Ivanka Trump to headline US jewellery conference

Platinum jewellery specialist Ivanka Trump has been selected as the keynote speaker at a special conference set to be held in March.

The 28-year-old will headline the Women’s Jewellery Association’s (WJA) Women in the Know event, which will take place at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

Trump is expected to discuss the value of a dedicated attitude to the jewellery industry, creating a strong identity and how individuals can use uncertainty to their advantage.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Ivanka Trump as this year’s keynote speaker,” said Anne Valentzas, vice-president of education at the WJA and Leo Schachter Diamonds’ vice-president of marketing.

“Among the many insightful business lessons Ms Trump will share with us will be those learned during the inspiration, development and production phases of her jewellery line, which are perfect for our WJA audience.”

Trump’s line, known as Ivanka Trump Fine Jewellery, is based in Manhattan and offers modern interpretations on pieces crafted from platinum, gold and diamonds from the 1920s through to the 1960s.

Early registration for the March 12th event runs until March 1st and WJA members can pay $200 to secure their tickets, while non-members must pay $225.
