What you'll do

Do you love old jewelry? Want to know more about identifying gems? Let's get together! We will meet for a brief talk on gemology and/or jewelry history (about 20-30 minutes) and I will get to know what you are looking for. I will provide loupes, texts and resources for use during the talk. After we will hit one of my favorite estate dealer shops for a half hour to an hour or I can do individual valuations of pieces you have questions about (think a mini Antiques Roadshow). I can help pick out an engagement ring, identify gems or talk to you about antique and vintage jewelry design. Every outing is tailored to the guests and every outing ends with a glass of wine at my favorite tasting room! We will spend about two hours together, but if the conversation is flowing at the end of the journey I can certainly stick around to chat. This is an immersive experience for those who want to talk jewelry with an expert!

Laura

I am a jewelry fanatic and have been curating and selling vintage and antique jewelry at MrsGotrocksJewelry for over a decade. My knowledge of gemology and jewelry history has bent many an ear at cocktail parties but I would love to get to know others who have a passion for gems and jewelry! I can help identify and value pieces you have inherited, pick out the right engagement ring, and show you some of my favorite estate vendors around Frederick. If it sparkles, I am the girl to talk to!

Where you'll be

Our initial talk will be at a centrally located historic 19th century rowhouse or English style rowhouse garden (weather depending) and will include a formal presentation with light refreshments. We will then head to one of my favorite estate jewelry dealers (who has been in business over 30 years) OR we can linger in the garden and do an evaluation of your pieces. Each group is different in what they want to discuss. We end the outing with wine!

More tips

This will require a few blocks of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. Parking is on street and may have meters. There are several garages downtown. This is best suited for those who love to talk gems!
