The color of jewelry is a major component of its attraction (of course) but the American Gem Trade Association took it a step further and voted for the most amazing colorful jewelry in the world. Simply amazing pieces.
The AGTA Spectrum Awards is considered by many to be the most respected and prestigious creative awards for the jewelry design industry. Launched in 1984 by the American Gem Trade Association, it honors, recognizes and promotes designers whose work uses natural colored gemstones and cultured pearls in fine jewelry design. The international competition serves as the benchmark for jewelry designers striving to gain recognition for their work. In addition, it is one of things the jewelry industry uses to establish trends through the use of color and materials.
The AGTA recently announced the 2014 winners of the competition, held in New York, and according to Douglas K. Hucker, CEO of the AGTA, the 500 or designers who participated stretched the boundaries in what can be achieved in jewelry design with colored gems and pearls.
