Alessio Boschi, Head Designer at AUTORE, accepts the Couture Design Award for the Pearl Category. He accepted the award with Justin Schwarz, Executive Sales Director. They really enjoy this award which they've won for the past few years. Well done gentlemen!
Erica Courtney was sooooooo surprised when she won for Best Timepiece! Her thank you was a tribute to her mother, very touching.
Sofia Kamen of Kamofie Designs won for Best Bridal design — cool and hip just like the designer.
Heather Moore, center in coral, surrounded by her sales team accepts the award for Best in Gold for a cuff bracelet that has a touching story.

The story is quite moving and the jewel is a fitting tribute.
