Education will be Prominent Feature of 2022 Original Miami Beach Antique Show

Conference, tours and pop-up education to provide added value to attendees.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — The 2022 Original Miami Beach Antique show, taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, January 20-23, will offer several opportunities for education to attendees of the event. Coupled with the knowledge and wisdom of U.S. Antique Show Dealers, these initiatives serve to arm prospective buyers with the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions.

The show’s popular Jewelry History Series (JHS) has been re-imagined for the 2022 event. Organized by Elyse Zorn Karlin and Gail Brett Levine, the JHS program will take place on Dealer Day, January 19. Attendees will be treated to lunch at the show and will be provided with written materials created by the program organizers. They will then be given a personalized tour where they will be introduced to specific dealers who will make presentations about specific eras and design houses. The ability to cross-reference information with demonstrative pieces of jewelry will be instrumental in solidifying their understanding.

On Friday, January 21, Marion Fasel of The Adventurine, a renowned jewelry historian, trend forecaster and curator of the American Museum of Natural History’s 2021 exhibition Beautiful Creatures: Jewelry Inspired By The Animal Kingdom, will guide jewelry enthusiasts to some of the greatest treasures in the show and highlight their historical significance. In these two tours, Marion will be joined by Lynn Yaeger, a contributing editor at Vogue and Town & Country, and a life-long jewelry collector. Lynn will bring her unique perspective to the tour taking guests to some of her favorite dealers as she shares stories about buying fine jewelry (even when you are on a budget), the mistakes she has made and the successes she has experienced in the marketplace.

2022 will also mark the inaugural year of the show’s exclusive partnership with Sotheby’s. In addition to offering their experts’ insight on Appraisal Day, which is taking place on Saturday, January 22 from 11am to 7pm, specialists from the renowned international auction house will be leading several “Pop-Up Education” sessions. Covering topics that range from “Auction Trends to Watch” to “A Collector’s Guide to Estate Planning,” these succinct sessions will serve to engage attendees with valuable and insightful information and practical applications.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer these compelling opportunities for education to attendees of our event,” noted Mark Lind, Group Show Director of U.S. Antique Shows. “This hands-on information will serve to enhance the experiences of both casual shoppers and dedicated collectors and help guide them as they meet with our dealers, who are among the most knowledgeable in the world in their areas of expertise.”




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
