11 - 08 - 2017 Tourmalines Take Top Prize at 2017 AGTA Spectrum Awards

by

A set of cool blue stones won top honors at this year’s AGTA Spectrum Awards. Totaling 53.56 cts., the tourmalines (pictured), by Mikola Kukharuk of Nomad’s, were named Best of Show by a panel of designers and retailers on Aug. 5 and Aug. 6. (In 2016, a trio of carved Paraiba won Best of Show honors, and in summer 2016 a suite of round brilliant Russian demantoid garnets took the prize.)

This year’s judges for the annual colored gemstone competition—which comprises finished jewelry and cut/carved gems—were Arun Bohra of Arunashi, Cathy Calhoun of Calhoun Jewelers, Sherris Cottier Shank of Gemscapes, Alishan Halebian of Alishan, and Holly Wesche of Wesche Jewelers.

The list of best-of and first-place winners appears below.

The 2017 AGTA Spectrum winners will be displayed at the 2018 AGTA GemFair Tucson (Jan. 30–Feb. 4, 2018) at the Tucson Convention Center. Recipients will be honored at the Spectrum Awards gala on Feb. 3. For more information on tickets, see agta.org.
