2017 Australian Pearl Jewellery Design Comp – home screen link



Cygnet Bay Pearls is pleased to announce The Australian Pearl Jewellery Design Competition for 2017. We invite Australian and international designer jewellers to celebrate the iconic Australian South Sea Pearl.


The competition is based around these famous pearls and the talents of Australia’s designer Jewellers, Silver and Goldsmiths.
Since the Australian cultured pearling industry emerged in the late 1950’s Australia has consistently produced the best pearls in the
world. Unlike most other pearl producing molluscs, the Pinctada maxima produces only one pearl every 2 years. They are rare,
accounting for less than 1% of global pearl production, and valuable, making up around 20% of pearl production by value.

This competition brings Australian South Sea Pearls direct from Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, into the hands of those that make them
wearable. Transformed into beautiful, creative wearable pieces of art . We invite jewellers to amaze, to invigorate the way pearls
are seen and worn.
