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 honour 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. The winning designs were selected by David and Nina Newman, lecturers at the Tshwane University of Technology.

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

The range features on the homepage at studio1980za.com. Enquiries can be submitted by clicking on the unique link contained in each image.

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