A group of nearly 200 industry leaders, local officials and jewelry connoisseurs gathered for The West Coast premiere of the jewelry documentary Masters of Dreams, which was screened at GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) headquarters in Carlsbad. The screening coupled with a sunset reception was held on September 18.

Ken McGrath, GIA graduate and filmmaker; Alberto Milani, CEO of the Americas for jewelry house Buccellati; and Guy Bedarida, creative director and head designer for jewelry house John Hardy, participated in a lively panel discussion following a showing of “The Italian Jewellers” segment.

“Not only does the film beautifully capture the diverse aesthetic of the different jewelry houses, it gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the truly global process of making jewelry. Having the West Coast premiere of this documentary series at GIA fits so well with the Institute’s mission to educate the public on gems and jewelry,” said Susan Jacques, chair of the GIA Board of Governors, who also served as panel moderator for the event.

Masters of Dreams is a four-part documentary series capturing behind-the-scenes with 13 of the world's most legendary jewelry houses: Boucheron, Buccellati, Bulgari, Chaumet, Chopard, Damiani, De Beers Jewellery, Forevermark, Graff Diamonds, H. Stern, John Hardy, Stephen Webster and Verdura. From Paris to New York, London to Bali, and Milan to Rio, the series films a journey into the world of fine jewelry, filled with famous families, gemstone hunters and some of the world’s most innovative designers. The series is produced by French Connection Films in partnership with Quasar Multimedia and Current Affairs Hambrook Communications.

Also, prior to the screening event, GIA students and staff in Carlsbad had the exclusive opportunity to preview the “Jewellers of the Americas” segment and speak with McGrath, Milani and Bedarida. “It was great coming back to my alma mater to show my peers – and current students – how I’ve been able to turn my passion for gems into a creative career. Combining my love of jewelry and filmmaking has been a journey, which all started in GIA’s halls back in 1980,” said McGrath.
