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.
