OverviewWhy do we collect and how do we do it? What makes a piece worth owning? Is it its history or provenance or simply that gut feeling? How do jewelry houses decide which pieces from their archive need to be resurrected and how does it affect their value on the secondary market? Angelina Chen, Senior Vice President of Christie's Jewelry department, moderates a panel discussion on collecting coinciding with the inaugural New York City Jewelry Week.
Spend the evening with three jewelry aficionados who build collections with different goals in mind, whether its Tom Heyman looking to acquire historically significant pieces by Oscar Heyman that date back to the early part of the 20th century, or Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos for her clients with a discerning eye, or jewelry consultant and appraiser Dianne Batista who works with auction houses and private clients to establish the value of their jewels.
The panel discussion will take place on November 15 at Christie’s Education New York, 1230 Avenue of the Americas. Please register here to attend.
