JCK Jeweler’s Choice Awards 2023

First Place | Colored Stone Jewelry - $2,501 – $5,000

“Our team is always looking for new opportunities to expand our selection. At the Vicenzaoro jewelry show in Italy last year, we noticed a rising trend in colorful gemstone pieces. We just had to make sure we offered an eye-catching statement piece — like these rainbow earrings — in our fine jewelry assortment.” -Colin Meaux, Fine Jewelry Product Management

Turquoise and Ruby Snake Earrings

INSTORE Design Awards 2023

Third Place | Colored Stone Jewelry – Under $5,000

“The snake is one of the oldest and most enduring motifs in jewelry, symbolizing many things for the wearer — longevity, eternity, rebirth. I wanted to infuse this timeless symbol with a contemporary flair by mixing trendy Turquoise with bold Ruby and a celestial earring top.” – Austin Zarobell, Product Design & Development

Personalized Jewelry

Engravable Bar Bracelet

JCK Jeweler’s Choice Awards 2023

Second Place | Personalized Jewelry

“The personalization trend shows no sign of slowing down, and engravable pieces allow for maximum versatility. For this bracelet, I wanted to create an “everyday statement” piece with a simple, timeless silhouette that can be worn alone or in a stack, for a special occasion or as a luxurious touch to a casual outfit.” -Austin Zarobell, Product Design & Development

rainbow charm necklace

Family Loop Necklace

INSTORE Design Awards 2023

Third Place | Personalized Jewelry

“Family jewelry is a major component of the personalization trend. For this style, I wanted to create something with maximum versatility and a sleek, modern look. This loop can be slipped onto an existing charm cluster for an eclectic look or worn simply on its own as a hardware-inspired pendent. You can even set the stones in whatever pattern you like!” -Austin Zarobell, Product Design & Development

INSTORE Design Awards 2023

Second Place | Engagement & Wedding

“This piece is the perfect convergence of two rising trends: men’s engagement rings and lab-grown diamonds. Being able to offer a more masculine solitaire design with a bold, sleek metal aesthetic has been a goal for us as we try to address the needs of our customers.” -Brittney Garrett, Bridal Product Management

Emerald Men’s Ring Mounting

JCK Jeweler’s Choice Awards 2023
