New York—A new antique jewelry show is coming to New York City this fall, just in time for NYC Jewelry Week.

KIL Promotions, an events company founded by jewelry designer and antiques dealer Konstantinos Leoussis of KIL NYC, is hosting the first NYC Autumn Jewelry and Object Show.

The inaugural show will be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion from Nov. 16-19.

The show will be open to both the trade and consumers.

“I wanted to create a new and exciting jewelry event … that could bring all sorts of dealers, collectors, and object lovers together from all paths of life,” Leoussis said in a press release announcing the new show. 

“This is an amazing opportunity for antique jewelry dealers, watch dealers, contemporary jewelry designers, and object-sellers to showcase their items in one of the greatest cities in the world, in an uplifting and supportive environment.”

It’s that supportive atmosphere that will set this show apart from others, Leoussis said.

“We want to create as many opportunities for SEO, press, etc., for our dealers, because they are the ones who make the show as special as it is. We want to listen and invest in them as much as they are willing to invest in this new venture of ours,” he explained in an email to National Jeweler.

Affordability is also a hallmark of the show, according to organizers, with pricing that is “reasonable and competitive,” making it an accessible venue for a wider range of exhibitors.

Retailers looking to shop the show and revamp their inventory also will have options for wholesale pricing.

On the show floor, attendees will find a selection of antique and vintage jewelry and watches, including from the Victorian era and the Art Deco period, said organizers.

Vendors are encouraged to share their jewels’ stories with guests, particularly the craftsmanship that went into their creation, as a way to build connections with the industry.

There will also be a space for contemporary jewelry designers to exhibit their work and share their stories.

Organizing a trade show is no small feat, something Leoussis can attest to.

“[The hardest part was] everything, from creating a website, doing immense amounts of outreach—mainly in person—mapping out booths, and spending an enormous [amount of] time answering potential vendor’s questions. It’s been worth it, as the response has been really amazing.”

A spring version of the show is tentatively scheduled for April 2024, while a sister show in Tokyo is set for next summer.
