The winner will be announced on the opening day Wednesday 23rd November.

The designers, who take turns to manage the exhibition, will be on site to give advice and answer questions. We are also hosting ‘Meet the Maker’ evenings where a selection of the exhibitors will be at Symphony Hall to talk to customers and discuss their work. It’s a great chance to see behind the jewellery and learn about the variety of techniques used by the makers. If you’re out and about doing a spot of Christmas shopping, or sampling the culinary delights of the German Market, why not pop in to see what’s on offer? Look for the displays on the left of the main doors, you can’t miss it!
This annual event at Symphony hall started 19 years ago when the group saw a need to create a selling opportunity to display the wealth of talented designer-makers in the Jewellery Quarter, who are usually hidden behind workshop doors.
In partnership with the impressive venue Symphony Hall, the first Christmas Exhibition in 1997 ran for four days and included just ten exhibitors. Since this successful debut the event has grown and developed each year, with 2016’s event hosting twenty designers. The eclectic mix of elegant, distinctive and contemporary pieces provides a fantastic platform for local talent in a magnificent setting, promoting creativity and innovation.
