Parsons, NJI Team Up for Second Jewelry Course

New York–The National Jewelry Institute and Parsons School of Design are partnering up for their second annual educational course, “The Fine Art of High Jewelry and Timepieces,” which will take place this October in New York.

The class is a four-day intensive that includes lectures on high jewelry from a curator at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, lessons on the business of luxury conducted by various curators and experts, as well as lunches and cocktails with various jewelry and watch executives and collectors.

Some of the jewelry and watch houses participating in the course include Cartier, Chopard, Graff, Christian Dior and Piaget.

The program culminates in a graduation ceremony, where participants will be awarded a certificate from Parsons.

National Jewelry Institute founder and President Judith Price said, “While participants appreciate and buy high jewelry, they want to take the next step and really learn about the history of jewelry and what makes the brands special. The attendees come from all over the world, especially Canada and Southeast Asia, and really get a chance to bond during the week. They return home with new friends and most importantly, a deeper understanding of high jewelry and timepieces.”
