Twelve jewelry companies won Centurion Design Awards at last week’s Centurion Show in Scottsdale, Arizona. Retailers attending the show voted on jewelry pieces from twelve categories. The entries–from jewelry companies presenting at Centurion–were shown anonymously. So winners were chosen without identifying the creators of each entry.
The awards were presented at the show’s gala dinner on Monday, February 3, which was sponsered by Veranda magazine. The competition was sponsored by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Co., Chippenhook, and Exhibit Management Corp.
