Now open for entries, the CASE Awards honor exceptional jewelry design from JA members.
“The CASE Awards showcase the talents of bench jewelers and jewelry designers and allow JA Members to gain valuable consumer and trade recognition,” explained JA’s Director of Public Relations and Events Amanda Gizzi.
“The jewelry entered into the CASE Awards demonstrates the high-level of craftsmanship and creativity that consumers can find in Jewelers of America member stores nationwide.”
CASE stands for creativity, artistry, style, and excellence—all criteria for winning designs.
Open to all JA member companies, the CASE Awards have eight overall categories, with each of the below having one for retailers and one for suppliers.

Ten winners will be named—one in each of the above, plus two “Best in Show” winners.
A judging panel of industry experts will evaluate entries based on overall design, marketability, wearability, and quality of manufacture.
