Annual Competition

The Platafrica Competition is a  highlight in South Africa's jewellery manufacturing world.

This annual competition offers the  opportunity to  local jewellers to manufacture pieces using metal provided by Anglo American and Metal Concentrators.

Each year a theme is set. Professional as well as student jewellers design and manufacture pieces to the specific brief.  This gives everyone a chance to work with this magical and alluring metal.  The student category is particularly important as this is the first time that they get the chance to work with platinum. And many a lasting love affair with this marvellous metal begins.

This competition is particularly important as every piece is handmade by the entrants.  Some truly glorious jewellery is created.

Veronica is proud to have been a judge in this exciting competition for the past 12 years.  The video interview featured on this page is from the latest competition and tells more.
