(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, is accepting entries for CASE Awards, its national jewelry design competition. The CASE Awards honor JA Members who exhibit creativity, artistry, style and excellence in jewelry design. The CASE Awards competition is open to all employees of JA Member retailers and suppliers. Employees of JA Member companies can enter through June 28, 2023.

“The CASE Awards celebrate the talent and expertise of independent Jewelers of America members. There is a lot of talented jewelry designers and bench jewelers across the country and we are proud to recognize their talents and extraordinary pieces of jewelry,” says Jewelers of America director of PR & Events Amanda Gizzi.

Winners will be awarded in ten categories. The categories are as follows: Retail Members: Jewelry up to $2,000 retail value; Supplier Members: Jewelry up to $2,000 retail value; Retail Members: Jewelry $2,001 to $5,000 retail value; Supplier Members: Jewelry $2,001 to $5,000 retail value; Retail Members: Jewelry $5,001 to $10,000 retail value; Supplier Members: Jewelry $5,001 to $10,000 retail value; Retail Members: Jewelry $10,001 to $50,000 retail value; and Supplier Members: Jewelry $10,001 to $50,000 retail value. Judges will also select two pieces as “Best in Show” – one for retailers, and one for suppliers. JA Members can enter a maximum of 4 pieces in the competition, one per category.

This year’s CASE Awards judging process will consist of two parts: a virtual pre-judging period for all submissions, and an in-person judging period for the finalists. Winners will be selected by a panel of experts who will evaluate all entries based on overall design, marketability, wearability and quality of manufacture. All winners will receive a customized CASE Awards trophy and national trade and consumer media exposure. Jewelers of America will promote all entrants through a social media and a digital marketing campaign adding extra exposure for the CASE Award entrants.

CASE Awards – sponsored by Synchrony and Chosen Payments (an Aurora company) – is open to staff of JA Member companies. Companies who are not yet JA Members can join before June 28th and receive one free CASE Awards entry.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
