60 Diamonds and One More

/ Israel

The Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum in Ramat Gan has hosted a special exhibition in honor of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the state. The Israel Diamond Institute, along with the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Labor and the Israel Jewelry Manufacturers Association, declared a design competition for jewelry set with diamonds.

Jewelry designers and jewelers participating in the competition submitted 54 designs for the first stage, from which the competition's steering and judicial committee chose some 20 to advance to the second round.

All of the jewelry in the competition were manufactured by Israeli jewelers using diamonds polished in Israel.

The jewelry was conceived by emerging designers as well as established ones and inspired by Israeli cultural symbols, cultural roots, events in the country's history, local architecture, and even the flowers that grace Israel's fields.

The first place prize was awarded to the Moriah white gold and diamond ring designed by Shaul-Aharon Elisha from Haifa. Second place went to Orly Eisenman and Drorit Wessberger, also from Haifa, for a pair of gold heart earrings that combine hearts and olive leaves, and the third place prize was awarded to Yaniv Shapira from Tel Aviv for his "Eternal Light" ring.
