Omi Prive's Moonstone ring(Los Angeles, CA—February 14, 2018) Omi Privé’s moonstone & sapphire ring was named recipient of the 2018 Centurion Design Awards in the “Casual Fashion Jewelry over $5,000” category. The awards are presented annually to talented designers in multiple categories during the invitation-only Centurion Jewelry Show held at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.

Exhibitors of the Centurion Show display their most innovative and trend-inspiring jewelry designs during the event where esteemed retailer and media attendees are invited to vote for their favorite design in each category. Winners of the Design Awards were presented during Centurion’s Second Annual Triple Treat Dinner & Dancing Event sponsored by The Knot, where Niveet Nagpal, President and Head Designer of Omi Privé accepted the award for the moonstone ring.

“When I saw the moonstone with such a strong blue sheen it really spoke to me. I knew I wanted to create a design that really focused on framing the stone and pulling out the inner blue glow. I decided to frame it with royal blue sapphires set in black rhodium, like a blue moon in the night sky,” said Niveet. A 7.28 carat moonstone glows at the center of the award winning platinum ring. The moonstone is accented with 0.32 carats of round blue sapphires flanked by 0.21 carats of pear shaped diamonds. To view the winning design please visit omiprive.com.
