NATIONAL RETAILER DESIGN COMPETITION

Jewelers of America's Political Action Committee

A truly beautiful piece of jewelry combines nature’s most splendid handiwork with the vision and artistic creativity of the designer and the skill and execution of the fabricating jeweler. Jewelers of America’s national retailer design competition – The CASE Awards – honors JA Members who create jewelry pieces with the highest levels of creativity, artistry, skills and excellence in quality and style.

Jewelers of America held its annual national retailer design competition, the CASE Awards, at the JA New York Winter Show, January 18-20, 2015. To be recognized with a CASE Award, Jewelers of America members must express their individuality and craft through the design and manufacture of one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. The pieces below won the 2015 CASE Awards, determined by a panel of industry experts. The Buyer’s Choice was selected by the votes of attendees at the JA New York Winter Show.
