HONOR COMES AS OMI GEMS PREPARES TO LAUNCH LUXURIOUS NEW JEWELRY LINE
(Los Angeles, CA)— March 1, 2012— Acclaimed jeweler Omi Gems has been named a finalist in the fifth annual Jewelers’ Choice Awards and will be featured in JCK’s “Best of the Best” supplement in May 2012, just in time for the 2012 JCK Las Vegas Show.
In its first submission to the prestigious awards, Omi Gems entered the category for “Platinum Jewelry – Over $10,000,” placing third with its handcrafted platinum ring featuring a stunning 30-carat, unheated, emerald-cut Ceylon sapphire accented with 160 ideal-cut diamond rounds, suggested retail $500,000.
As colored-gem aficionados know, it’s rare to find such a substantial stone that has not been heat-enhanced, and Omi Gems designers were obviously inspired by this remarkable sapphire to create a gorgeous ring around it. In the downtown Los Angeles workshop of Omi Gems, skilled craftspeople combine decades of experience and integrity to produce the finest handmade luxury jewelry from start to finish.
The esteemed JCK award comes on the heels of Omi Gems receiving two 2011 AGTA Spectrum Awards, and all of the accolades serve as the perfect kickoff for Omi Gems announcement of a new line of luxury gemstone jewelry called Omi Privé. The Privé collection luxuriously showcases each design’s gemstone by framing and highlighting the natural beauty of the stone. Select pieces of the collection will be available for an exclusive preview event at the SMART Jewelry Show in Chicago this spring, followed by the collection’s official launch at JCK Las Vegas in June.
