The end of summer is almost upon us, making it a good time for a few exciting announcements about fall jewelry events involving The Adventurine. Our Founder and Editorial Director, Marion Fasel, will be joined by Frank Everett, Sotheby’s delightful Senior Vice President of the Luxury Division, for a November 1 talk on Screen Gems: Jewelry in the Movies at L’Ecole: School for the Jewelry Arts while it is in residence in New York. Marion will also be interviewing Vogue contributor and fashion icon Lynn Yaeger about her jewelry obsession at the 92nd Street Y on November 13 to talk about Treasure Hunting. In other news, we have been obsessed with Carolina Bucci’s beads since we saw them at the beginning of the summer. The Telegraph did a nice story on the collection. And we totally geeked out at the science behind the story “How Bling Makes Us Human.” See links to everything below.
Join our own Marion Fasel and Frank Everett from Sotheby’s on November 1 for a conversation about “Screen Gems: Jewelry in the Movies” at L’Ecole: School for the Jewelry Arts while it is in residence this fall in New York at The Academy Mansion.

From The Telegraph—Handkerchief tops, bootleg hipster jeans, Von Dutch trucker caps…few things fashionable in the early noughties have stood the test of time. Carolina Bucci’s jewelry is one exception.
From The Conversation—Sparkly jewelry, expensive shoes, designer watches – who doesn’t love a bit of “bling”? In 2017 Australians spent $28.5 billion on ornamenting themselves with clothing, cosmetics, and accessories. But this obsession with decorating our bodies isn’t just a trivial activity. Archaeological evidence shows us it’s actually a large part of what makes us human.
