RAPAPORT... Jewelers of America (JA) has begun accepting entries for its annual retailer design competition, which will be held at the JA New York Spring Show from March 13 to 15 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

The CASE Awards honor retail members of the trade body whose design shows four traits that through their initials spell out the competition’s name: creativity, artistry, style and excellence.

JA will accept entry forms until February 19. First-place winners will receive a $500 cash prize and national media exposure, the organization said in a statement February 11. The awards are open to staff of JA retail member companies.

Four categories are open to applications: jewelry with up to $2,000 retail value; $2,001 to $5,000; $5,001 to $10,000; and over $10,000. A maximum of 15 entries will be accepted in each category. A panel of judges will evaluate the entries based on overall design, marketability, practicality or wearability and quality of manufacturing.

“The CASE Awards celebrate the talent and expertise of independent Jewelers of America members,” said David Bonaparte, chief executive officer of JA.
