Jewelers of America (JA) has announced the winners of its 30th annual CASE Awards for jewelry design, recognizing retail and supply members whose pieces feature creativity, artistry, style and excellence.

This year, JA expanded the prizes to include categories specifically for both retailers and suppliers, it said last week. A panel of judges chose the honorees from a group of more than 100 applicants, evaluating overall design, marketability, practicality and wearability of the design, and manufacturing quality. Winners were announced live during the JA’s Virtual National Convention on May 28.

“The CASE Awards shine a spotlight on the custom design and craftsmanship found in the jewelry stores of Jewelers of America members nationwide,” said JA spokesperson Amanda Gizzi. “The entries are always diverse, and it showcases how jewelry can exhibit creativity and artistry in countless ways.”

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