The Jewelry Independent Summit Returns to NYC February 3rd

The Jewelry Independent Summit Returns to NYC February 3rd The Jewelry Independent Summit is thrilled to announce its third conference will return to New York City on Sunday February 3, 2019.

The Jewelry Independent Summit has gained global recognition in the jewelry industry for bridging the gap between “creativity and business” for modern jewelry designers. February’s event will serve as a curated crash-course in all things jewelry for those currently considering or working within the industry.

While the summit is open to everyone in the business (including editors, retailers, and influencers) its chief goal is to provide insight and support as designers turn what they love into something that is marketable and profitable.

During every summit, speakers take us on a deep dive into topics that create the largest learning curves for designers such as retailing, social media, accounting, and branding. When it comes to assembling experts it’s important to coordinators that the candidates represent the diversity of the market which is why pioneers like Jade Trau (Designer), Gurki Basra (Barneys Senior Fine Jewelry Buyer), Angela Koh (Senior Market Editor NYT Style Mag), and Nicole Wegman (Ring Concierge) were so important to include.

The summit will take on a new format with one-on-one discussions rather than group panels. The goal is for each speaker to leave a larger impression on streamers and audience members as a result of having focused time to hone-in on their specific skill set within the jewelry category. Attendees will walk away with the knowledge they need to chart their own course and make decisions based on facts, not emotions.

This third installment is poised to welcome speakers Stephanie Gottlieb (Fine Jewelry Influencer and Bridal Consultant) Polly Wales (International Fine Jewelry Designer), Laura Kitsos (Owner, Gem Jewelry Boutique), Katherine Jetter (Gemstone Expert and Retailer), Alain Simic (Jewelry Photographer), Manon Crespi (Jewelry Editor, Vincent Perugini (Boutique Owner, Vincent's Fine Jewelry) Sofia Ajram (Award winning Canadian Fine Jewelry Designer), Mariel Diaz (Accounting for Jewelers Founder), Beth Bernstein (Author, Journalist, Consultant), John Massad (Associate Buyer Fine Jewelry Barneys NYC), Benjamin Guttery (Graduate Gemologist, Jewelry Consultant, Social Media Pro), and Jessica Goldfond (Founder, The Shiny Squirrel PR). Moderators will include Fine Jewelry Consultant and Writer Jackie LeBental and former WJA Colorado President and former Senior Retail Buyer for David Yurman Nan Lung Palmer.

Those in the audience will have an opportunity to network with speakers, and for those who are out of the state/country or just unavailable on February 3rd, a streaming option is available.

To date over 300 jewelry brands, insiders, and enthusiasts from China to New Zealand, Houston to Montreal, have registered for this convenient option. Streaming allows registrants to tune in live and/or watch and rewind as many times as they like for up to 30 days after the summit. Audience members receive a link to rewatch also.

Tickets for the February 3rd Jewelry Independent Summit can be purchased online at
