New York — On the last day of September, Jewelers of America hosted its annual preview at the Press Lounge atop the Ink48 Hotel. Overlooking the rainy West Side, the presentation brightened the day with sparkly fine jewelry looks, including pieces from the Cultured Pearl Association of America, Platinum Guild International and Silver Promotion Services. The jewels were polished with a strikingly feminine aesthetic. Let’s relive the event with some of our favorite pieces:
