GENEVA, Switzerland – The fourth edition of GemGenève, which runs from May 5-8, 2022, has seen a strong turnout from international visitors from the outset, signalling brisk enquiries and orders despite a backdrop of pandemic, and war in Ukraine.


Opening ceremony

The show, featuring more than 200 exhibition booths, has attracted the crème de la crème of high-end coloured gemstone and jewellery suppliers, with a strong presence of purveyors of antique and vintage jewellery pieces, many of which are signed by the world’s top maisons. The stands featured a remarkable variety of magnificent and rare coloured gemstones.

Co-founders Ronny Totah and Thomas Faerber have expressed confidence in the health of the top end of the gemstone and jewellery markets despite a dampened mood caused by the war.

A number of top end jewellery designers were spotted moving around the Palexpo exhibition halls seeking stones for their latest one-off masterpieces.

The Designer Vivarium, curated by jewellery historian and editor Vivienne Becker, showcased cutting-edge creations by seven “under the radar” designers from around the world.

The show offers a series of panel presentations on themes related to the history of jewellery and gemstones, led by well-known industry speakers.
