Months of preparations for IJL 2016 led to our most successful year yet, as we launched six stunning new designs, treating press and buyers to a dazzling show of wristwear, rings and earrings.
Our stand was hard to miss – a wonderously lifelike moon played host to some of the shows biggest hits – our sparkling new Clair de Lune Coleur collection. We also launched some beautiful new pieces, some never before seen and others an elaboration on popular collections.
It has to be said, there were two clear winners. One of them, naturally, was The Chapiteau de Paraiba – an unabashed expression of the indulgence of Versailles, dripping diamonds and pure drama, courtesy of the alluring blue Paraiba tourmaline, glimmering pink stones, cool, mint green tourmaline and diamonds crowned with its unique hexagonal setting.
The other was the diamond drop earrings now part of the Clair de Lune collection – an elegant drop of inverted crescent moons, set at the end of a stream of glittering diamonds.
Pieces like these that ensured a steady stream of visitors over the three-day event. As we washed down delicious macarons with equally delicious prosecco, we attracted several new retailers, including some international interest.
So of course there’s been no let up since the hectic preparations for IJL. We wouldn’t have it any other way – 2016’s brilliant IJL has led to some exciting meetings and discussions with retailers, the reason we’re looking forward to IJL 2017 so much!
