Applications now open for The Jewellery Cut Live bursary

One emerging jewellery designer will win a spot at the coveted London jewellery show as well as a host of prizes including a Fuli Gemstones peridot

August 14, 2020 By The Jewellery Cut


The Jewellery Cut Live in association with Fuli Gemstones will continue its altruistic tradition of gifting one promising, emerging jewellery designer with a free place at the popular London jewellery show, and applications are now open.

 

To be eligible to win the bursary space at this season’s event, held at The Royal Institution on October 11th & 12th, 2020, all jewellery designers entering must be based in the UK and have been in business for three years or less (full entry details below). Previous winners of The Jewellery Cut Live bursary have included: Cult of Youth, Ama Dhami and, most recently, Le Ster.

 

“It was a wonderful opportunity to be selected for The Jewellery Cut Live bursary award,” says Aishleen Lester, the designer behind Le Ster, which won a spot at February’s event. “I gained valuable insights throughout the show.”

 

The deadline for entries is 24th August, 2020. A shortlist of four designers will be created by The Jewellery Cut team, with the finalists then presenting to a panel of high-profile judges from the fashion and jewellery industry to secure the coveted winning spot.

 

In addition to showing and selling their work at The Jewellery Cut Live, and gaining exposure to press and store buyers, the winner will also receive a wider package of benefits, including a sizeable gemstone to set in a future design. Fuli Gemstones, which has recently signed up to sponsor The Jewellery Cut Live for the next three years, will gift the winning jeweller a peridot, a grass-green gemstone unearthed at its mine near the Changbai Mountains in China.

 

See below for a full list of prizes that will be gifted to the bursary winner, which include donations from De Beers, Retail Jeweller magazine, The National Association of Jewellers, Goldsmiths’ Fair, Honest PR and The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office.

 

“The Jewellery Cut Live is garnering a reputation as a real incubator of jewellery talent,” says The Jewellery Cut co-founder Rachael Taylor. “We have had some incredible jewellery designers pass through our bursary scheme in the past few seasons, and I’m very excited to see who applies for October’s show. What we are seeking is a designer who can offer originality, beauty and a strong sense of self and concept.”
