New York—When longtime jewelry-loving magazine editor Stellene Volandes nabbed the top spot at Town & Country, jewelry lovers knew they were in for a treat.

Volandes didn't disappoint when a little over a year into her editor-in-chief role, the magazine announced the creation of the Town & Country Jewelry Awards.

In 2018, the inaugural event was held at Hearst Tower, but late last month, the awards’ second iteration took on a more spirited air, setting up shop at The Standard, High Line Hotel in New York City’s Meatpacking District.

Shining even brighter than the jewel-bedecked celebrities in attendance, like Kelly Ripa, were the honored talent, representing both new and established design voices.

Here were the night’s big winners, chosen by Town & Country editors and a panel of jewelry aficionados, as announced online and in Town & Country’s February issue.
