We know many of you love jewelry and thought you might like some distraction during these times of social distancing.  Many of these movies are fantastic!  If you search on Google with the movie name followed by where to watch, you will see your options.  I hope you enjoy!

Thank you to Elyse Zorn-Karlin one of the founders of the Association for the Study of Jewelry and the Related Arts for formulating this list and keeping us engaged during this period of self isolation.  See what Elyse is up to at www.asjra.net.

I researched each movie at Wikipedia and thank them for providing the original movie posters.
