Sparkling Sensations

Mattia Cielo

Ghiaccio - The collection that blazed the titanium trail in jewellery, teaming amazing wearability with bold shapes, is here expressed in the distinctive modularity of the shuttles that rhythmically make up his jewels. Research pushes towards new techniques that produce gorgeously precious yet lightweight objects.

Jacob & Co.

Inspired by Andalusian Stallions and the ornate detailing of traditional Spanish tack, Jacob & Co.’s stirrup, or “Estribo” collection, offers a bold, yet elegant take on the exquisite adornment practices of Spanish equestrians. Translating the desires of the rider into the motions of the horse, the estribo is the key instrument allowing the two to move together in seamless choreography. By highlighting this harmonious link between man and animal in wearable form, Jacob & Co. honours the glamorous spirit, and long-standing love affair between the Spanish and their horses, with a captivating choker, earrings, bangle and ring.


Amrapali from India presented its Lotus Legacy collection, which has been crafted in 18K yellow gold, oxidised silver and embellished with rubies and polki diamonds. The outstanding necklace pictured here (in the right) features 170.60-carats of ruby and 2.45-carats of diamond.


The Autore Metropolitan collection explores the intricate structures of the contemporary world, combining the beauty of history with the magnificence of modernity to create timeless and luxurious jewellery pieces.


The success of the iconic Rose Brooch has prompted the creation of a complete Rose Collection that has become synonymous with Picchiotti: Diamond and coloured gemstone rings, earrings, and several important necklaces such as the Tower Rose with two rows of round diamonds and an asymmetrical cascade of Burmese oval rubies towered by a fabulous diamond rose, are just a few samples of this versatile, floral-inspired collection.


A rare collection of conscientiously handpicked natural pink sapphires combine with diamonds into one ethereal necklace. The necklace is crafted in 145 cabochon-cut pink sapphires - 379.15-carats, 905 diamonds - 32.61-carats and, 18K two-tone gold -168.91 grams.

Roberto Demeglio

Roberto Demeglio introduced an evolution of JOY, a bracelets and rings collection with a strong visual impact, a series of creations whose elegance is undeniable, an expression of luxury to be worn every day. Emblem of the collection, the lips ring, an elegantly sensual jewel faithful to the purity of the gold as a precious and eternal material, astonishes nd shines in shades of dark red thanks to its many rubies. Completely hand drawn, the design is inspired by the voluptuous and sensual lips of Angelina Jolie. The Joy ring is available in two sizes, up to 3,83 carats. Mounted on a spring and covered by hundreds of small rose gold hoops, the ring perfectly fits any kind and size of finger, a key feature for a practical jewel to wear every day, that maintain endless class and elegance.

Victor Mayer

Victor Mayer presented Tropicana collection consisting of lockets, produced with an unusual degree of craftsmanship. Perhaps only the wearer knows that these sleek pendants can also be opened. A clever mechanism inside acts as a frame for two photographs; each locket is a trove for personal memories. Expressive colour gradients in fire enamel are carefully applied by hand using the so-called Basse-taille technique. The artist creates a low-relief pattern in metal. Tiny bars of gold delineate each field, providing the overall impression of the motif. In two models the cool-looking, organic diamond pavée creates a dramatic contrast to the colour of the enamel. The reverse side of the lockets is equally adorned with enamels over floral motives.


From the pocket tool to masculine pendant – the MEISTER men’s accessories offer modern men an array of different options. Harmoniously the MEISTER design team combines titanium, named after the race of Greek deities, the Titans, with other metals such as 750 gold or the finest Damascus steel and other materials. A cool sense of aesthetics is demonstrated by 150–180 million-year-old, petrified wood set in titanium or fossilised dinosaur bones as an amulet.


With its Caleidoscopio collection, Chantecler wants to translate the natural richness and the colourful nuances of Capri through a spectacular piece of jewellery. The combinations are willingly bold and captivating in order to transmit Capri’s wonderful colours at dawn and at night, and the colours of its crystalline sea. At the same time the collection is a reflection of the incredible kaleidoscope of cultures, and diversity that come to this “pearl of the Mediterranean” every year.

Maria Kovadi Fine Jewellery

Created exclusively for Baselworld 2016, Animali collection explores the charm and the magic of the animal world in an ironic way, with a modern take on the classic creatures. Playful animals in this mesmerising collection not only represent life mysteries and ancient wisdom but also carry various positive symbolic associations.

Polina Sapouna-Ellis

Polina Sapouna-Ellis presented her New Tethrippon Collection in Baselworld 2016. Tethrippon Collection is inspired by an amazing sculpture of Classical period in the Museum of Acropolis. Polina’s individually handcrafted jewellery is mostly inspired by the austere simplicity of the Doric style and the geometric motifs of ancient Greek art. It evokes ancient pieces, yet encompasses both modern and futuristic elements, forming her unique and authentic signature.


The Monochrome Collection, by Bayco, consists of jewels designed around the concept that each piece be crafted using one specific colour, therefore creating a simple yet elegant way for a woman to express herself. The concept behind The Monochrome Lotus Collection is creating a large and beautiful jewel around a smaller gem-quality center stone using the monochromatic style. Diamonds are then used to accentuate the shape of the jewel, therefore balancing the final look of the piece.


Boucheron Couture 2016 marks the addition of larger scale designs including more animal motifs such as these 18 carat white gold, diamond and black lacquer Hirunda earrings. Other pieces include a rose gold hedgehog cuff, swan bracelets and parrot earrings. The bracelet Cypris, the swan, seems full of movement thanks to the precision of the engraving that creates different layers of plumage. Cypris, the swan bracelets offer the possibility of being worn together, head to tail on the wrist, so that their sumptuous feathers interplay and transform themselves into a single, magnificent set.

Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein’s Beyond collection is inspired by planetary orbit. This sleek and progressive jewellery set is cast in polished stainless steel for a futuristic look.


The Emotion Collection, infused with intense colour, explores the intellectual and artistic richness of Fabergé’s world. These bold and daring jewels push the boundaries of design and craftsmanship in true Fabergé spirit.
