JVC’s Annual Luncheon Will Be In-Person Again in January

It joins a slate of jewelry events returning to the format in New York City.

New York—Get out your 2022 calendars.

For now, January of next year looks to be filled with in-person jewelry events.

The latest addition to the calendar is the Jewelers Vigilance Committee’s Annual Luncheon.

It is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 14, at The Pierre Hotel in New York City.

Over lunch and cocktails, jewelry industry members are invited to connect and network. JVC will announce its latest initiatives to support the jewelry industry in 2022 and beyond.

“JVC’s Annual Luncheon unites our industry for a lively afternoon of networking, celebration, and fundraising for the important initiatives that JVC brings to our members,” said JVC President and CEO Tiffany Stevens.

“We also have the pleasure to honor an industry leader with our Stanley Schechter Award.”

Typically filled with jewelry industry galas, lunches, and board meetings, all in-person events in January 2021 were canceled, postponed, or taken virtual.

Jewelers of America delayed its annual Gem Awards gala until summer in the hopes of being able to gather in-person, then pivoted to a virtual awards broadcast last month.

The 24-Karat Club canceled its January banquet, and the Jewelers’ Security Alliance and JVC hosted virtual events.

But January 2022 is, so far, shaping up to resemble a pre-pandemic year.

Besides JVC’s in-person luncheon, Gem Awards will also reemerge from the virtual world.

It is also slated for Jan. 14. Held in the evening, as in years past, there will be plenty of time for industry members to attend both the JVC luncheon and the awards gala.

The 24 Karat Club of the City of New York’s annual banquet will happen in-person, too, on Saturday, Jan. 15. It will take place at a new location: Cipriani South Street.  

The JSA also has scheduled its annual luncheon for that same day, Jan. 15, in-person at the New York Yacht Club.
