Artistar Jewels 2016 is characterized by different initiatives: the publication of an international book, an exhibition and the selling of the jewels online. The book will be distributed in the main book shops in Italy and in the capital cities around Europe. It will be also sent to more than 5000 professionals in the jewellery sector. Through this activity it is meant to build a specific network connecting the jewellery designers, journalists, and different kinds of buyers. The book, in particular intends to communicate to its recipients, the aesthetic taste, the craftsmanship quality and the artistic value of the creations published.
The participants are also the candidates for the Artistar Contest, that will be performed online starting from the 15th of January on the website www.artistarjewels.com in the section Artistar Contest. All the users can contribute to decide the winners by expressing their opinions. The three most voted designers will be awarded with the free publication on the book Artistar Jewels 2017.
Once again, Artistar organizes an event exhibiting more than 200 jewels coming from all over the world. HOMI will be the location specifically selected in order to give the participants a great visibility along with the possibility to meet international buyers. The official launch of the book Artistar Jewels 2016 and the award ceremony for the Artistar Contest will take place on the 29th of January at 15.30 at Homi.

The past two years of Artistar Jewels meant the world to me. The 2018 edition was the primary reason that I made my brand official. I had been designing and creating for many years but mostly as a student. My confidence in my work wasn’t all that high but when you all took notice, it made me begin to take what I do seriously. It was a huge learning experience: I came home with a new mission to step up my game and I feel like I did just that. My confidence in my art continues to grow thanks to this amazing project.
Describing Artistar Jewels in three words? Audacious, professional and ambitious. Visibility is an important component, especially for those like me who come from "solo" projects. The opportunity to be part of this project and the possibility of being published in a contemporary jewelry book together with other talented artists from all over the world was really exciting and rewarding, especially after much work spent growing and establishing myself as an artist.
The professionalism, genuine care, devotion and distinctive selection of the magniﬁcent diversity of work distinguish Artistar Jewels. It is an honor and privilege to exhibit with them. All of the work in the 2019 edition was extremely fascinating. The quality and diversity of materials, styles and execution of the art was astounding. I look forward to Milano Jewelry Week. Milano is a global center for art and design and a perfect place for this event. The presence of artistar jewels will greatly enhance its stellar success.
