Presentation for the American Gem Trade Association’s 2011 Tucson GemFaire: “Gems, Jewelry and Culture.”

For all time, humanity has had the impulse to wear jewelry. What’s it all about, anyway? The forms, motifs and styling of jewelry speak of culture, uniquely reflecting events, forces and moods of a given time, place,… and people. How are we alike and how are we different? How did some of today’s jewelry shapes and forms originate? How is an ancient fertility pendant different from a hip hop chain? Cynthia Zava connects jewelry and culture with this inspiring multi-media look at the stylistic and fashion meanings behind jewelry and current trends that can be adapted to use in your store.
