THE FANTASTIC TWO

In convivial company, Constantin Wild, whose gemstone company bears his name, sometimes strikes up a song on his accordion. Occasionally he gives a performance ‘for fun’ together with his friend and teacher.

“For me, music is omnipresent”, says Constantin Wild. His taste goes right across the board, from jazz via rock to classical. He actually had some of the background music for his showroom composed. And music can even be heard in the garden of his holiday house – that is, if he doesn’t just happen to be playing himself at the time. Continue reading THE FANTASTIC TWO

A sparkling gift

Dear gemstone lovers,
I have some high-class holidays behind me, in the truest sense of the word. Having said that, I’m not referring to my own holiday – though that too was very nice. No, I’m talking about the vacation of two American ladies, Marilyn Pape and Shelley Bennett. The two of them paid me a visit in Idar-Oberstein last month. So how did that come about? Well, Marilyn purchased one of the famous ‘fantasy gifts’ for her daughter Shelley from the luxury department store chain Neiman Marcus: a custom locket, set with sparkling gemstones – and a three-day journey to my place in Idar-Oberstein so that she could select the right stones for herself.

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!

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?

Summer fete 2014 – thanks for the flowers

Dear friends,

magnificent colours. Intoxicating scents. It wasn’t only the vivid summer bouquets you brought that made the day (and night ;)) of July 12 so special. But above all your smiles, I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did. Here’s to the many other beautiful moments that we will celebrate together!

Sparkling  greetings,

Constantin

Dear gemstone lovers,

together with colleagues, partners, friends and faithful companions, we shall be holding a colourful summer fete in July.

We, the young and the not so young, aim to celebrate life together, with some nice music and delicious food.

The preparations are in full swing, and I’m already looking forward very much to this wonderful event.

Watch this space for a report on how it went!

Sparkling greetings,

Constantin Wild
