The Jewelry Independent Summit has gained global recognition in the jewelry industry for bridging the gap between “creativity and business” for modern jewelry designers. The 3rd industry summit will be held on Sunday, February 3, 2019 in NYC and for the first time, offer a live stream of the event. The Jewelry Independent Summit will provide a curated crash-course in all things jewelry for those currently considering or working within the industry.

While the summit is open to everyone in the business (including editors, retailers, and influencers) its chief goal is to provide insight and support as designers turn what they love into something that is marketable and profitable. During every summit speakers take us on a deep dive into topics that create the largest learning curves for designers such as retailing, social media, accounting, and branding.
