Best of Gold Winner announced by National Jewelers

The National Jeweler is a great website for all sorts of jewelry based information. They routinely have various contests to determine for whom they consider to be the best in various jewelry categories.

One of their latest contests was held in June and was a best of gold competition. They received many entries and ended up with this stunning "Verve Bangle Bracelet" as the winner.

The design is by Shaill Jhaveri who says that he draws inspiration from his youth in India and recent travels to the Far East, and he describes his 18-karat gold pieces, including the winning cuff, as "cross cultural contemporary."

The bracelet is crafted in 18-karat yellow gold and oxidized sterling silver. I love the positive and negative spaces as well as the effects of the overlapping patterns.

You can read more about the contest and this bracelet by visiting the National Jeweler website.
