Congratulations to the 2017 Saul Bell Design Award winners. See the winning pieces and read in-depth interviews with the jewelers.


The judges of the Saul Bell Design Award competition bring a broad range of perspectives from across the jewelry industry. They are accomplished and respected bench jewelers and designers, innovators and educators at leading industry organizations, and experts in their craft. The first judging is based on the photos and descriptions submitted by entrants. In the final round, the judges examine each finalist piece by hand and on a model.
