WEDNESDAY, September 29th: LONDON: RINGS from the GOLDSMITHS’ COMPANY COLLECTION, A GOLDSMITHS’ FAIR PROGRAM
It’s that time of year, when once again the splendid Goldsmiths’ Hall lights up with the gleam of the finest fine jewelry and silversmithing in the UK today. It is the annual Goldsmiths’ Fair and we are excited to share this invitation to an exclusive event. Join Company Curators Dr. Dora Thornton and Dr. Frances Parton as they discuss the exquisite, unique and inimitable rings from this year’s Fair exhibition ‘Rings: A World of Invention’. The talk will cover the landmark 1961 International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery held at Goldsmiths’ Hall 60 years ago, unique rings from the exhibition and the stories behind them. We’ll also have the unique opportunity to get a closer look at select rings from the Company’s vault, which are not on public view and will give us additional context for the exhibition. For those who can stay on a bit, we will then take a walk around the Fair to marvel at the jewels on display.

We hope you can don your own favorite rings and join us at the Goldsmiths’ Fair. Please RSVP, as space is limited. Of note, all guests much have the correct Fair ticket to gain access. Once your reservation is confirmed, you will receive an email with a link to easily book the right ticket and a unique discount code, which will grant you complimentary daytime access to the Fair as well as to our event. RSVP is open via link in the title.

Marion Fasel, Founder of The Adventurine and curator of the recent Beautiful Creatures exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History, will join as a special guest to share tales of her favorite under-the-sea creatures, a timeless inspiration for master jewelers. And dress code you ask? Simply wear an outfit and/or jewel that embraces the theme of our evening, be it a nautical pattern, creature of the sea or gem from the ocean.

Departure is at 5:00PM sharp, so please arrive at 4:45PM so you do not miss the boat. The boarding details will be disclosed upon RSVP.
