Manufacturing Honors Evening Wear Category
Two Tariq Riaz rings have been recognized in 2020 American Gem Traders Association Spectrum Awards. The annual competition recognizes the most perfect examples of the jeweler’s art in the world of colored gemstones and cultured pearls.
His Infinity Band was awarded manufacturing honors in the evening wear category, recognizing its AbrazoFIT™ fit mechanism, which seamlessly adjusts to fit US sizes 6-10, guaranteeing the wearer a comfortable fit for life. The 18K rose and white gold ring contains a full circle of pink rhodolite garnets.
The Chameleon ring was awarded third place in the Evening Wear category. It features a mechanism that switches the center gem from a red garnet to a green peridot as the wearer waves her hand.
Tariq Riaz sees the awards as evidence that judges were looking for more than beauty from the jewels, they recognized this year. “Both these rings employ innovative AbrazoFIT™ mechanisms, which make them move in ways that make them more comfortable — and more delightful. “I’m excited to see these innovations are attracting interest, I love working on them!”
