Enchanté: the savoir-vivre edition of the Gem Journal 2017

Hot off the press: the ‘savoir-vivre’ edition of the Gem Journal.

May I invite you on a fascinating journey this time too? What city embodies that feeling of luxury better than Paris, the ‘capital of haute-joaillerie’? Yet even the most magnificent item of jewellery needs a perfectly cut stone: so what a good thing Idar-Oberstein is not far away. Quite apart from which it’s possible to live a life of luxury in my home town too. In my magazine, you can find out plenty of things worth knowing about Franco-German gemstone history. And you’ll also see that my chamber contains some sparkling treasures in the colours of the tricolore

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
