Magpies listen up, New York will host it’s very own jewellery week this November.
Bella Neyman, director of Reinstein/Ross gallery, and consultant JB Jones have come together in their joint love of sparkle to organize the first annual event.
Designed to appeal to jewellery professional and enthusiasts, the seven-day program will offer a platform for innovators, curators, retailers, and historians to share their knowledge and expertise through viewings and tours.
“Unlike a fair or a conference with everything happening under one roof, this is a cultural event across New York City. We are presenting the most public and the most personal art form that exists, and inviting people to take a closer look through numerous outlets. You can see notable examples in the museums’ collections, shop independent jewellers, or try your hand at soldering or casting at a makers’ space,” Jones told WWD.
One of the highlights will be a curator lead excursion of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit Jewellery: The Body Transformed.
Running from November 12 to 18, other participants include the Museum of Arts and Design, the 92nd Street Y Jewellery Center, Brooklyn Metal Works, and Tiffany & Co.
