WJA NY Metro | Russia's Rich Jewelry History, with Marie Betteley
Join jewelry dealer, gemologist and Russian specialist, Marie Betteley, as she discusses her new book "Beyond Fabergé: Imperial Russian Jewelry," and recounts her life surrounded by jewels and Fabergé. Marie Betteley grew up in a world of Russian treasures, which inspired her education and career as a gemologist at New York’s prestigious Christie's auction house. Now running her own New York-based antique jewelry business, she consults for auction houses, museums, and private collectors worldwide, and is thrilled to address the WJA New York Metro chapter. "Beyond Fabergé: Imperial Russian Jewelry" is a lavishly illustrated survey of the leading jewelers and silver masters of Imperial Russia, and an indispensable reference on the Russian jewelry arts.
