The record-breaking VicenzaOro exhibits why they’re Europe’s main jewellery commerce present.

The time period “record-breaking” sounds so promising! VicenzaOro, the January 2023 Uncover Extra Version, was an enormous success. Does this imply that 2023 would be the greatest yr in jewellery gross sales? Uncover extra:

Throughout my flight the day earlier than the present, from Amsterdam to Venice, I observed what number of Dutch jewelers have been boarding. Often, it’s the Schaap & Citroen crew and myself boarding alongside the weekend vacationers heading to Venice. A harbinger of what was about to occur. On Friday, the opening day, it was loopy busy from the second the present opened its doorways. 

It shocked me to an extent. I knew lots of my teaching and consultancy purchasers had outperformed Christmas gross sales in comparison with an already booming 2021 vacation season. However nonetheless, inflation causes much less disposable spending, and power costs are rocketing.

Now we have a battle in Europe, and Russia’s actions have grow to be much less predictable, inflicting a variety of guessing and worrying. Tech firms are firing their employees, and the weak spot of unregulated crypto has triggered a bear market. 

The jewellery trade is just like the canary within the coal mine. When issues are about to go sideways, we lose gross sales quickly. Nobody wants jewellery to outlive, and it is thought to be out of date in tough occasions. How come the world’s worries do not have an effect on our trade as a lot? Or higher: how come our trade is flourishing?

Based on Marco Carniello, International Exhibition Director of Jewelry & Vogue at IEG (the Italian Exhihibtion Group, organizer of the VicenzaOro present), the reason of why jewellery (and watches and luxurious) is doing so nice proper now could be complicated. 

The shockwaves despatched worldwide prior to now years, the place we needed to deal globally with huge challenges, modified how we take into consideration right this moment. We see the YOLO impact at massive (You Solely Stay As soon as). Folks not appear to postpone sure acquisitions, similar to jewellery.

On prime of that: buying a jewel or a watch might be an asset. One thing that holds or will increase in worth over time. Whereas a automobile, for instance, loses worth as quickly because it leaves the supplier.

Paola de Luca, an typically quoted Trendwatcher on this weblog and a private pal, gave as soon as once more a glimpse into the close to future. She emphasizes that the long run is not tomorrow however is going on proper now. 

Her presentation, with numerous visitor audio system, launched Dreamscapes, a fusion between digital and actuality in jewellery. A world of which she spoke in September, amongst different predictions for the long run. 

The problem with these shows is: what can the listener take away from it and apply tomorrow of their work? Most visitor audio system managed to take that pragmatic strategy into consideration; for the knowledgeable listener, there have been some nice examples and takeaways.

The principle message was this one: make no mistake, expensive jewellery folks, of dismissing metaverse and digital/ digital jewellery as one thing for players solely. Will probably be an enormous revolution in how we expertise, promote, market, and create jewellery within the upcoming decade. Just just like the rise of social media 10-15 years in the past.


Everybody at all times likes to know: what did you see? Hoping for a hidden pattern, an perception, a tip of the veil. Essentially the most important pattern I noticed is colour. Galvanic-treated gold, titanium, and enamel are sizzling. However gems are actually stealing the present. Particularly coloured gems and even diamonds; it is all about colour. 

A extra daring, brighter strategy in jewellery, typically a contact bolder and greater than earlier than. The optimism of a post-pandemic world? A sense of Carpe Diem even?

The #goldenteam of VicenzaOro is on a mission. Each version is best than the one earlier than. New codecs are tried out and measured, and investments into digital and technological options are made. As soon as upon a time, the present had a unique strategy to its guests, enjoying the monopolist function. Right this moment, underneath the steering of Marco Carniello and his staff, the present is run as a enterprise. A contemporary firm in a considerably dated constructing that can see important renovations in 2024. An organization that is aware of that advertising right this moment is about including worth to the patron: resolving issues they could have with their providing of providers.

VicenzaOro proved as soon as once more to be absolutely the chief of European jewellery commerce exhibits. A very powerful exhibition for Made in Italy jewellery, underlined by the presence of the Italian Minister Adolfo Urso (Enterprises and Mady in Italy).
