Jewelry Innovations at Baselworld 2015

We’ve talked about Baselworld and about a few highlights that have been presented and showed the world for the first time. Like Breguet’s new traditional watch, or the Diamond Dial: Transformable Timepiece.

Today we are talking about the innovations in the world of luxury jewelry. There have been quite a few presentations in the biggest watch and jewelry show of the year.

After all the talks about the new Apple watch and new partnerships to create new smartwatches, some feel relieved that jewelry is allowed to continue its age-old function that is the adornment. Even so, jewellers presented new pieces that stood out in the show.

Nikos Koulis the Greek jeweler, for instance, created a range of engagement rings that dare to introduce the ideas of negative space and black enamel into the vocabulary of romance.

Another great jeweler, is Moritz Glik, a Brazilian-born New Yorker, who places diamonds inside sapphire crystal orbs and cases. Some of the pieces have hints of vintage styling, but Glik offers a tantalising glimpse into the world of futuristic jewelry concepts.

Finally, there is the Pearl House Yoko, who does away with tradition and places a white, round pearl in the center of a cuff bracelet made up of nothing more than three slender bands of diamond-set white gold.
