Trends to Watch at Baselworld 2015

By Zahra Al-Kateb

CCC_3305Baselworld 2015 – the world’s most highly acclaimed jewelry and watch show – is currently underway in Switzerland, showcasing the latest trends and inspiration to over 150,000 attendees.

Consistently recognized as the most important marketplace for the world’s watch and jewelry industry, Baselworld brings together leading prestigious designers and new emerging talent, with over 1,500 brands from across 40 countries. Baselworld  provides a platform for guests to admire their innovations, creations and latest collections. Designers expected to attended include Patek Philippe, Harry Winston, Chopard, Bulgari and many more.

The event will also go beyond the world of watches and jewelry, showcasing diamonds, gemstones and pearls. In particular, guests can expect to see an abundance of diamonds this year, with the diamond market expected to grow in the
foreseeable future. A growing gap between supply and demand is expected as a result of anticipated demand growth driven by China, India and the United States.

High-end jewelry design has seen plenty of color, so guests can also expect to see colorful gemstones dominating the market. Finally, better quality, bigger sized pearls are in constant demand, particularly from Asia, resulting in short supply. Golden South Sea pearls have seen prices increase in the past four years, with natural events like the super typhoon in the Philippines affecting prices.
