"When I first started attending the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, I would come for one day. Fast forward to now, I spend 5 days there and it still doesn’t feel like enough time! I love how walking this show is equal parts eye candy and history lesson; every person is so generous with the knowledge they have about the work they carry. And coming from New York City, it’s not the worst thing to spend a week in Miami in January! "


"The show is excellent. It’s my first time and I was surprised by the breadth of offering. I came expecting to see jewelry but I didn’t expect the furniture, the art, or the clothing and purses. It’s fascinating."



"We love going to OMBAS every year! We mostly go for the antique furniture and home decor. There are always so many great finds that it’s hard not to go crazy! Last year, we bought some beautiful pink Murano sconces that we just hung in the new studio; they’re perfect!"



"The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is a great show to see, learn and purchase amazing one-of-a-kind pieces. I highly recommend attending this annual show."



"If I could fall asleep anywhere, it would be here, this show is so amazing and I love being surrounded by all of the amazing art and jewelry and home décor; I never want to leave! "



"OMBAS is one of the most important shows in our industry, a must for anyone that is serious in buying or selling antique and estate jewelry, art or antiques."



A Brief History of the Permanence of Fine Jewelry

Prices of gold, platinum and silver are public knowledge, with the current price per ounce of the metals (at press time) $2,343.70, $930.90 and $27.57, respectively. It’s also easy enough to find out the going rate for diamonds and, with a little more digging, fair market prices for colored gemstones and pearls. Yet those numbers only paint part of the picture, as anyone in the trade can attest.

In Celebration of Women’s History Month: A Brief History of 3 Icons of Jewelry

March is officially recognized as Women’s History Month, and it is a prime opportunity to reflect on the impact women have had throughout history. From abolitionists to scientists, from teachers to doctors, from authors to politicians, women have had a profound effect on the world around us. Being the jewelry obsessives we are, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on a few key women (out of many!) who have meaningfully altered the world of jewelry. Whether by designing jewelry or influencing the way women adorn themselves, Suzanne Belperron, María Félix and Iris Apfel have created seismic shifts in the jewelry landscape.

The Legacy of Marina B

On February 14th of this year, designer Marina B passed away. She was 93. To say that Marina B was an icon of fine jewelry seems too small of a sentiment. The granddaughter of Sotirios Bulgari, who founded the famed Italian house, Marina finished her studies in art and mathematics before taking over the helm of the family business from her father, Constantino, in 1973. Soon after assuming the role of CEO for the brand, Marina realized that she needed to break from the family business in order to fully realize the potential of her creativity and vision, and, in 1978, she launched Marina B. Her first showroom was in Geneva, with stores in London, Milan, Monte Carlo, Paris and New York quickly following.

Trending Now: Jewelry to Wear Now and Cherish for Generations

Each month, we try to highlight a different genre or era of jewelry that can be discovered at our events. We often focus on museum-worthy pieces like the Van Cleef & Arpels “Zip” necklace, or some of the incredible, bespoke commissions of Mexican film star and jewelry aficionado, María Félix; it’s a thrill digging into the history and provenance of important jewelry!

How Often Do You Think About the Roman Empire?

How often does a typical man think about the Roman Empire? A lot more often than one would assume, apparently. This gender-specific phenomena first went viral in 2022, when Swedish influencer Saskia Cort encouraged her followers to ask the men in their lives this question, and again in August of 2023 when another Sweden-based influencer gave the prompt new life.

A Brief History of Aldo Cipullo

It’s difficult to believe that something as straightforward and ubiquitous as the Cartier Love Bracelet was once considered revolutionary, and yet when it was launched in 1970, it was a seminal moment in fine jewelry’s storied history, establishing a cosmic shift in what was considered de rigueur.
