AGTA is delighted to announce another year of sponsorship from the Platinum Guild International (PGI) in the 2019 AGTA Spectrum Awards™. In its 23rd year as a sponsor, the PGI brings us the Platinum Honors™, which recognizes the outstanding use of platinum in colored gemstones and/or cultured pearl jewelry in Bridal Wear, Business/Day Wear, Classical, Evening Wear and Men’s Wear categories. Platinum Innovation Awards are an additional award given in the Bridal Wear, Classical and Business/Day Wear category, and are based on pricing criteria of the mounting. PGI also selects two overall winners in the “Best Use of Platinum Crown” (prong setting for gemstones) and the “Best Use of Platinum and Color.”
The platinum entries are judged by representatives from PGI. To qualify for these special awards, the metal in your entry must be 90% platinum (with exception of platinum crown). If your entry meets qualifications, select a category and check the Platinum Honors™ section on your entry form.
