JCK Jewelry Agenda: Week Of Nov. 27


The post-Thanksgiving comedown continues. With all eyes in the jewelry industry in the final stretch of the 2022 holiday season, the events schedule this week is fairly quiet, save for two Phillips auctions and a Gem X event in Los Angeles. Enjoy the downtime!


Gem X Event With Nigel O’Reilly at Sotheby’s Beverly Hills: Dec. 1, 6–8 p.m. PT

Nigel OReilly De Ville pearl pink gold ring

Gem X is hosting a private viewing event at Sotheby’s Beverly Hills gallery to meet the Irish goldsmith Nigel O’Reilly and admire his high jewelry collection. The 29 pieces on display will be exhibited through Dec. 16 and are available for immediate purchase via Sotheby’s Marketplace. RSVP is required for security purposes. See link for details.
