The design draws inspiration from the geometric features of classical Arabic architecture. It uses sugarloaf cabochon emerald as the main gemstone to depict the impression of a domed roof, while the design of the guard rings is inspired by the framing style of window lattices. From the side-view, the design of the rings resemble sprouting leaves reaching outward. The combined rings portray the imagery of "the sun rises gradually over the hills, casting sunlight upon the earth." The elegance and solemnity of the design are accentuated by pearls surrounding emeralds, suitable for daytime wear. Adding the guard rings on both sides further enhances the ring's visual appeal, making it a cocktail ring suitable for evening events. The two sets of guard rings are set with diamonds and emeralds for different color schemes, allowing for various combinations according to preferences, symbolizing the moment of transition between night and day, echoing the theme of "moment at sunrise."
The World Academy of Design (WAOD), located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, organized its first edition of World Jewellery Design Competition, WADA Awards, at the end of 2022. The competition centered on the theme "Nature - Sunrise," specifying the use of emeralds as the primary material to depict the beauty of nature at the time of sunrise. The competition comprised over ten categories of jewelry design. After nearly a year-long journey, the grand finals took place in Dubai in November 2023, concluding successfully. I'm honored to have secured the second place in the category of women's wedding rings.
Participating in category WR3 (wedding rings, cocktail rings, multi-finger rings, palm rings, etc.), I went through the first stage of design submissions, the second stage of digital modeling, and video for visual rendering. Eventually, I progressed to the top five and prepared to compete for the top three positions in the finals. I'm immensely grateful for the arrangements and assistance provided by WADA Awards, and the manufacturer Kamyen Jewellery UAE as sponsor, enabling my design to be physically showcased on the stage at the final ceremony.
