New York—Jewelers of America announced the winners of its 30th annual CASE Awards jewelry design contest live during its Virtual National Convention.
The annual competition recognizes members of the trade organization who exhibit Creativity, Artistry, Style, and Excellence in jewelry design.
The contest was expanded this year to include suppliers alongside retailers.
Winners were picked from more than 100 entries in eight categories, separated by retailer and supplier as well as retail values.
Each piece is judged on its overall design, marketability, practicality/wearability and the quality of the manufacturing.
“The CASE Awards shine a spotlight on the custom design and craftsmanship found in the jewelry stores of Jewelers of America Members nationwide,” Gizzi said.
Winners will receive a customized CASE Award trophy as well as national and local media coverage.
