This evening was a wonderfully pleasurable one, surrounded by an array of beautiful and curious objects at The International Fine Art & Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory. What made it even more extraordinary was a tour through a selection of the exceptional exhibitors, hosted by Natalie Bos of Jewels du Jour and an engaging talk by esteemed historian and jewelry curator Clive Kandel. The evening culminated at the Hancocks space, where these amazing jewels were discovered! The show is up through the Thursday, October 23rd, if you are curious…

jewels-by-jar-the-metFor just 3 more days, over 400 enchanting works by Joel A. Rosenthal currently grace the halls of the MET in New York City – and dazzle the eyes of many ladies. To say this exhibition is a rare delight is an understatement. His name is “whispered” among a select number of women who are passionate about high jewellery and the gentleman is known to shy from the spotlight. What the MET has done is curate JAR’s acclaimed work over the past three decades. His pieces are playful, intricately bejewelled flora, fauna and objets d’art that both drip with colour and flicker in even the lowest light. Unless you are among his few fortunate clients, this is truly a once in a lifetime experience to behold his masterful creations.

Deeper musings on JAR and the jewellers who inspired him can be found on the wonderful blog Jewels du Jour. Thank you Natalie!

Below are just a few of his breathtaking creations:
