Talking jewelry trends at new Miami Beach show venue

MIAMI — The 2014 Miami Beach Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will welcome vendors and attendees to a new venue this year. The show, which is slated for Nov. 7-9, will be held at the Miami Airport Convention Center.

Just 13 miles from Miami Beach, the event will showcase internationally recognized dealers and a serious variety of antique, vintage and estate jewelry and watches.

Renamed the Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, this year’s event will cater to an array of antique jewelry enthusiasts in Miami, Coral Gables, Ft. Lauderdale and beyond. In addition, the new venue will accommodate a larger number of shoppers looking to get a head start on holiday gift buying.

“The Miami Airport Convention Center’s proximity to major highways in south Florida allows buyers from nearby counties easy access to the show. Plus, the new space will provide attendees a greater variety of merchandise to find special and unique gifts for the upcoming holiday season,” says Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions vice president and U.S. Antique Shows general manager.
The Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show hosts more than 100 well-established dealers presenting their treasures.

On the show floor, jewelry and watch collections from the Renaissance to Retro eras are represented, as well as signed pieces from global brands like Cartier, Rolex, Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston and more.

Show attendees will also have the opportunity to attend an educational session hosted by the South Florida GIA Alumni Association and AGS Guild of South Florida. The session, titled “The 10 Jewelry Trends That You Need to Know Now & Why” will be presented by Jennifer Heebner, senior editor of JCK Magazine.

The educational session will be held Friday, Nov. 7 and is open to all GIA alumni, as well as members of the AGS Guild. Networking will begin at 7 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7:30 p.m.

Show times for the Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7 and Saturday, Nov. 8, and from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m on Sunday, Nov. 9. Admission is $20 for all three days.
