NEW YORK — The soaring humidity last Sunday night didn’t dampen spirits at the annual Women’s Jewelry Association dinner gala.
Held every year in conjunction with JA New York, the event this year was especially meaningful for many of the attendees, since 2003 marks the 20th anniversary of the group’s founding. The event drew a crowd of more than 600 retailers, jewelers and industry executives to Pier 60 in Manhattan and included a cocktail reception, silent auction and awards ceremony.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
