From 19 to 27 september, the Spiegelkwartier was hustling and bustling. More than 40 galleries and shops from in and outside of town displayed their collections during Amsterdam Art and Antiques Week. An art fair in the streets of Amsterdam. Our doors were wide open, we had a beautiful exhibition and visitors enjoyed lectures by jewellery historian Martijn Akkerman.
Especially for the occasion we displayed hats by the legendary Harry Scheltens with jewellery from our collection with or on them. The lecture 'A jewel of a hat' by Martijn Akkerman was breathtaking and went from Coco Chanel, via Ernst Casimir and My Fair Lady to the hat pins and jewellery that Queen Maxima wears on her hats.
Passers-by, old aqcuaintances and new customers browsed our collection, which is always updated with new items. We really enjoyed the visits of so many jewellery lovers and collectors admiring our pieces and finding something they love. This is what keeps us going!
Around Christmas 2020 we will do a new exhibtion and we'll have new lectures fitting the theme. Keep an eye on our website and social media.
We hope to see you soon on Spiegelgracht,
Ron and Melissa Verburg-Dekker
