Details and Jewelry Highlights From the Upcoming GemGenève Show


The sixth edition of GemGenève takes place May 11 through 14 in Geneva, Switzerland, and the annual international gem and jewelry show is drawing more attention than ever before, with over 210 exhibitors (187 of which are jewelry dealers) from 20 countries.

“We attribute just as much importance to precious stones and the creation and design of jewelry as we do to the fostering of genuine solidarity, bringing together the international community of traders in precious stones and antique jewelry, designers, and all those with a passion for jewels,” said GemGenève cofounder Thomas Faerber in a statement.

Beyond jewels, the show offers visitors the opportunity to attend panel discussions, lectures, and other educational programs led by industry experts on relevant topics ranging from gemstone mining and sustainability to jewelry design.

Show cofounder Ronny Totah explained in a statement how the event differs this year from previous years: “GemGenève will be taking over Hall 1 at Palexpo, with total exhibition space of over 13,000 square meters [nearly 140,000 square feet]. Exhibitors will be arrayed around four coffee station areas, two main aisles, and a lounge hosting exhibition spaces, projects, and after-work musical and literary events. Indeed, music will be very much a part of the event this year, thanks to a concept designed by our director, Mathieu Dekeukelaire.”

Below are a few of the must-see pieces that will be at the show. For ticketing and information, visit GemGenève’s official site.
