    Here is a recap of my favourite pieces that I came across during past couple of months starting from Hong Kong Diamond & Jewellery Show in March to BaselWorld 2016, Luxury by JCK & Couture Show 2016 in Las Vegas.

    • Hong Kong March show is the second most important diamond & jewellery show that takes place in Hong Kong, right after the September show. The halls were packed with visitors and of course it was a sea of exhibitors starting from melee stones to extraordinary 50cts and above in rare colors and qualities. Jewellery show was similar in terms of exhibitors, there were jewelleres from all around the globe starting with semi-costume types to superb high-end brands and then rare vintage and antique pieces. You can view all my Hong Kong posts by searching #ChampagneGemGoesToHongKong on Instagram. Here are my top 5 from Hong Kong March Show:

    • BaselWorld 2016 was my first Basel World experience and needless to say until last day I couldn’t digest the how magnificent the show was, from the brands display which were phenomenal to new reveals in watch industry, the world of high-end jewellery and finally the sea of loose stone dreams, everything about BaselWorld was magnificent. During the Basel marathon, I came across some incredible watches and high-end jewellery that you can see most of them by searching #ChampagneGemGoesToBasel on Instagram.

    • Luxury By JCK 2016 fast forward to June and once again Las Vegas opened its doors to not one but 3 different annual shows, first stop was Luxury By JCK where the number of exhibitors were endless and if you could move fast enough through the hallways you would be able to get a glimpse of the phenomenal pieces that were up for display. I can’t emphasis enough that I needed at least 3 more days to be somewhat confident that I have seen at least 50% of the exhibitors by passing by their booth! after all it is the most important diamond and jewellery show in Northern America. Search #ChampagneGemGoesToLasVegas & #Luxury2016 to see my findings and here are my top 10 from Luxury by JCK 2016:




    • Couture Show 2016 is happening along side the JCK each year with a very important difference, Couture is more emphasizing on design and creativity in jewellery. High end brands displaying their newly launched collections in luxury villas in Wynn along with lavish booths with amazing set up and layout that is so welcoming to walk through and enjoy the finest pieces of high-end jewellery in luxurious location that they should be. My Couture experience was rather short but in that limited time I managed to view enough pieces to be convinced that next year I have to spend more time at Couture! Search #ChampagneGemGoesToLasVegas & #Couture2016 to see few incredible pieces that my limited time allowed to view and here are my top 10 from Couture 2016:
