Etienne Perret's Colored Diamond Designs Shine In Niche Jewelry Award Finals


Etienne may be a regular on the international jewelry awards circuit, but that doesn't leave him any less proud of his latest recognition--Earning a finals spot in two different divisions of the prestigious NICHE Awards!

Sponsored by NICHE magazine, the NICHE Awards program began in 1989 to celebrate excellence and innovation in American and Canadian fine craft. Artists are recognized in professional and student divisions. The competition received a total of 267 entries spread over eight jewelry categories.

Etienne's dramatic orange colored diamond black Gem Ceramic Maxine wedding/engagement ring combo is one of only four finalists in the Wedding Jewelry category.

Equally exciting is Etienne's colored diamond Gem Ceramic Rainbow Bangle bracelet, that made it into the finals in the Fine Jewelry division, and is sure to face some tight competition amidst the four other top entries, including Erik Stewart's Fluted platinum diamond and sapphire ring.

The winners will be announced at the NICHE Awards night in February. Stay tuned to find out if Etienne's designs beat out the competition!
