I love lists titled “The Best of the Best,” because it makes me think of the overeager West Point graduate in Men in Black who barks “Because we’re the best of the best of the best … SIR!”
I love “Best of the Best” lists even more when I’m part of them! I had just sighed, “Oh, I’m not in this,” over this JCK publication listing the winners and finalists of its 2015 Jewelers’ Choice Awards …
… and then I flipped a page and found myself in the “JCA 5 Faves, 2015 Editors’ Picks.” The magazine said, “For the second year in a row, we asked the JCK editorial team to cast their (hypothetical) votes in the Jewelers’ Choice Awards. See which pieces — among all the entries — they chose as their favorites and why they love them.
I’m looking forward to seeing Brittany and the rest of my Vegas Gems gang at the JCK jewelry trade show in Las Vegas this week. I’m not exhibiting, because I have a bad habit of spending my entire potential show budget on things like my brand-new Dragon and Knight Maneater ring (you’ll be seeing that one soon and, yes, it was worth it). But I love to go and hang out with my jewelry-biz friends. If you’re there and see me wandering by, say hello!
