This is going to be a week of firsts for New York’s National Jewelry Institute. On Friday, the nonprofit organization, which focuses on the research and preservation of fine jewelry, will open its first watch exhibition on “Time and the Jeweler’s Art,” at The Forbes Galleries.
“Our whole thing has been masterpieces of American, French or ancient jewelry,” says Judith Price, founder and president of the NJI, “and we wanted to do that with watches, while keeping the theme of jewelry [as a] decorative art.”
