The enthusiasm in the room when the winners and finalists of the 2024 Design Awards were announced June 2 at the COUTURE jewelry show reflected the strong sense of community that distinguishes COUTURE. An introductory video that played to a packed audience at the Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theater featured a number of designers hailing from across the globe, highlighting the event’s global footprint and calling out the months or even years of work that it takes each contender to create their pieces.

“I want to acknowledge all of the hard work, determination and perseverance it took each of our designers to get here tonight,” noted Gannon Brousseau, COUTURE Director and EVP, Emerald when he opened the show. “The submissions this year were absolutely amazing; you have outdone yourselves.”

He then went on to thank the panel of judges who selected the finalists and winners, which included Alexandra Lipin from Elysse Walker, Amy Lane from Bergdorf Goodman, jewelry curator and journalist, Archana Thani, Tracey Ellison, The Diamonds Girl and designer Marco Bicego. The Editors’ Choice award was determined by attending media, with People’s Choice narrowed down to three contenders before the audience voted live from the theater to establish the winner.

The first award of the evening, Best in Bridal, was presented to Vanessa Fernandez of Vanessa Fernandez Studio (below), who made her COUTURE debut this year.

Sorellina (above) took home the award for Best in Innovative with an 18k gold cassette pendant featuring diamonds encased in white sapphires and accented with a pencil-shaped charm with which to “rewind” or “fast forward” the cassette.
