The recognition we received from the JNA Awards meant so much to us as it really was the culmination of so much hard work and dedication from the team.
For De Beers Group, it shows that we are serious about protecting the industry from unscrupulous players, and winning this award gets the message out to a wider audience that we are here, with an (now award-winning) instrument that they can use to protect their business. It is also fantastic for De Beers Group Industry Services (formally IIDGR), and the De Beers Group to be recognised by such a professional and prestigious organisation as the JNA Awards.
Since winning the Innovation of the Year award at the JNA Awards 2018 we have had so much positive feedback and have been able to utilise this success with further sales and relationship building. If you really believe in your product, or service, then you really have to follow your instinct and enter. This is what we did, and we ended up winning and it has been a thoroughly positive experience ever since.

It was a big challenge to be qualified as an Honouree of the JNA Awards and it was a great moment for us when we finally became the Recipients of the Awards.
This was very meaningful for our company, as the brand is now recognised worldwide. We believe the recognitions from the JNA Awards can help us expand the business to new markets across the globe.
First of all, we could make the most out of all the PR activities by the JNA Awards. Many local media highlighted our brand as the first Korean Awards Recipient, it helps differentiate us from other local competitors.
We brought a couple of our best performing sales managers to the JNA Awards to show how our brand is recognised among other outstanding companies worldwide. For them it was an amazing experience worth sharing with colleagues and customers, and it strongly enhances their loyalty to the company.
It is a great experience to be a part of the JNA Awards community, meeting and discussing with fellow Recipients and Honourees always provide us with diverse insights. Through this platform, we can meet great people in the jewellery industry to share new ideas and information.
In 2017, our Emerald Paternity Test, as part of our Provenance Proof Initiative, won us the important and prestigious category of Industry Innovation of the Year at the JNA Awards. This demonstrates and confirms the industry’s need and interest in innovative solutions in making the precious gem trade more transparent.
The JNA Awards offers an exciting platform to support the Provenance Proof Initiative by presenting this important topic to all stakeholders who embrace transparency in the gemstone industry and want to add their own input.
The Provenance Proof Initiative now includes the first blockchain for coloured gems, which allows all stakeholders to securely document the journey of a gem and prove its unbiased origin along each step of the supply chain.

We are grateful that the JNA Awards has constantly recognised Jewelmer for its contributions to the jewellery industry.
Through the years, it is our privilege to be acknowledged for being an enterprise that can make a lasting impact on the lives of others and a positive contribution to our environment.
We strongly value the partnership we have built with the JNA Awards and the opportunity to share the beauty of the finest South Sea pearl Jewellery to the rest of the world.
We wish the JNA Awards more success in the coming years and that they continue to inspire others in the industry to create a positive influence to the world.
Since earning the title of “Manufacturer of the Year” from the JNA Awards in 2018, our company is better recognised in the international jewellery and gemstone industry. The increased brand awareness made it easier for us to connect with and expand our network of customers and suppliers. We also witness an increase in employee motivation across our four production facilities in Asia, as our team’s efforts are being celebrated at an international level. Joining the JNA Awards has made positive impact to both our internal and external operations.

Pranda Group has joined the JNA Awards since its inception in 2012 and has the honour to be validated by the Awards for a few times since then.
At Pranda Group, we regard the JNA Awards as an important platform for the jewellery industry. The Awards drives us and the industry to grow in a strong and sustainable way. It is also a great community for me to meet and gather with other entrepreneurs from the trade to exchange information and ideas.
With its credibility, the Awards makes our brands more recognisable in Asia, and promotes the Thailand jewellery industry to the rest of the world. My sincere thanks to the JNA Awards for their contribution to the industry.

It has been 5 years since Zbird first received the honour as Recipient of “E-tailor of the Year” of the JNA Awards in 2014. The JNA Awards, the most professional and influential Awards programme in Asia, helps us to gain widespread recognition within the trade and provides impactful endorsement to our consumers.
We continuously applied for the JNA awards in the following years. Ms. Xu Xiao, co-founder of Zbird, was awarded as Recipient of “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2018. While JNA Awards has thrived to become the most credible industry awards programme in the jewellery sector, Zbird has also grown a lot during these years. We have enjoyed extensive media exposure on TV, print and internet from being a Recipient of the Awards. We hope to continue to flourish along with the JNA Awards, and contribute to making it one of the most impactful awards in the world.
