Leaning in the Good!

We hope that you are all well, in good health and positive spirit.

We are delighted to share our latest news with you. The lockdown in the Netherlands is gradually being released and all the museums, theatres and restaurants will re-open as of 1st June.

Meanwhile things have been extremely busy around here. Luckily all of us are healthy and we have all adapted well to working within the new directives.

Also, Van Gelder Galleries, where we only moved to last January, is perfectly fitted to hold space for our clients and our team!

We are happy to see that both friends and clients find their way to come and see us and our collections of Indian heritage jewellery and contemporary designs in our beautiful new surroundings!

As always, we are open by appointment, so please feel free to contact us to schedule a visit. We look forward to show you around and catch up!

To plan your visit, please contact Marieke via marieke@vangelderjewellery.com or call 0031.73.303.48.00 .

As always we lean in all the good that remains around us! Consequently we have decided to put all our efforts and energy in letting something new and positive grow during those days of distance…;

We co-initiated a project meant to raise funds for Covid-19 relief in India now, and rooted in finding a long term, sustainable way to preserve local artisanal skills and craftsmanship.

The result of this is Window of Opportunity, which went live this week!

It would be wonderful if you could look into this, through its online portal, www.windowopp.com or follow on @windowopp.

We would love it if you would consider maybe joining us in these efforts, any way you see fit!

Lastly, we can’t tell you enough how excited we are that with museums, theaters and restaurants opening again! The Netherlands, as are Belgium and Germany, is adapting well to this new normal. We consider ourselves terribly lucky!

Especially for those who are not quite there yet, you are all cordially invited to browse through our website and social channels. It provides you with ample background information, context and rich visuals on both Heritage and our own designed Contemporary Collections of Indian jewellery…, a source of inspiration and stories worth sharing!

For your #dailydoseofbeauty we recommend this month’s lovely contribution by Hélène van der Ven, sharing her insights on the amazing work of Norman Parkinson.

So whether you like to #studyorshop, Van Gelder Galleries is your destination!

Warm regards,
The Van Gelder’s
