The Buzz 1: “Aren’t I a human being? Don’t I yearn and…ache and shop? Don’t I deserve love... and jewelry?” [Addams Family Values, 1993 film] The Buzz 2: “Invest wisely. Safely, at least.

Jewelry has been used for adornment, as a symbol of status or power, and as a medium of exchange. In ancient times, people made jewelry out of materials like shells, bones, and stones. As civilizations progressed, materials like gold, silver, and precious gems were used. In more recent times, the use of jewelry as a form of self-expression has led to some humorous and whimsical designs, such as brooches shaped like hamburgers, earrings shaped like cupcakes, and bracelets shaped like sushi rolls. We’ll ask jewelry industry experts Victoria Wieck, Michele Lau, Susan Chandler and Haider Sayed for their take on The Future of the Jewelry Industry and Technology: All That Glitters?
