About the AGTA Spectrum Awards™
Since 1984, the AGTA Spectrum Awards™ has been the most respected creative competition of the colored gemstone and cultured pearl industry. Each year, a panel of experts honors designers and lapidaries whose work uses natural colored gemstones and cultured pearls in fine jewelry designs. Every entry is evaluated with a meticulous eye for innovation, quality, craftsmanship, and beauty.
Winners of the AGTA Spectrum Awards™ gain international prestige, raise the profile of designer jewelry, and inspire innovation in the use of colored gemstones and cultured pearls. Designers and lapidaries whose work receives an AGTA Spectrum Award™ garner worldwide exposure in trade journals, consumer press, and are honored at the AGTA GemFair Tucson™ in an exclusive showcase and the AGTA Spectrum Awards™ Gala.
