2020 AGTA Award-Winning Styles
The American Gem Trade Association’s Spectrum Awards is the most prestigious creative competition for our industry. A panel of experts recognizes the top designers and lapidaries who work with natural colored gemstones and cultured pearls to create fine jewelry designs. The judges evaluate each piece for innovation, quality, craftsmanship, and beauty.
Pop the bubbly because we are thrilled to share that we received two awards this year! Aptly titled “The Vision,” our winning entry took home 2nd Place and Platinum Honors in the Bridal Wear category of this esteemed competition.
This inspired piece is set in the most precious platinum metal. The beautiful velvet blue sapphire cushion center stone consists of an 11.58 ct. GIA-certified sapphire accentuated by two 8 mm tapered baguettes with F in color and VVS in clarity. Highlighting the blue sapphire are 158 micro set round brilliant cuts, all F-G in color and VS in clarity with a total weight of 0.84ctw. This captivating design is truly a work of art down to every facet and groove.
Over the past 25 years, we are honored to have received numerous design awards. Adding to this list of accolades makes our founding President and CEO, Benjamin Javaheri, the most awarded jewelry designer in our industry.
“Every recognition we get is deeply appreciated. When our peers and jewelry experts grant us these awards, it humbles us and fuels our passion to master our craft in creating beautiful, one-of-a-kinds like The Vision.”- Benjamin Javaheri
This extraordinary achievement is a silver lining to what has been a challenging year for us all. We feel grateful for our peers in the jewelry industry who continue to inspire us to keep creating wearable works of art that help people worldwide celebrate joyful moments with a token of their love.
