35th Annual Jewelry Camp to Take Place in July

The 35th annual Antique Jewelry & Art Conference—a.k.a. Jewelry Camp—will take place July 27–29 at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel in White Plains, N.Y.

The event will be hosted by Jewelry Camp directors Edward and Sandy Lewand, and will include speakers such as Leigh Keno of Keno Auctions, Richard Drucker of Gemworld International, and Ruth Peltason, author of Living Jewels: Masterpieces of Nature.

“With more estate jewelry coming out of the vault and going to dealers and the retail jeweler, there is no better time to learn more about the antique and estate jewelry market,” said Edward Lewand in a statement. “And there is no better place to do it than at Jewelry Camp.”

Jewelry Camp comprises three days of lectures, breakout groups, and networking events. Participants have opportunities to meet and learn from top experts in buying, selling, appraising, and collecting.

This year’s event will also feature speakers:

  • Donna Bilak, a 19th- and early 20th-century jewelry historian
  • Jan Krulik-Belin, education director for the Phoenix Museum of Art
  • Roy Rover of Roy Rover Antiques.
