Design as an element of a business is of immense value. In today’s robust global economic framework all businesses understand the power and financial value of a good design. In this “Era of Design” successful brands seem to really value design and utilize it to secure a competitive advantage’
The Designers’ fraternity in the Middle Eastern region have played an important role in transforming the gems and jewellery industry in the gulf and have highlighted the importance of designer jewellery and the aspiration that it builds towards a jewellery piece. There are a number of local as well as multinational educational institutions that are working towards churning out highest calibre designers for the gems and jewellery sector. Leading organisations, trade bodies and associations have recognised the value of the Design segment in the jewellery by appreciating their good work through awards and accolades. Retailers and manufacturers too have utilised the services of Jewellery designers as a transition towards theme based and value based jewellery range.
The New Jeweller group in its 8th year as a dedicated publishing and Media house for the GCC region, has been interacting with the Gems and Jewellery trade members, Designers, Educational institutions, and Ministries and have been compiling critical reports pertaining to the region and has been a part of the progress of the gems and jewellery sector in the said economies. We, at The New Jeweller Group, have always kept the Designer fraternity at the helm of the gems and jewellery sector and have always tried to promote and publicize leading designers and their work through our magazine and www.thenewjewelleruae.me. In our tryst to give the Middle Eastern designers and their inspirational work a thrust in the International markets, we have also profiled select designers through interviews, articles and design sections.
Over time we, at The New Jeweller UAE team, have been interacting with leading designers and design institutes in the GCC region and firmly believe that Design is crucial for the Gems and Jewellery Industry to succeed in a constantly changing, globally competitive world. Through design the industry would be able to create a better future for everyone as design is the only practice that makes commercial, ecological and social sense, all at the same time.
