Last week I took part in Inhorgenta Munich jewelry fair!
This exhibition has always excited me both as a visitor and, now, as a presenter. In this enormous jewelry fair, many jewelry designers like myself could learn that it was possible to create modern fine-jewelry designs using gold, platinum and diamonds. They were the first to pave the way to new jewelry concepts as opposed to the traditional Italian jewelry. The emphasis was on innovative designs which maintain high quality and a perfect finish.
In each visit there I learn new things about the European design as a whole, and German design in particular. The exceptional precision is expressed in the jewelry and presentation. That is where I first discovered my favorite jewelry designers.
I was introduced to Niessing at Inhorgenta 20 years ago, was invited to visit their amazing factory, and became their representative in Israel. I was honored when they asked me to exhibit my own jewelry designs in their store on Madison Avenue in New York. It was a fruitful cooperation that started thanks to Inhorgenta.
Inhorgenta is first and foremost a commercial show, displaying all of the major jewelry brands in the world, but it has an important role in the world of contemporary jewelry design. It is a dynamic exhibition giving a platform for young designers as well as established ones.
Here is a short clip from my exhibition...
