And just like that, GemGenève is back. The fifth edition of the show, a version of which took place in May in Geneva, will run Nov. 3–6 in the same city.
“We had initially planned to hold only one edition, in May 2022. Following calls from our exhibitors, we’ve decided to organize a second edition in autumn 2022 in Geneva, but this shouldn’t become standard practice in the future,” said Ronny Totah, one of two of the show’s founders (alongside Thomas Faerber), in a release.
Dedicated to the diverse world of gems and jewels, GemGenève is a public trade fair that brings together both distinguished and emerging talent: “created by exhibitors for exhibitors,” according to a statement.
“We attribute just as much importance to precious stones and the creation and design of jewelry as we do to the fostering of real solidarity,” said Faerber in the same statement, “by uniting the international community of traders in precious stones and antique jewelry, designers, and all those with a passion for jewels.”
This edition of the show is taking its programming a step further, with surprises that will be gradually revealed throughout the weekend of the show. Among them is an event celebrating 40th anniversary of the Fondation Igor Carl Fabergé, which will present a range of pieces—from imperial eggs to objets de vertu—that showcase the elegance of Carl Fabergé’s work. Other dedicated areas will celebrate certain themes, including emerging talents, Ukranian designers, the art of micro mosaics, collaborations with schools, and plenty of conferences and seminars.
GemGenève’s November show, held at Palexpo convention center’s hall 6, will also coincide with the major fall auctions during Geneva Luxury Week.
