VIJAY WINS AWARD (article first published : 2002-08-5)

Durban jewellery designer Vijay Shah recently scooped one of the top awards in the Jewellery Council of South Africa’s Jewellex Collection Awards ahead of hundreds of professional jewellers from all over South Africa.

Vijay comes from a long line of jewellers and his father has his shop in Prince Edward Street. Vijay has been in the business for 12 years and has won several awards since 1997. Having majored in jewellery design while reading for a BA degree in Fine Arts at the University of Durban Westville, he is well-known for his unusual locust-shaped earrings in gold and wood.

The winning design is a tanzanite gold and diamond dollar pin. Tanzanite is a purple/blue stone from Tanzania.
