Vote for Your Favorite in the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge

This year, nine designers took the challenge of designing jewelry around a 4.59 carat fancy purple sapphire from Omi Gems. A special daughter about to leave the nest and a natural purple sapphire are at the heart of the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge. Nine designers were supplied with the fictional scenario, presented here, about a father wanting to surprise his graduating daughter with a special gift before sending her out to conquer the world.

Now it’s your turn: Vote for your favorite design by visiting the MJSA.org website and following their voting instructions before October 31, 2015. The winner of the 2015 MJSA Journal A Little Piece of Home Design Challenge will be announced in the December print edition of MJSA Journal.

An Atomic Concept for the 8th Design in the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge

Marilyn Robb from Myerson’s Limited in Toronto, Canada approached the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge “A Little Piece of Home” with a design integral to the setting of the center stone, a purple sapphire cushion provided by Omi Gems.

As a design concept, Marilyn focused on the fictional client’s love of science, deciding on an atomic pendant design with the purple sapphire serving as the atom’s nucleus.
