Constantin Wild – Proud to be at Baselworld 2019

The Baselworld 2019 this coming Spring is a fixed date in Constantin Wild´s Trade Fair calendar. The well-known dealer in gemstones has been part of this major trade show for jewellery and watches for the last 30 years. Then traditionally, watches, jewellery and gems belong together. In the forseeable future, gemstones will play an even greater role in Basel. Over the years, Baselworld has established itself as a meeting point for the international jewellery scene and has developed from a pure ordering event to an event platform. Gemstones are currently more in demand than ever before. „I am pleased to say, that the immense importance hereof is mirrored in the trade fair communications“, states Constantin Wild, who manages the company bearing his name in the 10th generation.

No jewellery without a gem
When expensive watches and designer jewellery meet, the basic ingredient obviously has to be there too: top-quality gemstones. The best known brands, the most renowned buyers and the most influential media will be coming together. Sales are traditionally excellent in the environment of the big brands. „We appreciate the new concept with its stronger focus on innovation and digital communication“, Wild emphasises.

Colour Trends 2015

Dear gemstone lovers,

there are two things we often long for: sunshine, and the opportunity to relax. Fortunately, the colour trends for the forthcoming spring and summer season promise both at the same time!

Every year, the Pantone Color Institute publishes current colour trends, and the entire world of fashion allows itself to be guided by them. The theme for sun-drenched days next year is ‘en plein air’. Our everyday life, which seems to be becoming more and more dynamic, demands a good deal of us. So hues named ‘aquamarine’, ‘lucite green’ and ‘tangerine’ give us exactly the compensation we need.

It goes without saying that Mother Nature can easily keep pace when it comes to colour trends. A glance into my treasure chamber provides proof of that!

Seductive blue

The colour ‘aquamarine’ marks the beginning of the Pantone range. Is there a gemstone lover who is not familiar with the stone of the same name?

Springtime – Baselworld highlights 2015

Dear gemstone lovers,

harmony, contentedness, eternity. Many people associate the colour blue with these concepts. In my treasure chamber there are some exclusive highlights which are every bit as beautiful as a bright summer sky!

A shine like no other: blue zircon

Constantin Wild - Zircon - cushion - 38ct -ONLINE-rgb-725px

There is hardly a stone with such a high refraction as zircon. And this comes out particularly well when the stone is blue. With its diamantine shine and its unbelievable optical depth, the blue zircon is an absolute highlight in my current collection ‘more than just rare’. The stone originates from Cambodia, weighs 38 carats and measures 18 by 15 millimetres, and sparkles in a star and step cut.  A genuine cushion-shaped heavyweight! A stone of this size and quality is very rare – and predestined to be a collector’s item for that reason.  Continue reading Springtime – Baselworld highlights 2015

30 years of INTERGEM!

Constantin has come up with some fitting highlights!

Dear Gemstone Lovers,

When I opened my exhibition stand at the first INTERGEM, it was 1984. And today, the trade fair in Idar-Oberstein is still a red-letter day for me, an appointment not to be missed. On the occasion of the 30-year jubilee I am therefore bringing a really top-class stone with me: An imperial topaz of over 30 carats seems to me to be just the right thing for this occasion! Alongside some other sparkling and exclusive stones, I am donating an unusual set in the shape of the INTERGEM logo for the visitors’ prize.

Just the right thing: a 30-carat star!

More than just valuable: the emperor from Brazil

Dear gemstone lovers,

there are stones which really are something special. And some of them are far rarer than diamonds. I’d like to tell you about just such a stone today because, with me and the imperial topaz, it was love at first sight!

Nomen est omen

Truly imperial: my first encounter with this radiant reddish-gold rarity was back in the 80s, on a trip to Ouro Preto, in the well known federal Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. When I first saw the special sparkle of this stone, I understood at once why my father had referred to the Brazilian imperial topaz as his favourite!

Brazil –> Idar-Oberstein: journey of an emperor

Dear gemstone lovers,

gemstones are my profession. My passion. And, yes, they’re all magnificent. But among them there is one which has a really special appeal for me, with its reddish-gold tones and its sparkle: the emperor from Brazil.Constantin Wild - Imperial Topaz 20ct - rgb-725px

The incomparable imperial topaz was discovered in the mid-18th century in Ouro Preto, the ‘home town’ of topazes, in Brazil. Imperial topaz – the very name is magical, isn’t it? Noble too. And yet it’s by no means certain how the stone came to get it. Perhaps the Russian tsars were the force behind it. They were among the earliest and most important buyers of this rarity. Others say that the stone wasn’t named until the time of the Brazilian empire, i.e. between 1822 and 1889. In other words, nobody really knows exactly. Having said that, one thing is certain: today, the imperial topaz is still among the most valuable and most coveted stones worldwide.
