Every year in autumn the town of Idar-Oberstein is in thrall to the world of gemstones. Then, over a four-day period, some 155 exhibitors from Germany and abroad come to the Intergem trade fair to present the finest gemstones and gemstone jewellery.
In a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere jewellers, goldsmiths, designers and jewellery manufacturers can browse a unique selection of gemstones, diamonds and pearls, fine engravings, objets d’art and jewellery incorporating coloured stones and diamonds.
The latest products of gemstone mines from around the world are presented here in both traditional and contemporary settings.
The range is rounded off with a rich array of accessories, equipment and services for the gemstone business. Presentations and lectures from top-level experts and attractive social events lend this special trade fair a unique flair.
Young talent is also present: young, innovative gemstone and jewellery designers present ever-surprising design ideas; modern, fresh and of high quality.
They represent a further highlight of this unique fair, at which traditional cutting techniques and more modern aspects unite harmoniously.
For over two decades now, a visit to the Intergem has been a pleasant obligation in the calendar of the industry as a whole. Many of the exhibitors – well-known companies from the gemstone region and international trading companies – attend the most significant fairs and exhibitions around the globe, in the process obtaining an outstanding overview of current trends in fashion, colour and gemstones, as well as the preferences of the consumer.
They present gemstones and gemstone jewellery that reflect the top colours of the fashion world. In this remarkable atmosphere specialist retailers can not only obtain targeted information on all facets of gemstones and refresh their range with an eye to the forthcoming Christmas period. Direct contact with traders and cutters also means that they are ideally placed to develop new design ideas.
