New partnership aims to strengthen antiques trade
Aug 10, 2016

The U.S.-based luxury e-commerce site RubyLUX.com has teamed up with the 5,000-member-strong international dealer organization the Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d’Art (CINOA). The partners’ mission is to change the way “consumers buy antiques, fine furniture, jewelry and art...by uniting the tools of technology with the broad knowledge and expertise of CINOA members, eliminating all trade borders.” They also intend to provide educational programs, and work toward the prevention of art theft and forgery.

CINOA is a nonprofit made up of associations representing international arts and antiques dealers, including 5,000 dealers from 32 associations across 22 countries.
