Membership and Donations

ASJH members are people who share a passion for jewelry, be it ancient, antique, or contemporary. We welcome collectors, dealers, historians, designers, gemologists, craftspeople, curators, appraisers–anyone with an interest in jewelry. You needn’t be a “historian” to benefit from membership. Our meetings are wonderful opportunities to hear interesting and informative lectures by experts from all over the United States and Europe, and to connect with others who share your interests. There is no better way to enter the fascinating realm of people and traditions relating to jewelry than a membership in the Society.
