Six Rings Design Competition

The Six Rings Design Competition, hosted by Metcon, was part of their vision to promote sustainability in the South African jewellery industry. Neville Crosse Delivered an inspiring speech on the topic which hinted at the value of community within the industry.

It’s a tremendous honor for Studio 1980 ZA to have our original Elegantly Refined design rise to the top as one of the six winners. The six winning designs were selected out of eighty entries by David and Nina Newman who are both lecturers at the Tshwane University of Technology.

We have modeled our Summer Range on the design elements of the Elegantly Refined ring with stylish floral hints in the settings, delicate engraving and natural inspirations.

The range is now featured on the homepage at studio1980za.com and enquiries can be submitted by clicking on the unique link contained in each image.

All designs are highly customizable, allowing you to select from a variety of gemstones and diamonds, your preferred metals and components of the designs can even be combined for you to create your own unique piece.
