The RJGA has grown im­pres­sively and is recog­nised as one of the most trans­par­ent and process driven awards in the sec­tor. There has been a 40% growth in nom­i­na­tions re­ceived over last year, which is a good in­di­ca­tor of RJGA’s rise in the pop­u­lar­ity on a pan-In­dia scale. The tally of over 650 nom­i­na­tions came from known jewellers hail­ing from tier 2 and tier 3 towns as well as met­ros.

Along with Ernst & Young as process ad­vi­sors, and its re­puted panel of judges com­pris­ing in­dus­try vet­er­ans such as jewellery de­sign­ers Neha Lulla and Paulomi Sang­havi, manag­ing ed­i­tor of Soli­taire and Adorn mag­a­zines, Shanoo Bi­jlani, fash­ion de­signer Rosy Ah­luwalia, Sau­rav Ma­hesh­wari, Piyush Gupta, Sud­hir Sing­hal and Ashok Seth. The RJGA drew out the best of In­dia’s tal­ent in the re­tail jewellery in­dus­try through two rounds of jury – a pre­lim­i­nary round, fol­lowed by the fi­nal round, where jewellers had to dis­play ac­tual jewellery pieces to the judges.

The award cat­e­gories were ex­panded this year keep­ing in mind the di­verse ac­tiv­i­ties of the re­tail jewellery in­dus­try. These in­cluded Store of the Year, Em­ployer of the Year, Most In­no­va­tive Mar­ket­ing Cam­paign, Ex­cel­lence in Cus­tomer Ser­vice and Ex­cel­lence in De­sign.

With more than 500 jewellery re­tail­ers, man­u­fac­tur­ers, HNIs and the cap­i­tal’s fash­ion­able set in at­ten­dance, the awards night also com­prised four cap­ti­vat­ing fash­ion se­quences by show­stop­pers such as Aditi Hun­dia, Yamaha Fas­cino Miss Diva Supra­na­tional 2018; Shrad­dha Shashid­har, Yamaha Fas­cino Miss Diva 2017 - Miss Uni­verse In­dia; Priyadarshini Chat­ter­jee, Fbb Fem­ina Miss In­dia World 2016 and Pe­den Ongmu Nam­gyal, Yamaha Fas­cino Miss Diva Supra­na­tional 2017.
