Ingredient Branding Partner Oringo Desires to Inspire with Silver Dream Competition
The story goes back to 2013 when Oringo decided to launch their first Silver Dream design contest. Open to absolutely anyone except for professional jewelry designers, the competition aimed at finding unique designs with exceptional storytelling and was, at the same time, an excellent illustration of Oringo’s own desire to inspire a new generation of designers. Last year for the first time, all contestants were obliged to design exclusively with products from the Swarovski Gemstones assortment. As a result, highly creative and sophisticated designs entered the competition which made both Oringo and us very thrilled and proud.
As a first step, all designers were obliged to provide their entries as sketches. At this stage, Oringo received over a thousand applications that were inspired by nature, space, traditions and arts, using various cuts & colors from the Swarovski Gemstones and Swarovski Zirconia assortment.
As creativity has no boundaries, it was difficult to select the winning designs but eventually, 12 projects were chosen. The main prize offered the design to be manufactured in silver by Oringo, as well as the unique Swarovski Zirconia silver pen for future inspiration.
The Award Ceremony for winners took place on May 25 at the Jeweller Expo Ukraine in Kiev where all 12 jewelry pieces were presented to public. Now, they enter standard Oringo product catalogue and are available worldwide for purchase at https://www.etsy.com/pl/shop/OringoWorld
We would like to congratulate all winners, as well as Oringo - on this outstanding initiative. We can hardly wait to see which silver dreams are 2019 contestants dreaming right now…
