Why Spectrum is so Spectacular!

Vice President, Omi Gems

AGTA Tucson is right around the corner, and it is a great opportunity for you to view the colorful 2013 AGTA Spectrum award-winning designs and loose gems in person! I encourage all designers who love color to enter in 2014.

The AGTA GemFair Tucson is a convenient place to acquire gemstones and suppliers for your 2014 Spectrum Awards design entries. Suppliers from all over the country are at your disposal during the show, providing an ideal opportunity to form relationships and partnerships.

Each year the Spectrum Awards challenges designers to get creative with colored gemstones and cultured pearls. Since its launch in 1984, the Spectrum Awards have set trends, increased visibility for designers, and inspired great innovation in the use of color and materials.

This year marked the largest number of entries (nearly 500) to date for the competition, which is always an amazing opportunity for recognition within the industry, as well as amongst consumers. The Spectrum Awards are always packed with media looking to cover the latest in fashion and color trends. AGTA also partners with celebrities, such as actress Morena Baccarin. Recently named “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World” by Esquire magazine,  she will promote the world of color and the Spectrum Awards.


Here I am with AGTA’s Douglas Hucker, Adam Graham and the most beautiful of the bunch, Morena Baccarin.

    Dear Mr. Nagpal,

    I just wanted to let you know that I love Omi Gems and all your jewelry designs.
    I have finally found exactly the design of the wedding band that I have envisioned.
    I have searched for so long for a ruby and diamond wedding band. I had found nothing until I saw your ruby and diamond eternity band. It is so beautiful and exactly what I have wanted!!!

  2. Niveet –
    This does spark my intrest into the spectrum award competition! I would love to see a photo essay of the past winners! I’m sure the changes in design and technique used to create not only the jewelry, but the gems themselves, would broaden the understanding of the way colored gemstones in jewelry have evolved since 1984.
    Keep up the wonderful work you are doing yourself, as a contributor to the evolution of colored gemstone jewelry.
