Jewellery World Awards (JWA) is an annual programme, covering businesses from mine-to-market in the international jewellery industry. Established in 2012, and formerly known as the JNA Awards, it receives entries from all over the world. An independent, robust, transparent and intellectually rigorous judging process honours outstanding individuals and exceptional companies that make significant contributions and have a positive impact in the world of jewellery and gemstones.

Organised by Informa Markets Jewellery, JWA is one of the most respected awards among the international jewellery and gemstone community. JWA promotes innovation, excellence, best practices, genuine leadership, and the advancement of sustainability, for the betterment of all.

JWA embraces a broad range of entrants. Companies or individuals seeking to elevate their brand, showcase achievements and successes, recognise teamwork, be seen amongst leaders of the industry, and share business best-practices, should enter JWA.

It is FREE to enter JWA. Each company may enter a maximum of three (3) categories. Once shortlisted as an Honouree, a fee to cover the comprehensive Honouree Package is paid. This covers exclusive materials and global marketing campaigns. By submitting an entry, the entrant agrees to pay an Honouree Package fee of US$2,800 for the first shortlisted category, and US$500 for any subsequent category. No additional fee will be incurred if an Honouree becomes the Recipient. Please refer to the “Entry Submission” page for more details.

JWA respects all cultures and languages. As an international award, experts from different countries and regions are invited to the judging panel. To facilitate the judging session, entrants are required to use English unless specified otherwise. If supporting documents contain languages other than English (e.g. certificate, video, etc), please provide English captions or subtitles, or they may not be accepted by the judging panel.

Judges look for innovation and high standards, especially those demonstrating best-business practices and excellence, regardless of the scale of business operation, area of specialisation and geographical location.

Honourees, and shortlisted finalists, of JWA will be announced via the Online Announcement of Honourees in August, 2021.
