JCK Jewelry Agenda: Week Of Dec. 19


With the holiday sales season entering its final, and presumably busiest, week, jewelers have little to no time for events. Which explains why our agenda for the coming week is, for the first time in a long time, devoid of any event listings. Instead, we’ve got book and TV show recommendations that are perfect for anyone who wants to hunker down until the New Year. Happy holidays!


Diamonds By Assouline

Written by British Vogue’s fashion critic, Anders Christian Madsen, and published by Assouline in partnership with Only Natural Diamonds, this lavish coffee-table book chronicles our collective love affair with diamonds. From the mythical stones found in India’s Golconda region to the 128.54 ct. fancy yellow Tiffany & Co. diamond once worn by Audrey Hepburn to promote Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the anecdotes threaded throughout the book feature celebrities—including Maria Borges, Dua Lipa, and Gigi and Bella Hadid—and a selection of stellar photographs by some of the world’s leading shutterbugs. $95
