Winners and finalists of the Third Annual JCK Jewelers Choice Awards Design Competition are now live for viewing in JCK’s March 2010 issue and online here. Included in this year’s contest results are 40 winners and 83 finalists are named across 19 categories.
Hundreds of entries were submitted by designers and manufacturers the world over for retailers to vote on as the best of the year. Categories highlighted all areas of fine jewelry, including colored diamonds, platinum, gold, earrings, and more, from businesses engaged in the design and manufacture of jewelry for retail distribution, according to contest rules.
In addition to placement in JCK’s March issue, winning pieces also receive additional exposure in JCK’s Best of the Best Jewelers Choice Supplement in April, while the grand-prize-winning piece–a BELLARRI necklace, winner of the Colored Stone Jewelry Over $10,000 category–is featured on the cover of the March issue.
Nearly 12,000 retail jewelers voted for their favorite designs in this year’s competition.
