Gems and jewellery have always been very important at Baselworld. Constantin Wild has been exhibiting at this major trade show for jewellery and watches for more than 30 years now. Reason enough for the Swiss TV station telebasel to visit the renowned gemstone expert at this year’s Baselworld to discuss his view on gems and jewellery playing an even greater role at the world’s luxury fair.
“Though the overall number of exhibitors has decreased, high-street jewellers continue to present their latest innovations and creations, whilst international gem traders exhibit gems of outstanding quality. As long as the major international jewellery buyers attend Baselworld, the fair will continue to be one of the major hotspots in the worldwide gem and jewel industry”, emphasises Constantin Wild.

As most sapphires come in blue, orange sapphires are extremely rare and sheer beauties. And as if that weren’t enough, the elegant treasures also match with ‚Living Coral‘ – colour of the year 2019, named by the Pantone Institute, the world’s leading authority on colour.
Gold mines are everywhere in the cityscape of Johannesburg. Naturally enough, we do not see what goes on below the surface; but piled up above it there are enormous table mountains – the waste tips. That always made me curious. I didn’t actually get the opportunity to visit a mine until now, eight years later. At a tourism portal on the Internet I happened on a feature offered by the Cullinan Mine near Pretoria, in which they do guided tours of the mine site and also a visit below ground. My interest was aroused immediately and I duly booked a tour. On a Saturday in November I set off to Pretoria together with a friend, and then on to Cullinan, forty kilometres further east.
