RAPAPORT... Jewelers of America picked the winners of its 16th annual GEM Awards, held on Friday in New York.

Irene Neuwirth of Irene Neuwirth Jewelry won in the jewelry-design category for her modern style using raw, unmanufactured gemstones, while Marion Fasel took home the prize for media excellence for online magazine TheAdventurine.com.

The retail-innovation award went to Moda Operandi, which lets consumers preorder styles that they see models wear on a runway before they are widely available. It also provides items from designers that it picks specifically to suit its customers. 

The lifetime-achievement award went to Sally Morrison, a jewelry marketing specialist who has worked with De Beers, the World Gold Council and Gemfields.

Will & Grace actress Debra Messing (pictured) received the jewelry-style award.

The event took place at Cipriani 42nd Street, a luxury venue in New York’s Midtown.
