Now in its third year, JeweLuxe Singapore is back with a bigger, star-studded line-up of over 80 renowned jewellery designers, craftsmen and brands. With it, a whopping US$150 million (S$200 million) worth of jewellery and timepieces will be on display outside Ngee Ann City from 11 to 20 October.
The 10-day fair is separated into two editions to showcase the many facets of jewellery: the first spotlighting rare gems and fine jewellery and the next zooming in on quality savoir-faire.
Besides the promise of exquisite creations (and accompanying eye-watering prices), JeweLuxe will also see the Asia debuts of some laudable names in the world of fine jewellery.
Most noteworthy from this line-up is Lorenz Bäumer, the man who was behind some of Louis Vuitton and Chanel’s haute joaillerie collections. At his eponymous jewellery house, Bäumer realised some magnificent creations such as Princess Charlène of Monaco’s contemporary wedding tiara and his signature bejewelled beetle brooches.
Also joining him are award-winning designers Alessio Boschi (with his architecture-inspired creations), Paolo Costagli (famed for geometric designs) and ‘jeweller to the stars’ Fred Leighton whose pieces often grace red carpet events.Household names aside, the fair is also about uncovering ‘hidden gems’ — talented jewellers and jewellery houses that are emerging or have not been as prominent on social media. The Rawluxe Revolution showcase by JeweLuxe offers a dedicated platform for such designers and will see scintillating introductions to Nadine Aysoy’s oeuvre and Faye Jewellery’s collections.
There is more than just ‘trade affairs’ at JeweLuxe. The fair is ultimately still geared towards connoisseurs and enthusiasts as well.
Interspersed in between, JeweLuxe introduces new highlights. The Savoir Series, a signature at every JeweLuxe fair, sees a line-up of programmes taking participants through talks with leading curators, designers and watchmakers.
A new personalised service by the JeweLuxe Concierge will also offer customers looking to freshen up old jewellery with new designs the chance to find suitable match-ups with jewellery designers at the fair.
JeweLuxe Singapore will be held at the Tent @ Ngee Ann City from 11 to 20 October 2019. Programmes and concierge services can be pre-registered at www.jeweluxesingapore.com
