Omi Gems Debuts Omi Privé Collection in Prestige Promenade at JCK


(Los Angeles, CA)— JCK’s Prestige Promenade was bustling with buyers and media as Omi Gems debuted their new jewelry collection, Omi Privé, at JCK Las Vegas 2012. The excitement over the handcrafted designs caused quite a sensation, earning Omi Privé a Buyer’s Choice Platinum Innovation Award.

Close relationships with industry partners like Platinum Guild International (PGI) and JCK led to Omi Gems being invited to premiere its highly anticipated Omi Privé line, a collection of custom creations highlighting the natural beauty of colored gemstones, in the coveted Prestige Promenade at JCK Las Vegas.

Omi Privé is the first ever jewelry company invited to launch a brand at Prestige Promenade. The unveiling caused such a sensation among the voting retailers that Omi Privé took home the Third Annual Platinum Innovation Award for Buyer’s Choice in the Platinum Wedding Band category for its platinum diamond and sapphire eternity band.

“We were excited and honored to make our international debut at Prestige Promenade alongside some of the finest jewelry companies in the industry,” commented Niveet Nagpal, Vice President of Omi Privé. “Prestige Promenade was the perfect venue to introduce the award-winning Omi Privé collection in a relaxing atmosphere with the finest retailers from around the world.”

Reflecting not only Omi Gems’ dedication to innovative platinum designs but its passion for the colored stone industry, the award followed appearances in the JCK Fashion Show on Friday and Saturday and a feature in the first-day JCK Show Daily, which drove attendees to Omi Gems’ platinum destination in Prestige Promenade. In addition, via its partnership with the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA), Omi Gems donated a membership to AGTA in a silent auction to benefit Jewelers for Children.

In the first day of the JCK Fashion Show Omi Privé sapphire and diamond suite was featured on the runway.

Saturday's Fashion Show featured Omi Privé's 20.02 carat unheated pink sapphire ring and rose-cut sapphire and diamond necklace.

Omi Privé showcases extraordinary gemstones in settings that frame and highlight various rare and magnificent colored stones. As a trusted family-owned gemstone authority, Omi Gems continues to serve its clients with fine quality loose gemstones while offering retailers this fabulous new line of luxury jewelry in all the myriad colors that gemstones can offer.
