Hawaii Jewelers Association Annual Banquet & Design Contest

Do you create artistic jewelry pieces? Enter your art work in our Annual Banquet and Design Contest! This annual event is locally & nationally recognized every year!

To be considered by the judges, each entry must be an original piece and designed by an HJA member making use of only precious metals and genuine gem stones.  All pieces were evaluated on the overall design, marketability, practicality/wear-ability, and craftsmanship.  All attendees at our annual banquet also vote for their favorite piece in the People’s Choice Award.

There are  4 categories to compete in; Jewelry Under $3,500, Jewelry $3,500 and Over, Hawaiian Theme Jewelry, and Estate Jewelry. The designer of the piece with the overall highest total points is also awarded Designer of The Year.
