The New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show Attracts New Dealers
NEW YORK (May 14, 2015) – The New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will return to nation’s jewelry capital, New York City, this summer. U.S. Antique Shows, producer of the industry’s most anticipated events, will host the event on July 24-27, 2015.
Held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in the heart of Chelsea, the show gathers more than 100 of the most elite dealers for four days only. Highly sought after collections representing all eras of jewelry history will be on display.
“The New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show has consistently been one of the most successful events in our national show portfolio. With this accomplishment, our group has decided to expand the show, offering additional booths to our antique jewelry and watch dealers. Attendees will enjoy the increase in showcased merchandise and dealers will have the chance to purchase pieces from their industry peers who have not previously exhibited at the show. This improvement is a win-win for all!” says Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions vice president and U.S. Antique Shows general manager.
The New York show runs concurrently with the summer trade-only event, JA New York, held at the Javits Convention Center. Attendees registered for the JA New York Show will receive complimentary access to the New York Antiques Jewelry & Watch Show on Monday, July 27 at 9 a.m., two hours before the show opens to the public. A shuttle will be provided to transport attendees to and from both shows.
Dealers constantly rave that the show attracts the best and largest diversity of clients, therefore, an array of antique, vintage and estate jewelry pieces are always available to those that attend. Unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry featuring colored diamonds, a variety of gemstones, pearls, and much more fill the show floor. In addition, collections from notable brands, such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., David Webb, Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels, Patek Philippe, and more are popular among attendees.
Frank Kravitz of Jeral Jewelers, Inc. loves to network with dealers at the New York show. “It’s an enjoyable event to participate in because I get the opportunity to interact with dealers that I’ve worked with on the tradeshow circuit for decades. It feels like a small family reunion in one of the best cities in the country.”
In 2014, the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show achieved the highest attendance in recorded U.S. Antique Shows history. The show floor was filled with serious buyers and many of the clientele were first time attendees to the show. Plus, several dealers commented on the strength of the American jewelry market.
Show times for this year’s event are Friday, July 24 from 1-7 p.m., Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Monday, July 27 from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. Admission is $20 for all four days.
