The trip itinerary
If there’s one thing every gem dealer does often, it’s TRAVEL! And it’s true that the world of gemstones gives us unique experiences around the world! I was able to closely follow how tourmaline is the most desired gemstone in 2022.
I returned a few days ago from 3 intense weeks with stop in Los Angeles, Miami, and finally Idar-Oberstein and today I share with you the lessons that I learned and the topo trends at high end jewelry
My first stop was in the middle of the summer in Los Angeles, right after the Las Vegas JCK Show, one of the most traditional in the sector! Besides the business meetings, I had the opportunity to have dinner with local friends, from Kenya and even a jazz festival!
My second stop mas Miami, I was impressed by the city`s strength and got to the see the TIME CENTURY Jewelry Center, a center specializing in gems and jewelry in the heart of Miami.
And my last stop was the iconic city of Idar-Oberstein in Germany, the origin of all knowledge of gemstone cutting in the world! Also I had the opportunity to meet my friends during the celebration of 175 years of the company Constantin Wild with a history that inspires. And I couldn’t miss the opportunity to try the best riesling wines at the century-old Bamberger winery.
Tourmaline the most desired gemstone in 2022
In addition to incredible experiences, the great demand undoubtedly comes down to a special gemstone: tourmaline! The most desired gemstone.
Among the numerous types of gemstones found in nature, tourmaline stands out for its wide variety of colors. It is no nonsense to say that tourmaline can be found in every color of the rainbow. And Brazil is favored by the fact that we have the largest deposits of this gem in the world!
Despite the wide color spectrum, the most desired tones are light green (mint color); blue-green; the indigo blue of the Indicolites and the neon of the Paraibas.
Besides the demand for the most beautiful tourmalines, the demand for mixing colored gemstones was unanimous also. Color, color and more color!
I selected some tourmalines that best reflect this amazing trip!
