Here's What's Happening at the 1st Annual New York City Jewelry Week

A pair of jewelry and retail veterans, Bella Neyman and JB Jones, are organizing the first annual New York City Jewelry Week-seven days of around-the-city programming, running Nov 12-18, designed to promote New York City's jewelry industry, innovators, curators, retailers, and historians through educational and fashion-centric happenings Neyman, a longtime jewelry curator, came up with the idea for a Jewelry Week in NYC after years of traveling to jewelry weeks in Europe, including those held in Munich; Athens, Greece; and Barcelona, Spain.

New York City Jewelry Week will feature exhibitions, lectures, workshops, studio tours, and a handful of collection presentations from established and emerging brands, individual jewelers, artists, and designers "Our whole mission is to engage general public with jewelry in the city," says Jones "For us that means [providing] opportunities to do things like visit a great retailer and learn about jewelry history and the manufacturing that's happening in the city through visits to artist studios and going behind-the-scenes at showrooms and museums" Its board of advisers includes Fern Mallis, creator of New York Fashion Week; Stellene Volandes, jewelry author and editor of Town & Country; Jonathan Wahl, director of the Jewelry Center at the 92nd St.
