Ariel Tivon wins Gem Empathy Award
LONDON, September 5, 2018 – International Jewellery London (IJL) has announced that Ariel Tivon won Gem-A’s Gem Empathy Award.
The award gave IJL 2018 exhibitors the chance to win a spectacular, fancy-cut gemstone for a bespoke jewellery design.
The full shortlist for the Gem-A Gem Empathy Award was Leya Levi Jewellery with a beautiful cuff design, Yvonne Knights with a stunning cuff and the winner, Ariel Tivon with a ring design.
It is the first time the long-standing Gem Empathy Award – organised by Gem-A (The Gemmological Association of Great Britain) and hosted by IJL – welcomed entries from the entire breadth of IJL 2018 exhibitors, not just Design Gallery exhibitors.
Ariel Tivon has won a sensational 18.28 carat ametrine gemstone from Bolivia, which has been cut by master gem-cutter, John Dyer.
This year’s gemstone was hand-chosen by the Gem-A team and features Dyer’s signature Dreamscape cut.
Those who look closely at the gemstone will also notice Dyer’s ‘JD’ mark engraved onto its surface.
Entries were judged by Gem-A CEO, Alan Hart FGA DGA; IJL event manager, Sarah Kitley-Spencer; Lindsey Straughton, NAJ; and Retail Jeweller editor, Ruth Faulkner.
The winner was announced on September 4, the final day of International Jewellery London (IJL).
