Many of the pieces on display at Baselworld 2015 reflect outstanding design, exceptional innovations, craftsmanship and use of materials. Baselshows would like to present you some highlights from this year’s show !
It was difficult to choose the best designs for the tradeshow because every single one was outstanding. In fact, a handful of companies provided several items that could have dominated a top 50 list by itself.
Among the brands that brought it’s “A Game” to Baselworld this year was Fabergé. The company exhibited several high jewelry collections reminiscent of the Fabergé of old, including a candy-colored collection of jewels called “Secret Garden.” Natalia Shugaeva, Fabergé’s head designer, said she wanted to create a collection of jewels that are opulent and refined. She succeeded.
The word most commonly used to describe the work of other famous designer of Fawaz Gruosi and his high jewelry brand, De Grisogono, is “insane.” But we think about it in a very positive sense. His singular creative designs have won the brand fame throughout the world and this year at Baselworld there were several ultra-imaginative masterpieces on displays. It’s almost become typical to expect the wonderfully unexpected from De Grisogono. The accompanying slide show has one of the brand’s new pieces but we wanted to also include a piece from last year that we missed and others may have as well. It’s called the “Crazy Skull” jewelry watch. Check out the picture !
Another one! Chopard unveiled its High Jewelry Collection at Baselworld and even among the selection of jewelry destined for Red Carpet events one piece was really unique. An ocean blue ring featuring a 41.57-carat oval shaped paraíba tourmaline from Mozambique and 8.8-carats of diamonds set in a lace-work of 18k white gold. Impressed yet?
Georg Jensen and its managing director of jewelry, Meeling Wong, created several collections of refined jewelry that reinterpret the traditional designs of the famed silversmith brand. Among the items that stood out was a collection of pieces in collaboration with colored gemstone mining company, Gemfields.
