In 2018, LUXURY will introduce an exciting, new, and completely unique Awards program. Created to honor the jewelry designers and manufacturers that exemplify innovation, originality, and excellence in craftsmanship, winners of the awards will be partnered with one of our leading retailers for a special trunk show opportunity.
In addition to an exclusive trunk show in partnership with one of the best jewelry retailers the industry has to offer, winners will also receive post-event coverage in JCK Magazine, JCK Online, and in social media. Prizes sound good? They’re better than good!
Entering is simple: Select a piece of jewelry you’re most proud of—you can submit up to two pieces in two different categories, in fact. Categories for submission include bridal; finished colored gemstones; finished diamond jewelry (non-bridal); design; high-end fashion; and LUXURY debut. For each submission, it is asked that entrants include images of their product(s), along with answers to a few questions about the jewelry.
Winners will be decided by top retail stores and editors selected by JCK. After selecting their top three entries each, judges will visit the pieces on-site at the LUXURY show, allowing an in-person product visit before final decisions are made.
Once a final decision is made, the winners will be announced! Essentially, each retailer has selected the piece they feel is the best fit for their store, and will award that winner by hosting a trunk show. That’s quite the vote of confidence in your designs!
Final winners can expect to be announced on Thursday, May 31 at the LUXURY breakfast, which will be held in the level 3 South Seas ballroom at 8:30 a.m., at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
