Before you head out to enjoy the last bits of summer, we’re taking you to a jewelry event on Amelia Island in Florida and to a new boutique on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy. Plus: Labor Day’s coming up—we found the perfect diversion for when you’re sitting in traffic and a host of ideas if the picnic’s at your place.
2018 Prime Jewelry Group Event: August 26–28
A trip to Florida at the end of August sounds like it could be…well…really, really hot. But not in the air-conditioned comfort of the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, where the Prime Jewelry Group’s annual show will be taking place over the next few days in grand style. The intimate jewelry show’s exhibitors include many JCK editor favorites, including Frederic Sage, Yael Designs, and Shy Creation, the grand prize winner of JCK’s 2018 Jewelers’ Choice Awards.
Now Open: Temple St. Clair Firenze
Traveling abroad? If you’re Italy-bound (or planning a little holiday before or after Vicenza Oro), check out Temple St. Clair’s newly opened boutique on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. The shop is a jewel box done in blue and celadon green to highlight a spectacular view of the Arno River framed by Tuscan hills. Read our coverage of Temple St. Clair Firenze to see examples of the jewels on offer there.
