Uneek Jewelry scooped up two-category winnings in the INSTORE Design Awards for Retailer’s Choice in The Colored Gemstone and The Engagement/Wedding Ring, and also bagged the 2018 Top Rock Award from WeddingWire at the recent Luxury/JCK Shows in Las Vegas.

These three recent awards have bestowed Benjamin his 15th industry accolade.

 

The winning piece for the Colored Gemstone Category is a one-of-a kind Platinum Sapphire and Diamond Ring which evokes the romantic and sensual curves of his Silhouette Collection.
Award for Engagement/Wedding Ring Category is captured by a bridal set from his newest and hottest Us Collection. The distinctive wedding set is in 14 Karat Rose Gold featuring baguette-cut diamonds on the matching bands with a round center stone.
The 2018 Top Rock Winner is also from the Us Collection.

The winning piece for the Colored Gemstone Category is a one-of-a kind Platinum Sapphire and Diamond Ring which evokes the romantic and sensual curves of his Silhouette Collection. It features a colossal eight-carat oval sapphire flanked by a quarter carat epaulete diamonds on a diamond studded Silhouette-inspired shank. The breathtaking ring embodies pure elegance. As Benjamin shares, “I wanted to create a simple but elegant design that shows off the center stone and compliments it with the beautiful epaulete sides, not taking away from the main stone, but adding a touch of WOW to it.”

Meanwhile, the Award for Engagement/Wedding Ring Category is captured by a bridal set from his newest and hottest Us Collection. The distinctive wedding set is in 14 karat rose gold, featuring baguette-cut diamonds on the matching bands with a round center stone. According to Benjamin, “The concept of this particular Us Collection Ring Set was a collaborative effort with Cortland Shopper, our VP of Sales. Our desire was to bring out something modern and edgy. The east-west setting of the baguettes was intentional; to capture and highlight its brilliance and to take a break from the ordinary halo ring. This bridal set, it’s definitely extraordinary, definitely Uneek.”

The 2018 Top Rock Winner is also from the Us Collection. It is a three-piece set which embodies the modern, adventurous, unique, daring and fashion forward bride. The concept lets the wearer express her individuality by customizing a combo of rings to represent each milestone or just because. As Benjamin puts it, “When designing this beautiful set from the Us Collection, I wanted to live up to the tradition of Uneek. It needed to be exceptional and extraordinary and just show that this collection is all about being Uneek. I wanted to let the individuality shine through by being able to customize your own ring and go beyond the norm of a two-piece set."

The rings are in 14 karat rose gold, featuring a band with crisscross motif of round-baguette diamonds and a matching band/engagement ring combo featuring diamond-shaped stations, each decked with a cluster of white round diamonds. This ring trio has about one carat of diamonds in total weight, excluding center.
