Taylor has been granted the prestigious Bronze A´ Design Award in the Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Competition Category for his “Mystic Falls” ring design. Taylor’s design was chosen out of thousands of submissions, by the international judging committee of the A´ Design Awards & Competitions.
“Mystic Falls pushes design limits and elements with baguettes, one of the hardest stone shapes to work with,” said Taylor. “The design captures and calms the heart using smooth flowing lines of the baguettes. The angle of the rolling clear baguettes represents how a river flows. The top layer represents the excitement of springtime. Flowers create a balance that is pure and naturally elegant.”
The Bronze A´ Design Award is given to designs that deliver an exemplary level of perfection. Entries to the A´ Jewelry Design Awards are peer reviewed and anonymously judged by a grand jury panel of prominent academics, press members and experienced professionals.
