New jewelry show slated for new year

Allison Kohler of JMK Shows announces a new jewelry show in New York City Jan. 19-20, 2013, which coincides with the first weekend of “Antiques Week,” New York’s celebration of antiques and fine art that takes place every January.

The venue for the show will be the Pratt Mansions Fifth Avenue, which is located directly across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and faces Central Park. The interior of this Belle Epoch landmark structure has a varied and stylish assortment of settings, from a sweeping staircase to a wood-paneled receiving room, elegant ballroom and formal parlor.

Featured will be 25 vendors showing magnificent antique, estate, vintage, costume and designer jewelry. In addition, there will be some ladies’ accessories, such as handbags and other feminine fancies on display.

“I always have an abundance of jewelry dealers asking to participate in my events,” Kohler said. “When I added the April New York City show at the Bohemian National Hall, the jewelry dealers were calling me to see if I had any booths available. Because I didn’t want more than a few jewelry dealers in that show, I decided to initiate an all-jewelry show. I think that holding it during the first weekend of Antiques Week in New York is a great way for people to start their shopping week

“There is a need on the part of both the customer and the exhibitor for this type of event, and we saw a window of opportunity, and are thrilled to be filling this need.”

The show will be held two times a year, with a second date in November.

Show hours are Saturday, January 19, 11-7 p.m. and Sunday, January 20, 11-5 p.m. For more information, contact JMK Shows and Events, 6 Pilgrim Dr., Succasunna, NJ 07876, call 973-927-2794 or visit www.jmkshows.coms.
