(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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
