Happy 2022! While many of us are back to work this week, the events schedule isn’t likely to start up again until mid-January. In the meantime, cue up the latest jewelry podcasts, watch (or rewatch) webinars from NYC Jewelry Week, and set aside time to read a deeply researched tome about the jewels of the 20th century.
The Jewelry District, Episode 59 (ongoing)
In the latest episode of The Jewelry District, JCK editor-in-chief Victoria Gomelsky and news director Rob Bates make predictions for 2022 in a speculative conversation that touches on disparate topics including secondhand watch sales, deepfake video technology, AI, and the circular economy.
New Plumb Club Podcast: Ongoing
The Plumb Club dropped a new podcast in December. In “Don’t Leave Potential Sales on the Table,” Russ Whitehouse, director of sales operations for Wilkerson Express, a division of the transition and retirement sales specialist Wilkerson, shares anecdotes and tips that all store owners should heed if they don’t want to miss out on potential sales.
NYC Jewelry Week’s YouTube Channel
Catch up on all the events you might have missed during the fourth annual NYC Jewelry Week in November on the organization’s YouTube channel, which features daily livestreams, conversations with high-profile designers, virtual exhibitions, and panel discussions with the industry’s best and brightest.
Understanding Jewellery: The 20th Century by David Bennett and Daniela Mascetti
Published by ACC Art Books, Understanding Jewellery: The 20th Century is the latest book written by David Bennett and Daniela Mascetti, the former Sotheby’s jewelry executives who coauthored the original 1989 Understanding Jewellery, long considered a bible among jewelry lovers. The new volume covers the most distinguished designers of the 20th century—including Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Bulgari, and Tiffany & Co.—and is sure to be a reference for years to come.
