A surprisingly svelte Jennifer Hudson honored jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane, at one of the industry’s hottest tickets: JIC’s Gem Awards.
Dream Girl, Jennifer Hudson, strutted her stuff at the Ninth Annual Gem Awards on Friday, January 7th – an event hosted by the
Jewelry Information Center (JIC), the consumer education arm of Jewelers of America.
Walking arm in arm with honoree, Neil Lane, the glamorous Hudson sparkled in his earrings (of course) and a black Alexander McQueen sheath paired with Christian Louboutin heels.
JIC’s GEM Awards recognizes the outstanding achievements of individuals and
companies whose work amplifies JIC’s mission: to raise the visibility and status
of fine jewelry and watches.
The JIC also honored Dr. Jeffrey E. Post, Curator of the U.S. National Gem and Mineral Collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, with the GEM Award for Lifetime Achievement; Breitling received the GEM Award for Corporate Communications; Marie Claire magazine was honored for Journalistic Excellence; and finally – Neil Lane received the GEM Award for Jewelry Style.
