Del Mar Community Connections to sponsor talk on the art and history of jewelry

Ah, the month of February with its lovely reminder of hearts, flowers, candy and gems. What could be more timely than a discussion of “Jewelry: The History and the Art” presented by local antique and estate jewelry dealer Judy Schuckit and sponsored by Del Mar Community Connections from 1-3 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Del Mar City Hall Annex?

The lecture is free and open to the public. Reservations may be made by calling 858- 792-7565.

Schuckit said her 40-minute talk will cover the social history of jewelry and how styles have changed, and the difference between appraisals and evaluations. During a 20-minute question and answer session she will take several pieces of jewelry brought by attendees and discuss their historic significance and current value for the group. Attendees are encouraged to bring an interesting piece of jewelry to share.

Growing up in the jewelry business, Schuckit said she slowly became interested in the art and history of gems while working at UC San Diego She notes she is most interested in antique jewelry of the 19th and 20th centuries, especially the Edwardian, Art Deco and Art Nouveau of the 1890s to 1940. She has shared her expertise speaking to groups throughout the country.
