Anglo American Platinum, in association with Metal Concentrators and Platinum Guild International (PGI) India, is once again proud to present the PlatAfrica 2019 jewellery design and manufacture competition. The competition is open to students, apprentices and professional jewellers in South Africa. The competition allows both students and professionals the opportunity to work with precious platinum metal and provides detailed feedback, enabling the development of jewellery design and manufacturing skills.
The theme for this year is − Your love has gone platinum
Love goes platinum… when a relationship blossoms into a contemporary love based on mutual respect, commitment, equality and expressed in the multiple intimate moments of life.
When a couple discovers they have found their soulmate, the one who truly understands and accept them for who they are, it’s a discovery they’ll cherish for a lifetime. Finding such a soulmate is indeed very rare, but for those that do, it’s the beginning of extraordinary love story that belongs to only the two of them.
This year, the target consumer is 20-40 years of age, male/female.
