Story by Trace Shelton

WINNING DESIGNS Nearly a thousand designers, retailers and editors were on hand for the 2013 Couture Design Awards at the Couture Show in Las Vegas. Eleven categories of jewelry and four categories of watches were awarded, as well as the Couture Human Spirit Award, which went to design legend David Yurman. Another highlight included London-based designer Tomasz Donocik — part of Stephen Webster's "Rock Vault" collection of designers — winning two categories (Diamonds Above $20,000 and Debuting At Couture).
