2022, November 11
More than 5,000 people attended the Swiss gem and jewelry fair’s fifth edition from November 3 to 6, according to preliminary figures from organizers — over 7% more than the previous event, which took place in May. There were also 176 exhibitors, slightly below May’s numbers.
“The market is very good,” GemGenève cofounder Thomas Faerber told reporters on the eve of the show, citing his own experiences this year with his company, the Faerber Collection, which specializes in exceptional gems and antique jewelry. “We have had a very good year so far. I am confident that this edition of GemGenève will be a successful one.”
The overall mood was optimistic at the event, which took place at Palexpo, near the Geneva airport. Exhibitors’ stands were busy from the outset, with vibrant networking going on throughout the fair. Impressive results at recent high-value jewelry auctions in Geneva helped boost spirits, as did the buoyant demand from the May show.
