The Industry Chooses the Best of the Best The prestigious Jewelers’ Choice Awards, created by JCK in 2008, remains true to its original premise: to encourage designers to create innovative, yet salable, pieces of jewelry and to give retailers the chance to select their favorites. Since its inception, this national competition’s winning designs have set the industry standard for the best work from the most creative designers.

or an entry fee of $550, companies were invited to submit their newest designs, which would receive print and online exposure as well as the opportunity to become a JCK Jewelers’ Choice Award winner. Voting was open from Nov. 5, 2015, through Jan. 5, 2016, to retailers who logged on to jewelerschoiceawards.com to view the selection of entries in the various product categories. “We’re always excited by the amazing number of new companies participating, many of which placed in this year’s awards,” says JCK publisher Mark Smelzer. Included in this group are Atelier Gigi, Baharra Design House, Deeta Thakural, Geoffrey Scott, JC Blackburn Inc., Laurence Bruyninckx, Leo Schachter & Co., little h, Majolie Collections, Marahlago, Merida Diamonds, Naomi Sarna Designs, Tamara Comolli Fine Jewelry Collection, Tara Pearls, and Terry Snider Jewelry, to name a few.

We’re excited to congratulate the following for placing in four-plus categories each: Belle Étoile, Ed Levin Jewelry, Gabriel & Co., little h, Maui Divers Jewelry, Parlé Jewelry Designs, Stuller, and Yael Designs. Jewelers’ Choice prizes were awarded in 20 categories, including diamonds, colored gemstones, colored diamonds, lab-grown diamonds and/or gemstone jewelry, pearls, tanzanite, gold, silver, platinum, mixed metals, men’s, personalized, fashion/bridge, contemporary metals, and price point, each divided into price levels. Merchandise divisions included bridal, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and rings. This year the colored stone jewelry category received the most entries, followed closely by bridal.

his year’s grand prize winner is Rahaminov for their entry in the Colored Diamond Jewelry, Over $10,000 category. Their award-winning ring features a 2.32 ct. fancy pink oval diamond surrounded by 0.79 ct. t.w. half-halos and trapezoid diamonds in platinum and 18k rose gold. “Being honored with a first place in the Jewelers’ Choice Awards and the overall grand prize winner of the competition for our ‘Rosé Ring’ highlights a three-generation commitment to bringing out the raw beauty of every diamond,” says Tamara Rahaminov Goldfiner. “We believe that the diamond is as rare as the woman who wears it, a sentiment that stems from the fact that this piece is designed for women by women.”

We also asked our five JCK editors to weigh in on their favorites (see “JCA 5 Faves” on the following pages). They agreed it was a tough choice among so many great designs but came through with some interesting selections along with what they liked about each piece.

2016 EDITORS’ PICKS

For the third year in a row, we asked the JCK editorial team to cast their (hypothetical) votes in the Jewelers’ Choice Awards. See which pieces—among all the entries—they chose as their favorites and why they love them.

8

Melissa Rose Bernardo, managing editor

Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief

Parlé Jewelry Designs (Best Ring Design, $2,500–$10,000)

Laurence Bruyninckx (Best Earring Design, Over $10,000)

I’m determined to buy myself an opal piece this year. If my budget were, say, $10,000 (sadly, it’s much lower), I’d head straight to Parlé for this 18k yellow gold design. The east-west-set Australian boulder opals are so eye-catching and the two lines of diamond accents so delicate. Sure, the two-finger style might hinder my typing speed, but I’d gladly sacrifice a few wpm for this beaming beauty.

If the parade of big and bold earrings we saw on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week is any indication, the statement earring trend is here to stay, and these swingy glitter-bombs from Antwerp, Belgium–based Laurence Bruyninckx are how I’d like to make my dazzling declaration. The best part: They offer two looks in one. Those sexy diamond-dusted slivers are detachable!

THE BEST OF THE BEST 2016


Jennifer Heebner, senior editor TAMARA COMOLLI Fine Jewelry Collection (Diamond Jewelry, Over $10,000) I wish all of my darkest days were due to this black rhodium-over-gold bracelet from German designer Tamara Comolli! The wide piece incorporates her signature paisley motif with colorless diamonds—just enough sparkle to balance out the somber metal shade. The artist says the design is inspired by estate and Art Deco jewels, but its name is Snowflake— another testament to how cool the style is.

Emili Vesilind, senior editor Majolie Collections (Colored Stone Jewelry, $2,500 & Under) I love the simplicity of this ring, which sets a stunning baguette-cut tourmaline into a classic design bordered with pavé diamonds. The twotoned gemstone lends some bohemian flair to the look—and the thinness of the double bands feels ultra-elegant. The total design really embodies that casual-luxe aesthetic that’s so very wearable for modern women.

Brittany Siminitz, audience engagement manager Bapalal Keshavlal (Best Bracelet Design, Over $10,000) Bapalal Keshavlal proves that dainty details can pack a punch with this fluid cuff. Rosy lace collides with rose-cut diamonds amid scalloped edges and curved lines, and a contrasting pair of rubies anchor the piece. As a Gemini, I can certainly appreciate a design with multiple personalities—and this one displays each one with artful ease
