Join us Tuesday, March 1st at 7:00pm on Zoom for the next installment of our storytelling series on great jewelry finds,
Jewelry Detectives: The Case of the Missing Pendant.
A call from a graduate student researching her thesis, a school essay written in the 1940s, and a dog-eared scrapbook filled with designs by turn of the century “jewelers’ jeweler” Gustav Manz turns magazine editor and Manz’s great-granddaughter Laura Mathews into a Jewelry Detective. Follow the trail to the untold mysteries of Manz, as Mathews takes us on a fascinating decade-long journey, filled with startling discoveries, family intrigue, and Gilded Age gossip, told in conversation with TJL’s Karen Davidov.
