Jewelers of America (JA) has unveiled the winners of its 33rd annual CASE Awards for jewelry design, recognizing retail and supply members whose pieces exhibit creativity, artistry, style and excellence in jewelry design.

A panel of judges selected honorees out of more than 150 entries in eight categories based on overall design, marketability, originality and quality of manufacture, JA said last week. One retailer and a supplier entry were also named Best in Show.

“Jewelers of America’s CASE Awards design competition highlights the fine craftsmanship, creativity, and talent of Jewelers of America member designers and bench jewelers,” said JA spokesperson Amanda Gizzi. “The winners in each category are incredible examples of what consumers can expect to find at their local Jewelers of America member store.”

Winners receive a customized CASE Award trophy and national and local media coverage.
