Year of Jewelry 2024 Finalists

Brilliance of Courage, Stories, and Colors

The works of the finalists particularly highlight courage, daring, and fearlessness. The jewelry also showcases the strong stories and personal experiences of the creators, as well as their symbolic meanings. The materials used in the jewelry include silver, gold-plated silver, and gemstones. Particularly, colorful and large gemstones shine in this year's final pieces, including the beautifully glowing Finnish spectrolite.

This year, the competition's patron is the Minister of Science and Culture, Sari Multala.
