Wonder Gems: The 2007 AGTA Spectrum Awards


Gems in all the colors of the rainbow. Gems in all shapes and sizes. Gems glowing with an inner fire all their own. Jewelry designers and lapidary artists from across the country were in top form for the annual Spectrum Awards and Cutting Edge competitions. The American Gem Trade Association's prestigious contests drew over 500 jewelry and gemstone submissions vying for the top prizes. The winning designs showcase beautiful gems that are sure to inspire colorful trends throughout the year.

The 2007 Spectrum awards will be presented during the AGTA GemFair, January 31 to February 5, 2007, at the Tucson Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona. Winning entries will be displayed during the show and recipients will be recognized at the AGTA dinner dance reception and awards gala on February 3.
