There are plenty of reasons to escape to the Hamptons this weekend, one of them being the first-of-its-kind, four-day shopping extravaganza Hamptons Jewelry Show, at the 20,000 square foot Jewelry Pavilion at Southampton Elks Fairgrounds from Thursday, August 2nd through Sunday, August 5th, 2018. Renowned estate dealers including Tiffany & Co, Cartier, Rolex, Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb and Harry Winston are among 90 exclusive dealers from around the world exhibiting their finest wares to the public.
If $40+ million in fine jewelry and luxury art collectibles is not enough reason to book a seat on the Hampton Luxury Liner, official event sponsor, below are 15 more reasons why the exhibition will be the biggest event of summer 2018.
- Be A Part of this Extraordinary Moment In Hamptons History
On opening night, Thursday, August 2nd, 2018, witness the unveiling of $40 million in remarkable jewelry plus luxury art collectibles from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Hamptons Jewelry Show will kick off with a toast to the irresistible deals to be made the entire weekend. The red carpet will give way to elite jewelry collectors, Hamptons socialites, and distinguished patrons from all over the world.
- The Opening Night Preview benefits The Ellen Hermanson Foundation
Give back in an extraordinary way, the Hamptons Jewelry Show welcomes your support of the opening night beneficiary, The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. Proceeds will benefit women’s health care through 3D mammography screenings at the state-of-the-art breast health care center, and its satellite locations in Hampton Bays and East Hampton.
- Prices Are Exceptionally Low and Value Is Attainably High
Presumably, residents and visitors of America’s preeminent playground for the super-rich and famous may not need a bargain. However, luxury pieces ranging from $500 a piece to $1 million, such as yellow and colored diamonds, are priced way below retail value offering buyers treasure for an exceptionally low price.
- Highly Secured and Heavily Guarded
A government issued ID is mandatory to gain access to more than $40 million worth of fine jewelry and luxury collectibles, and the tremendous bargains available on every level. To protect the diamond and jewelry worth millions of dollars, an army of armed guards, undercover security detail and the Southampton Town Police will be on-site throughout the course of the weekend.
- Cutting Out The Markup Of The Middle Man
Attendees can buy direct from estate dealers, artists, goldsmiths, and international brands offering unbelievable prices and deals all weekend long. This will be the first time that some of the world’s most renowned international dealers will sell Business-to-Customer(B2C), as opposed to Business-to-Business(B2B). Many exhibitors at the Hamptons Jewelry Show have never done a consumer show, and they are very eager to meet their customers directly.

Jewelry industry visionary, Alexandra Mor will lead a lively discussion on Friday, August 3rd, 2018 at 12:00 p.m., regarding the future of fine jewelry collecting in the 21st century.

- The Extraordinary Selection Dismantles The Jewelry Industry Pecking Order
There is a long-established status quo within the jewelry industry that separates the estate dealers from the craft designers, and international brands from selling directly to eager patrons. An achievement, in and of itself, was assembling an extraordinary program of exhibitors hailing from 12 countries and 14 states all under one roof and available to the public. Executive Director Rick Friedman and Show Director Eleni Prieston carefully curated 90 remarkable dealers that will exhibit their finest wares and collectibles at the Hamptons Jewelry Show. Guests can expect high quality pieces from respected jewelry and art designers.

- Arthur Wiener to be Awarded Collector of the Year | Garden Lounge
Real estate businessman and philanthropist Arthur Wiener will be honored on Sunday, August 5th during the Panel Discussion from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. His passion for collecting fired arts and his diverse collections of ceramics and glass range from 19th century British pottery and porcelain and contemporary ceramic art from the Ardmore Studio, in South Africa, as well as American studio glass. Connoisseurs, like Weiner, have appreciated the art of pottery, porcelain, and glass for centuries but now with the energy of contemporary artists these decorative arts are on fire with collectors. With the help of Arthur Weiner and his illustrious experience, panel attendees will learn how to evaluate art jewelry and discover who’s who in this art category.
- An Entire Weekend to Make a Well-Informed Decision
Ideally, attendees should enter the Hamptons Jewelry Show with a strategy for the four-day extravaganza. A never-before-experienced event of this caliber is not the place for hasty decision making. Every exhibitor in the room is provided their own intimate showroom, taking into consideration the privacy of all attendees. The Hamptons Jewelry Show, over the course of four days, affords attendees the time and opportunity to ponder the perfect purchase.
