To experience the world of gemstones is to experience the world of Constantin Wild.
When visiting Constantin Wild, he rolls out the red carpet to dive into this special world. Part of the gem world is the town Idar-Oberstein – especially the German Gemstone Museum – based right opposite Constantin Wild`s birthhouse. The very exterior of the museum, housed in a jugendstil villa, takes your breath away. On three floors, it provides a home to all the gems of the world. Constantin Wild regales his guests with stories about the genesis and the processing of these colourful minerals, which were discovered centuries ago. At that time, it took a gemstone prospector a year to dig even a meter into the hillside and extract the exquisite stones from the earth. Hopefully your piece of jewelry won`t take as long as that.
The June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair (June Fair) is celebrating its 33th anniversary in 2020. Reputed as one of Asia’s top three fine jewellery events, the June Fair attracts thousands of visitors from around the world every year.
Constantin Wild will present exclusive colourful gemstones at Grand Hall, Stand B11.

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.
