Eye Catching Jewelry from the 2012 AGTA Spectrum Awards

A carved jade fish accented with fire opals by Manya & Roumen. It tied for first place among editors who attended the Spectrum Awards editor's event.

There’s been a lot of talk about the winners of the AGTA Spectrum Awards, which were named Oct. 24. And all of it is well deserved. However, there were hundreds of other creative, innovative and otherwise beautiful pieces on display during the media review of the entries on the same day. Here are just a few that caught my eye:
