Two Industry Resources Join Forces for Jewelry Educational conferences in 2019

Two Industry Resources Join Forces for Jewelry Educational conferences in 2019 Two important resources for people interested in the study of jewelry history are joining forces. Antique Jewelry University and The Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts (ASJRA) have announced that they will partner to offer conferences on jewelry history for the next three years.

Antique Jewelry University, a non-profit site available to the public, is the web's most comprehensive source for knowledge about ancient, antique and period jewelry.

A dynamic encyclopedia was developed and is maintained by Lang Antiques of San Francisco, AJU provides information on jewelry history, jewelers, gemstones, hallmarks, and other jewelry-related topics. Lang’s gemologists, historians, writers, selling professionals, computer programmer, website developer, and fine arts photographer all contribute to the content of the site, ensuring that it is accurate, thorough and user friendly.

Used extensively by jewelry professionals and jewelry enthusiasts around the world, AJU is an invaluable, authoritative, and trustworthy resource for both scholarly research and the personal pleasure of learning more about the many aspects of period jewelry.

The Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts is an organization that provides an in-depth analysis of jewelry from all time periods though various media and events. It is committed to the dissemination of knowledge to anyone who is interested in the history of jewelry. This is achieved by the publishing of Adornment Magazine and a bi-monthly newsletter. For the last 13 years it has organized an annual event as a forum for curators, academic historians, and scholars and artists to present new and interesting information about jewelry to anyone who has an interest in the subject. ASJRA offers a chance to learn and network with people who collect, appraise, study, and research jewelry history.

ASJRA seeks to understand and place jewelry within a variety of contexts, including from the ancient past to the present day, the decorative arts, and fashion, using jewelry as a window into the study of cultures and specific time periods. It

also focuses on learning about politics, cultural changes, world events, and more by studying jewelry trends, materials and usage.

Joining Forces
It seemed a natural fit for ASJRA to join forces with Antique Jewelry University to partner in offering conferences to the public. The first joint conference will take place June 8, 2019 in Boston at the Masschusetts College of Art and Design. An optional Study Day will be offered on June 7, 2019. The 2019 conference is entitled “20th Century Jewelry 1900-1960”.
