Let me be surrounded by luxury …

I can do without the necessities!” *

Dear gemstone lovers,

it’s worth having a look behind the scenes in the world of luxury. One thing’s for sure: it has many facets. A few weeks ago Professor Ho, who lectures in ‘luxury studies’ at a Chinese university, journeyed to my home town of Idar-Oberstein, bringing a high-carat delegation with her, to learn everything there is to learn about gemstones.

Raw stones, cutting-shop, perfectly cut end product: my company headquarters is the perfect place to take a look behind the scenes in the world of luxury – and that includes the exquisite buffet! The group was particularly taken with the Gem Room, in which I present exclusive customers with a fine selection of particularly rare and valuable gemstones.

On a brief excursion to the historic Weiherschleife I showed the group the origins of the gemstone industry. From the 15th century right on into the 20th, gemstones were processed on big sandstone grinding wheels – using only the force of the water from our very own Idar stream.

A visit to the marketplace in Oberstein, where there are regional delicacies of all kinds, put the finish on our perfect day.

A truly wonderful day. I look forward to a luxurious wiedersehen!

Sparkling greetings
Constantin Wild

SPARKLING GEMSTONES FOR THE AUTUMN SEASON

Dear gemstone lovers,

two stones that could not be more different: a fresh, apple green chrome tourmaline that has a calming effect on the senses, and a radiant orange sapphire pulsating with energy. Yet they have one thing in common: they are both top-class stones – and I will be presenting both at the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair and the INTERGEM fair in Idar-Oberstein in October.

Chrome Tourmaline: like some delicate spring growth

Those in the know are aware that the chrome tourmaline is an extremely rare variety of the green tourmaline. A fresh, radiant apple green, for which it has the perfect interplay of traces of chromium and vanadium to thank, is the trademark of this exquisite stone from Tanzania. As the chrome tourmaline has become a rarity, I am especially glad to be able to offer a really prime specimen of more than 30 carats. This radiant wunderkind measures some 25 by 18 millimetres, and its vivacious, natural green has been brought out to perfection by the precise star cut.

Exciting days …

Dear gemstone lovers,

days at trade fairs are exciting days, and they are often full of surprises! In June, at the Jewellery & Gem Fair, I had a chance to experience that once again. I wonder if you can guess what it was that made my appearance in Hong Kong so special this time. Apart from the many interesting discussions, it was fascinating to see how little time it took for word of the extraordinary beauty of the coloured gemstones I’d taken with me in my treasure chest to get around: ‘word-of-mouth recommendation’ is certainly the most fitting expression to describe the considerable crush round my stand in the Grand Hall!

Treasures of Nature in Hong Kong

Dear gemstone lovers,

any amount of to-ing and fro-ing, lots and lots of people, and in the middle of it all: me and my treasure chamber. As every year, I travelled – laden with sparkling stones – to the ‘Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show’ in Hong Kong.

The Asian market has been gaining in importance in the gemstone trade, and not just since yesterday. Whilst at one time only European countries and the USA were relevant for the sales market, the demand for luxury goods has been growing in Hong Kong, Mainland China and elsewhere – not least because of a financially strong upper level of society that is getting larger and larger. Apart from that, people in China have a great affinity for gemstones. Jade is regarded as a royal gemstone; the Chinese have probably been mining it and using it in jewellery and filigree art carvings since 6000 B.C. Continue reading Treasures of Nature in Hong Kong
