A Toast to Our Gems

Once a year we gather together to celebrate the achievements of our colleagues and friends, and the majestic industry we’re a part of. The 2017 GEM Awards Nominees have been announced, and we’re thrilled for those being duly recognized.

The nominees for the Jewelry Design category are Arun Bohra of Arunashi, Suzanne Kalan of Suzanne Kalan, and Lucia Silvestri from Bulgari. The Marketing & Communication Gem Award nominees are Hearts On Fire, Kay Jewelers, and Monica Rich Kosann. The nominees for the GEM award for Media Excellence are Amanda Alagem from Harper’s Bazaar, Grace Fuller from W Magazine, and Stephen Watson from Hearst Digital Media. And the nominees for the GEM award for Watch Excellence are A. Lange & Sohne, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Patek Philippe

Lastly, we must applaud the honoree of the evening, Jim Rosenheim, Chairman of Tiny Jewel Box. Since age 12, Mr. Rosenheim has had a vision for the future and growth of his family-run business. His efforts to support new and emerging designers from all over the world has made his shop much more than a jewelry store, but rather, a legendary establishment. The recent expansion of this Washington, DC institution not only belies its name, but has further bolstered global awareness of its carefully curated collection of high-end timepieces and collectible jewelry.

We look forward to celebrating Mr. Rosenheim along with all of the nominees, and continuing the tradition of supporting and recognizing one another’s greatest accomplishments. To purchase tickets to join us at this celebratory event, click here.
