In a scant seven years, The New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show has quickly “established itself as a must-attend event in the heart of Chelsea” according to Dan Darby, US Antiques Shows group show director. Returning to the chic Metropolitan Pavilion, July 25-28, the Show gathers 100 of the industry’s top dealers, including the Manhattan Art & Antique Center’s Melody Rodgers, Gallery 47, and Botier Inc., to showcase the most stunning jewelry and watch collections from the Renaissance to the Modern Era.

The New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show is known for attracting attendees as diverse as the remarkable pieces on display, including “antique jewelry aficionados, seasoned collectors, fashion trendsetters, well-known celebrities, and socialites.” For this reason, dealers are known to bring a wide range of inventory so that antique jewelry, such as Melody Rodger’s romantic pieces below, is often showcased beside modern pieces.
