Charamonde Leaves Palm Beach Show Group

Kris Charmonde, who founded Palm Beach Show Group with Rob Samuels and Scott Diament 10 years ago, has been bought out by his partners.

He’s going back to his original career - buying and selling estate jewelry - which he abandoned to start the art fairs.

“I decided to take more time for myself,” said Charamonde, who is 51. “I traveled 30 weeks a year. I had a partner who is much younger than me. He has a lot of energy and is very into technology and expanding the company.”

The partner he’s referring to is Diament, 39, who will take over as the face of the company. Samuels, Diament’s partner in Provident Jewelry and a hotel that’s scheduled to break ground at Clematis Street and Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach this fall, will focus on those ventures.
