The Art of Jewelry Authentication at TRR
Hosted by Katherine Ward & Kate Bowles Smith
Gem X learned about the Art of Authentication in a special workshop hosted by TheRealReal at their new Madison Avenue location. In the company of valuation experts, we put on our detective hats and engaged in an interactive conversation about authentication practices. We learned what clues to look for to discern the origins of estate and vintage jewels. Then we put our knowledge to the test by authenticating real pieces under the loupe. Class happily dismissed.
