Save the date: Haute Jewels Geneva is back for 2023, organizers say, bringing its 18 luxury jewelry brands together again at the Fairmont Grand Hotel Geneva.
The jewelry exhibition featuring organizer Yoko London along with brands including Roberto Coin, Sutra, and Crivelli, will be held March 26 through April 2, 2023. Registration for visitors and the media is now open, Yoko London reps say.
Although it was founded in 2019, this upcoming show technically is its third year. The first Haute Jewels Geneva happened with its four inaugural jewelers, creating a new kind of trade show, Yoko London CEO and Haute Jewels Geneva founder Michael Hakimian said. Organizers canceled the show in 2020 and 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the 2022 Haute Jewels Geneva proved so successful that the brands wanted to get the gang back together, so to speak. The event focuses on providing an intimate setting and a “targeted, luxurious experience” for all who participate, Hakimian said.
Yet the atmosphere is relaxed and casual for exhibitors and visitors alike so everyone can get to know one another and have real, substantive conversations before, during, and after the event, he said.
The 2023 exhibiting brands include Yoko London, Roberto Coin, Sutra, Crivelli, Bayco, Etho Maria, Stenzhorn, Marco Bicego, Mariani, Palmiero, Picchiotti, Gorgoglione, Hans D. Krieger, Leo Pizzo, Verdi, Annamaria Cammilli, Sicis Jewels, and Baraka.
Picchiotti, the Valenza-based Italian heritage jewelry brand, says it will exhibit styles from the patent pending Xpandable Reversible collection, which just launched with bracelets and rings in October. It also will debut new Picchiotti Classics designs and new styles of Xpandables and Gem Ceramics at the show.
“We had a wonderful time and a very successful show at the inaugural Haute Jewels Geneva event last year,” said Maria Carola Picchiotti, Marketing Director of Picchiotti. “The intimacy and exclusivity of the event, coupled with the prestige of all 18 luxury jewelry brands who will be exhibiting create a unique environment for buyers and allows us to sell jewelry the Picchiotti way–with sophistication, delight, and our distinctive personal touch.”
What unites these brands is that they are top experts in their respective areas of expertise, Hakimian said. They also are united in their devotion to craftsmanship and artistry.
“We are delighted that Haute Jewels Geneva will be returning in 2023. The 2022 edition was a resounding success and marked the start of an exciting new chapter for the jewelry industry,” Hakimian said.
The 2023 Watches and Wonders event also will take place in Geneva from March 27 through April 2, 2023. Organizers of this watchmaking destination event are adding days for the public to visit on April 1 and 2, 2023, it said on its website.
