Summer Celebrations

It’s that time again! As the summer heat hits its peak, we are thrilled to have so many indoor activities lined up for next week when Jewelry Market Week hits NYC!

Market Week kicks off with the opening of the JA New York Summer Show on Sunday, July 23rd at the Javits Center. We are excited to check out the New Designer Gallery as it marks its 40th Anniversary, and see several of our COUTURE brands including Gumuchian, Kabana, Alex Sepkus, ANZIE, Goshwara, Rene Escobar, Sutra, and Jill Maurer.

The events continue Monday, July 24th when GIA joins JA New York in the Javits Center with their Jewelry Career Fair. This includes panels, recruitment, and career coaching sessions (more information about this event can be found here).

We look forward to joining our community later that evening at WJA’s Awards for Excellence to celebrate the 2017 Hall of Fame Honorees including Cecilia Gardner for the Lifetime Achievement Award, Michael Pollak for the Ben Kaiser Award, and Day’s Jewelers for the Corporate Award. We’d like to congratulate all nominees in each of the categories as well; we admire your talent, work ethic, and dedication to the industry.  To purchase tickets for this event you can click here.

We end the festivities with AGS’ Circle of Distinction Awards Dinner on Tuesday, July 25th. We are incredibly proud of the three honorees: Myriam Gumuchian of Gumuchian, Dr. James Shigley of GIA, and Peter Engel of Fred Meyer Jewelers. 

We hope to see all of you next week!
