The GEM Awards, taking place at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, honors the outstanding achievements of individuals or companies whose work raises the visibility and status of fine jewelry and watches. As the destination for all things watches and horology, visibility is something that Hodinkee knows a lot about.
