Creativity, craftsmanship, and symbolism

Apply now for the design award that has stood the test of time


The timeless art and craft of watch and jewellery making

Jewelry and watch design stands at the intersection of quality, values, and innovation. They represent a centuries-long history of creativity, craftsmanship, symbolism and self-expression, while trends such as lab diamonds simultaneously promote advanced, technical know-how. Long considered a preserve of traditionalism, modern jewelry design is expected to be brand-focused, digital, and sustainable. The purchase of a valuable piece of jewelry is associated with a calm, upscale atmosphere and the presence of an expert. This is where an iF Design Award can act as an expert seal, especially on digital sales channels, because jewelry is judged not only on its external form but also on function and concept.

Above all, through the Impact factor, the iF DESIGN AWARD rewards longevity and sustainability. Watches and jewelry that have been awarded the iF Design Award evince high-quality workmanship, timeless design and lasting value – pieces that can be enjoyed for generations.
