Birmingham School of Jewellery has unveiled the official medals which will be awarded to athletes at the Commonwealth Games this summer.
The medals have been designed by three students from the school.
The medals are being manufactured by Toye, Kenning and Spencer in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, a location which is included on the Birmingham 2022 marathon route.
The medal was designed by a group of students led by Amber Alys, with Francesca Wilcox and Catarina Rodrigues Caeiro also part of the winning team that has designed the ribbon and the box for the medal too.
Amber Alys, the lead designer for the medal, spoke on behalf of the design team and said: “It has been incredible to see our designs come to life, and we’re delighted with the medals, ribbons and presentation boxes.
“We really thought about the athletes when designing the medals – the connection between athletes and the journey they go on to achieve their dream of standing on top of the podium.
She added: “We wanted to create something with a jewel-like quality so that the athletes had something that they could treasure for the rest of their lives. We really hope the athletes like them.”
