If you like jewelry and you like books (and you probably do if you’re here reading this) then I bet you also love JEWELRY BOOKS. I have good news for you.
There’s a new hashtag in town: #IGJewelryBooks. It has one mission: jewelry book recommendations.
The hashtag was launched just a few days ago by Manor Jewels. In her inaugural #IGJewelryBooks post, @ManorJewels explained her motivation for the hashtag is education:
…We must do a better job of educating one another: Whether that’s sellers educating followers, collectors educating sellers (it does happen and it’s always wonderful to have snippets and insights shared!), buyers asking for clarification and getting clear, concise, and accurate information. Whatever we can do, let’s do it!”
I think this is absolutely fantastic: the more that jewelry lovers know, the better for everyone in our community. I plan to support the #IGJewelryBooks hashtag by posting some of my own jewelry book favorites on Instagram ASAP. The hashtag only had 6 posts when I discovered it (thanks to Laurie Geller for bringing it to my attention!) but I have a feeling it’s going to grow.
I’ve been wanting to get back to doing more jewelry book reviews on here for you and #IGJewelryBooks has me feeling all pumped up about it now! Please let me know if there’s any specific book you’ve been wanting to learn more about – I’ll see if I can get my hands on it for review.
While Manor Jewels’ original call to action specifically urges jewelry sellers to help educate buyers, I think that people from all sections of the jewelry community will have jewelry book recommendations to contribute.
Why don’t you head on over you your bookshelf and snap a picture of your favorite jewelry book to add to #IGJewelryReads? If enough people pitch in, we can make this a truly fantastic resource for book-loving jewelry enthusiasts all over the world.
Thanks to Manor Jewels for getting this going – I can’t wait to see everyone’s jewelry book recs!
