NYCJW: When the Past Is the Future: How Yesterday’s Styles, Techniques, and Designs Influence Our Jewels

November 19, 2019 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

NYC Jewelry Week logoThe world has changed radically in the past 20 years, affecting every aspect of our lives. Jewelry making, marketing, and styling have been upended and reimagined, yet the raw human desire for the jewel as adornment remains. How do we integrate the valuable wisdom and life experiences of the past with the energy and promise of the future?

Join the American Society of Jewelry Historians with experts from differing generations and skill sets to discuss these challenges.


Jill Newman, jewelry expert and editor, Town & Country Magazine Contributing Editor for jewelry and watches

Lisa Linhardt, award-winning designer and founder of two retail stores – Linhardt Design (2008) and Linhaus (2018) which focus on sculptural fine jewelry that incorporates environmental and socially responsible practices in the supply chain as well as digital manufacturing.

Ben Janowski, founder of Janos Consultants, advised companies worldwide for the past 26 years on the strategic planning necessary to deal with the profound changes occurring across the entire value chain of the gem and jewelry industry.

Lee Siegelson, owner of Siegelson Inc, a third generation jewelry dealer whose curated eye collects unique and important jewels that bridge the gap between true art and fine jewelry.
