Live Coverage: Baselworld New Jewelry

Over the past couple of days, I’ve seen some jewelry that is stunning enough to spark the interest of even the hardest-hit portfolio owners. Jewelry designers have responded to the times with some creative looks like polished selections of rough stone cuts, highly technical settings masked by beautiful stone mosaics, flexible gold jewelry to accommodate an extra pound or two on frames, and more. And while this show may be a tad light on traffic, the new pieces shown are sure to have the absent retailers second-guessing their decisions to stay home.
