Strong & Precious art foundation will be making its third appearance at GemGenève this year, presenting yet another meticulously curated project that is set to astound and captivate its audience. Entitled "How Precious UA", the project shines a light on the rich tapestry of Ukrainian culture as a whole, showcasing and vividly depicting its rapid cultural development since time immemorial.

The presentation will showcase beloved and well-known national symbols such as wheat, sunflowers, storks and many more, painting a vivid picture of Ukraine's rich cultural history.

Ukrainian culture has a rich history and strong appreciation for its cultural heritage, which it passes down through memory and significant artifacts. Strong & Precious aims to showcase this authenticity and reinvention over time, seamlessly integrating into the contemporary era,’ — share the founders Olga and Natasha. — ‘Through centuries, people have carried pieces of their identity through powerful symbols in pottery, folk clothing, music, and jewelry. The jewelry presented at the exhibition represents a fusion of the past and present, creating a path towards the future by using strong national symbols and the spirit of our culture. Most pieces are made with topaz from the Ukrainian Volyn deposit, renowned for its unique color, which adds to the authenticity of our designs.’

At this year's exhibition, the Strong & Precious art foundation will present six breathtaking pieces that epitomize the intersection of traditional Ukrainian culture and contemporary design. This masterful fusion of past and present is a true testament to the foundation's unwavering commitment to showcasing the timeless beauty of Ukraine's cultural heritage.

A selection of both big and small brands in Ukrainian industry will be showcased at the event, including Nomis Jewelry,  Inesa KovalovaDrutis JewelryGunia Project and Yuval Studios.

It is the main item of the exhibition, created especially for the How precious UA.

The designers behind these creations drew inspiration from the natural beauty of Ukraine, its rich architectural heritage, and the captivating artistry of visual art. By seamlessly integrating these elements with traditional symbols, they have created a truly stunning collection that captures the essence of Ukraine's rich cultural heritage. The exhibition promises to be a true feast for the senses, a celebration of Ukraine's vibrant and storied cultural history, expertly brought to life through the art of contemporary jewelry design.
