Research and innovation

AGC is open to practicing jewellers, artists, designers, craftsmen, gallery owners, critics, museum curators, journalists, collectors, teachers, schools, foundations and cultural institutions, wishing to deepen and develop their knowledge in the contemporary jewellery field.

AGC encourages and supports initiatives aimed at the exchange of information, experimentation, education, establishing of connections among the members, both through its online platform and through the formation of work groups that freely get together to carry out projects, produce documents and develop specific themes.

AGC is a non-profit organization that was created to develop and promote the art of contemporary jewellery meant as:

  • Artistic research;
  • Renewal of the concept of ornament;
  • Experimenting with new materials and technologies;
  • Protection, study and updating of historical heritage made up of know-how and abilities.


AGC was founded in Trieste in June 2004 by a group of professionals to create new opportunities for the development and qualification of contemporary jewellery, aiming to promote a constructive and synergistic dialogue with the artistic and productive scenes on an international level.
