LUXURY Prive Show held at the Waldorf Astoria/ Jewelry is Art!

As a member of the Press, (Helium Network) I was able to attend the LUXURY Prive Show held at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. My professional jewelry background includes extensive studies at Gemological Institute of America, Carlsbad with sales experience to include Tiffany's, Bailey, Banks, & Biddle, and Shreve & Company. I worked as a traveling sales representative for Stephen Singer Antique & Estate Jewelers, NYC meaning I took a million dollars worth of jewelry in a suitcase with body guards with guns to meet me at the airports. I explain this only to show how much the jewelry industry has changed in 15 short years, pre-911.

I had the honor to sit next to and chat with such notables as Diane Warga-Arias (JewelryActivist), Diamond Expert Host on HSN, and across from Tom Heyman from the Oscar Heyman family, with information regarding the book of family history being created by the Boston Museum of Fine Art, executive Ron Greenidge from Emiko Pearls with offices in Hong Kong & Seattle, Robert Andrews with ZIVA, and Becky Cole, independent blogger.

The "buzz" was about what the women were going to wear to the evening signature event of the Women's Jewelry Association. Each company had a few minutes in the breakfast sessions to explain who they were, their latest design issues & successes, and friendly reminders of how long they had all known one another with those in the room.
