What is GEMGENEVE? The name has been circulating on social networks for a few weeks #GemGeneve, everybody is asking: “Have you been to GemGeneve? Everyone wants to know what is behind this word game. The first edition of GemGeneve took place from May 10th to 13th in Geneva in the Palexpo.

A new wind blew on the secret world of gemstones and jewelry, a desire to share and highlight this universe with a modern and elegant fair that respects the intimate codes of the Jewelry sector.

Thomas Faerber and Roni Totah are the founders; two great collectors and gem dealers in colored stones, diamonds, old and historical jewels. Faerber embodies the 4th generation of the eponymous company and Totah joined the home of Teddy Horovitz in the 80s. They combined their talents and knowledge of the sector to create a fair that highlights gemstones, historical jewels and emerging talents.

“I had the deep conviction that Europe needed a fair that was not too big, but of the highest quality, which represents our sector.”  Thomas Faerber

Created by the profession for the profession, GEMGENEVE is also a trade show for an insiders and collectors audience. GEMGENEVE is not intended to supplant Baselworld, Vicenza Oro or the Biennale des Antiquaires, but aims to represent a sector of the profession which was lacking in the other shows.

We are delighted to have been invited to this first edition and thus discover talents of high jewelry brought to light by this show.

A jewelry fair dedicated to professionals and insiders

Gemgeneve welcomed during 4 days over 140 exhibitors including notorious antique jewelry dealers, a fine selection of gemstone specialists, as well as manufacturers who collaborate with some of the most prestigious “Maisons”.

Among the gemstone dealers, there was Piat who specializes in colored gems. Emmanuel Piat was nominated in 2018 vice president of the commission of colored stones at the CIBJO (the world jewelry confederation).

At the heart of the show was the “Designer Showcase ” curated by the journalist Vivienne Becker who highlighted the emerging talents of the Swiss and international fine jewelry scene.

At 25, this French Designer already has everything of a great artist. He swarms with ideas and creativity using aluminum and new techniques for an hallucinating rendering with high quality stones. Keep an eye out for his jewels as they are certainly worth collecting !

We loved the ingenuity of the Caspita House who collaborates with a young designer, Ludovic Lesemann, who hid in a simple pendant, a pair of earrings, a ring and a bracelet. He revolutionizes transformable jewels and challenges technique. We also love his sun necklace that transforms into a moon and the poetry of his work.

“I do not design, I invent!” says Ludovic Lesemann.

The Swiss designer Nadia Morgenthaler, normally known for her contemporary style, surprised us with a collection of high-end baroque rock jewelry and a technical achievement which is absolutely impeccable.
