SINGAPORE JEWELFEST 2016 — TRENDSPOTTING

The First Edition of Singapore Jewelfest just wrapped up, showcasing some of the rarest gems and jewellery from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. From Caratell’s Van Gogh necklace to Hans D. Krieger’s rare, natural coloured diamonds and gemstones, the First Edition offered a broad selection of masterpieces for every desire, mood, and, of course, budget.

Tassels took centre stage during the First Edition, with Dilys’, Zydo, Jaipore Jewels, and Scavia setting the trends. Non-conformist and free-spirited, tassel jewels — whether dangling off ears or caressing your neck, reveal a true fashionista style.

  As the Second Edition rolls in, we see a lot of big stones and vivid colours in the jewellery selection. The Jewel Box’s 38.3ct morganite pendant and 20.4ct rubellite necklace are not to be missed, so is Hans D. Krieger’s 36.73ct stunning tanzanite ring. In one corner of their booth, Paolo Costagli’s 19.75ct colour change tourmaline ring from the Valentina collection simply commands attention. Dazzling in their verdant brilliance, Caratell’s 22ct tourmaline earrings can be seen even from afar.
