Jewels by JAR: The Collection

November 18, 2013 Cheryl Kremkow Jewelry Design Tags: , , 0 Comments

The Jewels by JAR retrospective that runs from November 20 to March 9 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is a must-see for anyone interested in jewelry. The exhibition is proof that jewelry can be art: the pieces in the exhibition are sculpture in gems and metal. It’s a rare feast for the eyes: JAR is famously reclusive, selling by referral only. That’s why it’s exciting news that the jewelry in the exhibit isn’t the only JAR at the Met. The jeweler has created a special collection of earrings and watches that will be on sale during the exhibition.

The highlight of the items for sale are two styles of oversized earrings in resin or aluminum  that are $2,000-$7,500.  There is also a watch style, available in two colors, that is $600. Museum members receive a 10% discount.

Still a bit over your budget?  The exhibition catalog is $40 and the Met also has created a paper version of one of JAR’s butterfly pins.  It can be yours for $5.
