JA New York’s New Designer Gallery At a Glance

JA New York’s New Designer Gallery At a Glance

The upcoming JA New York Summer show will feature 10 emerging brands that are either exhibiting for the first time or are still new to the jewelry trade show circuit as part of the show’s New Designer Gallery.

Each brand will be eligible to win the Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year Award, which is voted on by show-goers and bestowed upon the brand that is most popular with the crowd.

While JA New York’s New Designer Gallery was featured in the JA New York spring show for the first time earlier this year (in the past, the gallery only took place at the summer show), the Mort Abelson award is still relegated to the summer edition only.

Last year, Alexis Kletjian took home the coveted honor, which has been bestowed upon a who’s who of contemporary design talent over the years.

Let’s meet this year’s contenders.
