Join leading experts for a wide-ranging look at the jewelry, precious metals, and diamond industries. Jewelry is our lens, with a twin focus on artistry and responsible practice. A focus, we suggest, unique to IAC.
All of us, from those upstream in supply chains to those realizing an artistic vision in fine jewelry, must maintain purpose: we must do the work, ever committed to effecting the change we seek.
Thus, conscious of the imperative to balance the needs of current and future generations, we explore varied declarations of purpose and principle on responsible practice and cultural preservation and how to harmonize and operationalize them, taking action, driven by aspiration. We consider new technologies for extraction and sourcing, new mine-to-market models, and new approaches to training, whether the next generation of jewelers or miners. Always with an eye to meeting evolving environmental and climate challenges.
Perhaps most fundamentally, we investigate the critical question of what constitutes luxury in an age of responsible practice.
The conference is highlighted by the participation of jewelers Silvia Furmanovich, Satta Matturi, and Pippa Small.
During the conference, IAC will present its 6th annual award for Leadership in Responsible Practice and 3rd annual award for Outstanding Contributions to the Diamond and Jewelry Industries.
