Connecting Jewelers to Collectors

This longtime, award-winning industry writer, editor, speaker, and jewelry trend specialist is now taking jewelry journalism to the streets of New York City! Join us for a discussion and up-close look at Jennifer’s latest consumer-facing effort—talking to consumers about their collections!
