Outstanding artistry. One-of-a-kind designs. The ultimate in master craftsmanship. The last word in contemporary avant-garde. These are just some of the phrases that have been used to describe the World Jewelry Facets exhibition—the international event in the world of jewelry design, now in its fifth year.
Curated by Swarovski, over two hundred fabulous jewelry pieces from seventy designers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, Erickson Beamon and Ben Amun, went on display at impressive venues in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Las Vegas and Paris. Showcasing the best of the best, the touring exhibition reveals a level of crystal creativity and unimaginable glamour that’s simply unparalleled in jewelry design the world over. It’s where you go to dream and find inspiration.
But for those of us unlucky to have missed the chance to dream and be inspired, a stunning selection of commercial jewelry, displayed alongside the inspirational showpieces at the exhibition, can be found at Cadenzza, Atelier Swarovski and Swarovski. Here’s a peek at some of the highlights of World Jewelry Facets 2014.
