so fresh. the jewellery award by Pierre Lang

Contemporary jewellery design is not only an integral component of fashion, but has long become a trend-setting force in its own right.
While jewellery was long relegated to the realm of status symbol or arts & crafts, in recent years a new dialogue between jewellery, fashion and the body has emerged, inspiring a re-evaluation of the concept of jewellery and a whole series of fresh ideas. Today, there is hardly a photo series to be found in international fashion magazines where jewellery does not play a key role. 

With an award money of EUR 10.000,00, so fresh. the jewellery award by Pierre Lang aims to respond to these new developments by recognizing distinctive contemporary jewellery design that goes beyond our conventional concept of what jewellery stands for, enriching our appreciation of this art form. Contemporary jewellery design raises unexpected questions, opening up surprising new ways of seeing and providing a steady source of inspiration.
