Fif­teen win­ners of the Mid­dle East Jew­ellery of the Year Awards 2016 were an­nounced at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony held un­der the pa­tron­age of His Ex­cel­lency Zayed bin Rashid Alza­yani, Bahrain min­is­ter of in­dus­try, com­merce and tourism at the Ritz Carl­ton Ho­tel, Bahrain in Novem­ber. The Awards were held for the 12th con­sec­u­tive year in con­junc­tion with the Jew­ellery Ara­bia ex­hi­bi­tion that took place from Novem­ber 22-26 at the Bahrain In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.
