The Next Now

THE NEXT NOW represents the freshest, most vibrant work from new and emerging jewelry designers. In Fall of 2016, the first annual THE NEXT NOW competition took place in New York City with a judging panel of retailers, designers, editors and industry heavy-hitters.

Among a field of more than 100 applicants, designer Kirsty Stone of Retrouvaí was selected as the first annual competition's winner. In Spring of 2017, designer Ann Korman of ARK Fine Jewelry was selected as the winner. Ylang 23's buying team has curated a collection from several other designers who entered the competition, with more new pieces to come.

The competition's third edition took place in New York City on August 17th. The fourth edition will take place in Spring of 2018.
