Ms. Singer’s presentation explored the role of the female in the jewelry industry. An intriguing dichotomy exists in that although women typically function as the ultimate consumers of jewelry products, most jewelry designers are, and historically have been, men.
Nonetheless, the prominent contribution of the smaller subset of women designers provides an important reminder of just how relevant the female eye is, and how influential the female form can be, in a design environment.
To illustrate these concepts, Ms. Singer profiled the work of noteworthy designers including Coco Chanel, Marianne Ostier, Suzanne Belperron, Jeanne Toussaint, and Marilyn Cooperman.
