Our fourth annual competition recognizes artistry and creativity in jewelry design.

While many jewelry designers are happy to do well within the established field of play, a rare few are moving the boundaries altogether. These are the creators we aim to honor with the INSTORE Design Awards.

This year, we received more than 170 entries in twenty five categories. In order to determine the best of the best, we recruited ten top retail judges to vote on their favorites in a “blind voting” process. We are also opening voting to retailers online to decide the “Retailer’s Choice” winner in each category.

And finally, as we have for the past three years, we’ll recognize an up-and-coming design studio that most embodies the inventive spirit so long encouraged by our former colleague Cindy Edelstein, who passed away in January 2016.

So read on, and thrill to the inventions of artists whose imagination simply cannot be contained by the bounds of the status quo.

Most importantly, don’t forget to place your votes for your favorite jewelry designs in each product category.
