JIC announces GEM Awards date and new host

(NEW YORK) - On Friday, January 9, 2009 the Seventh Annual Jewelry Information Center GEM Awards gala will once again take place at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, its long-standing and elegant location in the heart of Manhattan. Adding to the excitement of the upcoming event’s evening, JIC is proud to announce that Ms. Samantha Harris will be the brand new host and master of ceremonies. Seen on prime time television and currently at the height of her career, Ms. Harris is most well known as the co-host with Tom Bergeron of ABC-TV’s prevailing variety series, “Dancing with the Stars.”

A renowned entertainment-news journalist, Samantha Harris joined E! Networks in January 2005 as a correspondent for “E! News.” In addition to writing, producing and reporting for “E! News,” she co-hosts the network’s live awards-show coverage. Samantha has also added “THS Investigates,” a spin-off of “The E! True Hollywood Story,” to her hosting duties.

“Samantha Harris is recognized for her elegance, poise and, of course, for heightening our industry’s awareness to consumers by wearing beautiful fine jewelry on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” said David Bouffard, JIC Board Chairman. “We are thrilled to have Samantha as our new host. She will bring a fresh vitality to the GEM Awards gala, making the evening even more magical.”

JIC launched the GEM Awards in 2003 to honor leaders in our industry and media who have helped promote the wearing of fine jewelry and watches to the consumer. The GEM Awards have become one of the premier events in the fine jewelry and watch industry thanks to the efforts of the JIC team and the financial support of the gala’s attending guests.
