When it comes to covering Fine, Precious, and High Jewelry; nobody does it quite like Town & Country.  The stately publication – now in its third century of reporting on and editorializing on artistry and craftsmanship (not to mention the dazzling jewels created as a result) – enjoys the added prestige of having as its Editor in Chief and Executive Style Director, the esteemed Stellene Volandes, who’s really got the skinny on that about which she speaks (as does her learned Fashion Market & Accessories Editor, Will Kahn).

So, when they were held last month, at The Standard, High Line (in New York’s Meatpacking District), upon whom did Stellene and Will – along with their rarified panel of designers, collectors, editors, influencers, aficionados, and champions – bestow the top honors, in each of the 12 categories at the second annual T&C Jewelry Awards

Read, below; and make sure to check-out those categories marked with an asterisk (*) in the slideshow, above.  Images and captions: Town & Country.
