The crisp autumn air is punctuated with foliage of fleeting fiery colors, and the Park Avenue Armory is gearing up for its next highly-anticipated event: the 26th Annual International Fine Art & Antiques Show. From October 17th to 23rd, Haughton International Fairs will host some of the world’s finest dealers in antiques, fine art and jewelry at the historic Seventh Regiment Armory.
With 68 international exhibitors, and twelve of those specializing in jewelry, this important annual show will attract an international gathering of serious collectors as the fair strictly vets every single item on display. As for the jewelry, important pieces abound this year from some of the most reputable dealers in the world. From Europe, Hancocks of London, Epoque Fine Jewels of Belgium and Véronique Bamps of Monaco have traveled across the Atlantic to share their sparkling wares, joining U.S. dealers such as A La Vieille Russie, Camilla Dietz Bergeron, James Robinson, Kentshire, and S.J. Shrubsole.
In addition to today’s preview of the highlights from the show’s elite cadre of antique jewelry dealers, I have teamed with jewelry connoisseur-scholar Clive Kandel to offer Jewels du Jour readers a special private tour of the best jewels at the show. Two tours, the first at 11:30am on Saturday and the second at 6pm on Tuesday, will take the first 50 readers of Jewels du Jour on a hands-on tour enhanced with the stories and significance of these important jewels shown at this prestigious fair.
This specially curated tour will bring to life the truly spectacular jewels whose histories are just as dazzling as the pieces themselves. To register for this exciting event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form below to register for the tour you’d like to attend. Please be aware that we can only accommodate 25 people per tour and the registration process will be first come, first serve.
