The Jaxson Bleu Ring

Uneek Jewelry’s founder and designer, Benjamin Javaheri continues his remarkable winning streak as INSTORE Design Awards recognizes his artistry and creativity with four new accolades.

The new awards round up the 21st Industry Accolade for Uneek Jewelry. “I feel blessed! It’s quite an experience having the industry notice my work. It’s both encouraging and inspiring for all of us here at Uneek! This fuels our passion to continuously do more, push beyond limits and take on technical challenges to innovate and create aesthetically pleasing, heirloom-worthy jewelry pieces," says Javaheri.

The roster is top billed by the ring Benjamin calls “Le Pur Et Simple” which is a true beauty in its simple, uncomplicated and unpretentious details. It received first in the Engagement/Wedding Jewelry Over $5,000 Category. The engagement ring features a French-pave split shank, 18k white gold setting, with a 5-carat certified cushion-cut white diamond center from the company’s popular Signature Collection.

The Retailers’ Choice Award for the Colored Stone Over $10,000 Category goes to “The Rio Elbaite Necklace.” The 18k White Gold Pendant Necklace is a tribute to its Brazilian heritage for its Indicolite Tourmaline Center and the celebration that is, El Grande Brasil! A spectrum of greens and blues make the 9 carat center dance to its own tune, dazzled by the kite and shield-shaped diamonds.

And last but not the least, two awards are bestowed on “The Jaxson Bleu Ring” which garners both The Retailers’ Choice Award for Platinum Category and third in Platinum Jewelry Category. This one-of-a-kind sapphire and diamond platinum piece is a celebration ring too close to home, a design inspired by the birth of Benjamin’s first son. The ring features an 8 carat royal blue oval sapphire perched atop 4.54 cttw. oval diamond eternity band. The oval diamonds appear like floating ovals on the finger and by virtue of the buttercup setting, are comfortable and low profile.

See these award-winning pieces and other outstanding UNEEK designs on display at salon LUX1221 of the Luxury/JCK Shows, May 29- June 3.
