AIC23 GJ - Jewelry as Art

Session Description

The intersection of fine art and jewelry has been of interest to artists and jewelry designers alike. As a genre, “Art Jewelry” is attracting serious attention from the major auction houses. Fine art and jewelry appraisers are therefore encountering challenges in appraising art jewelry as the two disciplines converge and collaborate. This presentation, which was born out of an earlier panel presentation by the ASA Northern California Chapter, delves into issues like how we define “Art Jewelry”, whether a piece would be considered fine art or fine jewelry, ranking and value characteristics, uniqueness of design vs. materials, methodology and valuation sources. It will also include information from an experienced curator and jewelry retailers who deal exclusively with this type of jewelry. Included are examples of well-known and not so well-known artists who made jewelry, and jewelers who made art.
