Next Edition of GemGenève Show Scheduled for November

The event is slated for Nov. 4-7 at Geneva’s Palexpo, coinciding with the city’s fall jewelry auctions.

Show organizers have scheduled the 2021 edition of the GemGenève gem and jewelry event for Nov. 4-7 at Palexpo in Geneva.
Geneva—The organizers of GemGenève have released dates for the next edition of the gem and jewelry show.

It is slated for Nov. 4-7 at Geneva’s Palexpo, coinciding with the city’s fall jewelry auctions.

GemGenève is now in its third year; dealers Thomas Faerber and Ronny Totah founded the show in 2018 to fill a gap they saw in the market. 

The event is open to the public and brings together diamond, gem, and jewelry dealers, gem labs, manufacturers, specialist bookshops, experts, and historians from around the world. 

More than 4,800 visitors attended its second show in 2019, according to organizers, but there was no event in 2020 due to the pandemic. 

In 2021, sections of the event will include areas such as the “Designer Vivarium,” curated by jewelry historian and author Vivienne Becker. It will present designs from a group of independent jewelry designers from all over the world.

“Emerging Talents,” meanwhile, is dedicated to rising stars in the industry, offering a younger crowd the space to exhibit and gain exposure, including through partnerships with art and jewelry schools as well as other educational institutions. 

The 2021 program will also include lectures, roundtables, seminars, and displays, similar to what the show has done in the past. 

The 2019 event, for example, included talks about identification and traceability of precious stones, a seminar on lab-grown diamonds, and conferences on Art Nouveau and Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, among other things. 

The show will be preceded by a preview event for local authorities, press, and VIPs. 

“The response and positive feedback we’ve had to the show have made all our efforts worthwhile,” Totah said. “And after a year of inactivity with the pandemic in 2020, we are happy to be able to present a new show in 2021, and we hope that it will be able to take place under the very best of auspices.”
