(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelry History Series will once again take place in tandem with the Original Miami Beach Antique Show (OMBAS), January 3 – 4, 2020. The two days of programming features venerable jewelry experts and historians who will present on a variety of topics, such as How to Understand Jewelry Like a Historian, The Jewelry and Art of Frida Kahlo, and What’s Hot, What’s Not. The series also includes daily meals and opportunities for networking with fellow jewelry enthusiasts, as well as a guided tour of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show during set up on January 3rd, the day before the show officially opens to the public.

The Jewelry History Series is organized by Elyse Zorn Karlin and Gail Brett Levine, both of whom are world-renowned within the antiques jewelry community. “Each year, we plan our content based on trends that are generating the greatest amount of excitement and interest within the market, as well as on feedback that we receive from past years’ attendees,” explained Zorn Karlin. “One of the most gratifying components of organizing the Jewelry History Series each year is seeing the friendships that form among the attendees during our event, and how those relationships continue to thrive throughout the years.”

“We are always so excited to partner with the organizers of the Jewelry History Series in offering this incredible content to our attendees,” said Katrina Canady, Show Manager for U.S. Antique Shows. “Elyse and Gail, and each of the speakers that they line up, continue to elevate the experience for this series, which is why we see the same loyal attendees who come from near and far each year to attend this event.”

The Jewelry History Series, along with other education initiatives taking place throughout the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, will provide attendees with a foundation of knowledge that allows them to strategically shop the show floor in the curation of their personal collections. Attendees traditionally run the gamut, from those who simply have a passion for the art form of jewelry, to those whose careers are within the jewelry industry and want a deeper understanding of its history. A complete line-up of speakers can be found here and tickets for The Jewelry History Series can be purchased here.

The Jewelry History Series is taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center January 3rd and 4th. The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center January 4th-8th, 2020.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
