  • The Stories I Can Tell You: The Newark Museum Jewelry Collection
Amy Simon Hopwood

Newark Museum

  • Program Hall

Jewelry has many associations: personal, artistic, status, style, maker, materials, and process.  The jewelry of the Newark Museum collection tells all these stories and more.  The individual bracelets, necklaces, and pendants add up to tell the story of collecting, both for individuals and for the Museum.
  • 10:15 - 11:00
  • A Recycled Market in a Modern Age
Amanda Womack

Replacement, Ltd

  • Program Hall

Does Lady Gaga wearing the Tiffany diamond to the Oscars mean you should be buying more yellow diamonds for your customers? We explore cyclical estate jewelry trends based on changes in media, class structures, and social norms.
  • 11:15 - 12:00
  • Georg Jensen:  A Study of Scandinavian Design & Brand Identity
Bill Drucker

Drucker Antiques

  • Program Hall


Georg Jensen (1866-1935) is considered the driving force of Scandinavian modern silver.  Georg Jensen’s visionary approach to design and designers formed the ideals of 20th Century Modern Danish Designs in silver.  By examining the work of a few notable designers we will come to understand the factors that have led to Georg Jensen’s enduring success and legacy.

  • 01:00 - 01:45
  • I Owe It All To A German Torpedo!
Christopher Walling

Christopher Walling Jewelry

  • Program Hall

An unorthodox talk covering jewelry seen through the lens of Christopher’s own experiences rather that a more didactic approach.  Anecdotes covering 60+ years of travel to every museum with jewel collections and connecting with collectors around the globe, such as the late Lily Auchincloss.  From Honolulu to Istanbul – in fact, just about everywhere but South America and Antarctica.
  • 02:00 - 2:45
  • Made for America
Neil Marrs
  • Program Hall


A lively exploration of the range and development of American taste through the decades, both high and low, from the Art Deco masterpieces of Raymond C. Yard and the Kennedy White House to Vegas showgirls, crime bosses and Tiffany’s Super Bowl rings.

  • 03:15 - 04:00
  • Jewelry from a Historian’s Perspective
Sarah Davis

Siegelson

  • Program Hall

Lecture is on what it means to be a working jewelry historian and how I look at jewelry — featuring some of the greatest jewelry I have worked with from Siegelson, to the Aga Khan collection to Anna Hu book.
  • 04:15 - 05:00
  • War and What We Wore
Katherine Ward

The RealReal

  • Program Hall


Necessity may be the mother of invention, but war might just be its trainer. Throughout history, conflict has informed cultural standards and insisted on technological advancements. As a tangible expression of unspoken communal experience, jewelry often acts as a totem of a moment in time. From the eighteen hundreds to present day, this talk will explore the sociological and technological impact of war as reflected in the creation and design of jewelry.
