The events of 2020 brought about a cultural shift where black talent is recognized for its brilliance and jewelry designers for their contribution. They have fascinating stories to tell. Almost all of the designers are new to Sotheby’s and most have created new pieces exclusively for the occasion, taking advantage of this decisive opportunity to share their know-how and creativity with a wide audience. The exhibit is fully purchasable – a first for the auction house – online until October 10 and in person at Sotheby’s galleries in New York City from September 17-26.
