ELLE Jewelry Design Contest

Design Stylish Jewelry, Win Awesome Prizes

Win up to $750 in jewelry, a jewelry designer job interview from ELLE Jewelry and a brand new 3D printer from Kudo3D for your elegant women's jewelry design. Your design could also become part of ELLE's line of jewelry to be sold as a sterling silver product all around the world!

All you need to do is create a jewelry design that wows the panel of judges. Here are some simple guidelines to help your design stand out from the crowd:

  • Should be a ring, necklace pendant or bracelet
  • Shouldn't include a stone in the design
  • Should fit in with the style of ELLE's current line of jewelry
  • ELLE is a brand that makes fashion accessible and speaks to feminine, positive and self-confident women, so design accordingly!

Using fashion as a benchmark for creative inspiration, ELLE Jewelry designs reflect the most up-to-date and ready-to-wear trends. Like the pages of ELLE magazine, ELLE Jewelry evolves from season to season, as colors and fashion trends change. The ELLE Jewelry collection offers a distinguished look and edge that is chic, modern, and bold. Ultimately, we believe accessories should be a personal expression, a way of celebrating a woman’s love of style.
