JCK Jewelry Agenda: Week of Sept. 24


Most of the jewelry action is happening across the pond this week, so if you’re in London or Paris (where Fashion Week kicks off in that city on Sept. 25), plan accordingly. But no FOMO stateside—well, okay, maybe a smidge of it—as you can cue up a podcast, take in a webinar, bid at auction, or attend a unique selling exhibition at Sotheby’s New York.


For the Boys: A Jewelry Exhibition at Sotheby’s New York: Through Oct. 5 (in person)

It’s a showcase of antique and vintage designs from the distinguished houses of Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Verdura, David Webb, and more, plus modern and contemporary pieces from Chrome Hearts, NN by Nghi, Johnny Nelson, David Yurman, and Shaun Leane.
