Throughout its history, New York City is constantly reinventing itself as the epicenter of everything – art, theater, music, fashion, food, finance and of course, jewelry.
The energy of its streets, the diversity of its neighborhoods, and the strength of its communities is a testament to NYC’s ability to get through hard times and be better than ever.
Join us as we go “back in time” and look at the city, through the lens of jewelry, and stroll its streets in other eras. Sometimes it takes only one new shop or one new artist to shift a neighborhood in a new direction…
Take yourself on a stroll through NoMad to explore a few remnants of the neighborhood’s Gilded Age jewelry past, from famous jewel houses to forgotten diamond shops, and a hotel where dandies and swindlers showed off their glittering collections.
