Amberif Design Award

AMBERIF DESIGN AWARD WITH THE THEME OF ULTIMATE BEAUTY

This year’s 24th edition of Amberif Design Award, the International Amber Jewellery Design Competition, had 130 artists from 25 countries. This marks another impressive rise in the interest in ADA. Amberif Design Award received 169 entries, nearly 15% more than the year before. ADA’s honourees come from Poland, Finland, Taiwan and Iran.

Ultimate Beauty
Beauty is also for the eyes, but first of all it creates and stabilises our identity. We perceive others as beautiful if they are charismatic, just as we welcome things as beautiful if they carry a story. Our striving for beauty is actually a striving for life. Therefore, we appreciate a kind of beauty that lasts longer than a moment and which seduces us to live. Amber radiates this special kind of beauty. With its wide spectrum of natural colours, it highlights the wearer’s beauty and identity. Its natural inclusions and small cracks speak of life beyond perfection. In Amberif Design Award, we seek jewellery with amber as a commentary on ultimate beauty.
