One for the Future is an annual recognition award that seeks to acknowledge and celebrate emerging talent in the jewelry industry. The program accepts submissions from recent graduates, young entrepreneurs, and emerging professionals from diverse career paths such as teaching, marketing, education, design, and journalism. NYC Jewelry Week selects a group of honorees each year based on their demonstrated dedication to their craft, excellence in their field, and commitment to career growth.

The honorees of One for the Future benefit from improved networking opportunities and connections with other professionals in the industry. They also receive increased visibility through NYC Jewelry Week’s marketing channels, which includes the event NYCJW, Instagram posts and stories, Discover, USA Jewelry Tour, the newsletter and the NYC Jewelry Week website. Honorees also receive invitations to special events and presentations.
