On the Road: 24 Karat Club’s Summer Soiree

Welcome to my first On the Road column!


If we’ve yet to meet, let me tell you a little about myself. I’ve been in the industry 17 years, first as the publisher of JCK magazine and now as the chief content executive for Jeweler’s Mutual Group. Throughout my time in jewelry, I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world on the jewelry circuit, and meet incredible people along the way.


I love this industry’s global circuit and all the fun we all have on the road. I’m excited to share some smiling faces and event photos from some of the most industry’s most beloved events.


First up: the 24 Karat Club of New York’s annual summer outing. Traditionally held at the New York Athletic Club’s Travers Island location, this year’s edition was staged in the heart of Manhattan beneath a jaw-dropping view of the Empire State Building!


Congrats to the club for a fresh take on a classic…I’m looking forward to more exciting 24 Karat events!
