Miami, FL—The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is thrilled to announce the complete schedule for their highly lauded Jewelry History Series. With panel discussions and lectures that cover topics such as what’s selling at auction, a visual guide to the periods of the Victorian era and costume jewelry during WWII, this two-day educational conference is taking place January 25th and the 26th at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
“Our Jewelry History Series is always an incredibly popular, sold-out event,” noted Katrina Canady, Show Manager for U.S. Antique Shows. “This important educational initiative is an extension of the education that takes place among our vendors and attendees on the show floor. While our show is obviously a shopping experience, our vendors are among the most knowledgeable in the world, and they are always thrilled to share their expertise with anyone who shows a curiosity and passion for the products they sell. Whether it’s vintage jewelry, collectable watches, or mid-century modern furniture, visitors to the Original Miami Beach Antique Show always walk away with a wealth of knowledge about the products they see at our vendor’s stands.”
In addition to the full educational immersion offered during the Jewelry History Series, the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, taking place January 26th to the 29th, is also delighted to welcome the return of Skinners Auctioneers and Appraisers. World-renowned experts in their fields will be on site on both Sunday, January 27 and Monday, January 28th from 11am to 3pm to provide free verbal valuations on any item of ticket holders’ choosing. These experts will offer their unbiased opinions on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Additional, interactive educational experiences will also be offered through expert-guided tours. On Sunday, January 27th jewelry author and historian, Beth Bernstein, will be conducting two jewelry tours. These tours will allow a select group of jewelry enthusiasts to accompany Beth throughout the show floor and become acquainted with a variety of vendors specializing in eras that span from Georgian to Art Deco. Toma Clark Haines, aka “The Antiques Diva,” will provide additional tours of antique furniture and collectables. The foundation of knowledge that the tour-goers receive is intended to help them in their future purchasing decisions and to guide them in building their personal collections.
The Jewelry History Series is taking place January 25th and 26th at The Miami Beach Convention Center. Ticket prices for one day are $200, and for two days are $350, and the ticket price includes breakfast, lunch and refreshments.
