Special Events

Throughout the year, HSP hosts several exciting one-off programs and events, like film screenings, public art displays, musical performances, and more. You’ll want to stay tuned for announcements about upcoming special events!

Expert Eye: Jewelry
February 19 at 12 noon

Rago’s Director of Jewelry, Katherine Van Dell, will share why “Knowledge is a Collector’s Best Friend.” Learn the proper information to operate as an educated consumer when buying and selling jewelry.  Topics include: the difference between fair market value, retail value and insurance value; the information that should appear on all receipts when buying jewelry; the right questions to ask before buying or selling; and how to use a loupe. Depending on the audience interaction, discussion can include proper repair and/or tricks of the trade, such as the safest way to clean one’s jewelry. 

Guests are invited to bring their own pieces (or photographs) for identification and valuation following the talk. Appointments required; please call Eve Mandel at (609) 921-6748 x102.
