KGK Group, sponsor of the JNA Conference: “From Inspiration to Innovation – The Designer’s Journey of Creativity” on September 19, 2019, is reaffirming its commitment to nurturing design talents for the long-term development of the international jewellery industry.
Building on the success of the conference, the multinational conglomerate is now inviting expressions of interest from professional jewellery designers on potential business collaborations and from amateur designers and students on design internships with the group’s varied endeavours.
“Jewellery design is a discipline, just like engineering, marketing or accounting. At the heart of the brand are designers who study and practice the art of creating functional, beautiful and balanced jewellery pieces that please the eye and stimulate the senses,” said KGK Group Vice Chairman Sanjay Kothari. “The JNA Conference was instrumental in bringing together the best design talents on a single platform. KGK recognises the importance of design and working with the finest designers. We wish to collaborate with more talented designers to ensure that every KGK jewellery is a true piece of art.”
