J. Douglas Jewelers announces the great honor that Gary Schick, jewelry designer for J. Douglas Jewelers has won 1st place in the annual AGTA Spectrum Awards™ competition in the Division II category, which represents jewelry in the retail price range between $5,001 – $10,000. Gary’s winning piece, a blue, yellow and pink rainbow sapphire ring set with fifty-four sapphires totaling 3.92 carats, set in eighteen karat yellow gold was inspired by pathways and bridges. Gary believes the use of multiple gemstones makes the piece more wearable. “By incorporating a group of color vs one color makes the piece more wearable; it goes with everything.”
The AGTA Spectrum Awards™ is an annual worldwide jewelry design competition featuring natural colored gemstones & cultured pearls. Judges used several criteria during the judging process to make the winning selections: beauty, originality, wearability, quality of workmanship and gemstones, salability and effective use of materials. Judges and designers agree that a designer must be confident in the statement they are making with a piece when they enter a competition. In the case of the Spectrum Awards, the pieces are more complex; there are layers of color, texture and surprises, such as the movement of a stone or the finishing on the back – something extra that is added.
