Baselworld 2011: Platinum Design Awards Winners Announced!

Stunning Platinum Designs at Baselworld

Baselworld 2011 was the scene for the latest Platinum Design Awards competition held by Platinum Guild International. 36 stunning examples of platinum designs were displayed at the 27 participating manufacturer’s booths, and were judged by over 30 international journalists visiting the show.

There were three platinum categories to enter: Men's jewelry, Bridal jewelry and Trends. Each journalist voted for the piece that, in their opinion, was the best in each category. The votes were counted and the winners were announced at a cocktail party held on Saturday evening, where each winner was also presented with an award by Ruth Donaldson, UK manager of PGI.

The winning pieces were:
