VANCOUVER TRUE NORTH GEMS will be the sponsor of the Coloured Stone category of the 2005 Canadian Jeweller magazine’s Excellence in Design awards. This competition is held annually to encourage jewellery designers and manufacturers to showcase their skills nationally and also to develop awareness of coloured gemstones within the industry.
“The use of colour is arguably the fastest growing aspect of fine jewellery design, and True North’s participation as a sponsor confirms the company’s belief that this emerging trend will benefit the company in the future. Canada has some extremely talented artisans and we are proud to help in whatever way we can,” says Nick Houghton, True North’s managing director, jewellery manufacturing and marketing. “Leaders in their particular field often sponsor design competitions, and we feel True North’s participation in this event signals another step forward for the company.”
Canadian Jeweller is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a new competition and six new categories. For a copy of the rules and entry form, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
