VOJ, T.GOLD AND VO VINTAGE, THE NEW “TIME”
A world-renowned business showcase, a place for global networking, trends, innovation, information and training for the entire jewellery supply chain, Vicenzaoro January has opened its doors together with T.Gold, the international jewellery technology and machinery exhibition. Among the novelties, the new TIME community: a business space specifically for contemporary watchmaking and its supply chain, further enhancing Vicenzaoro’s B2B offer in the timepiece sector with around fifty exhibitors including established brands, micro-brands and start-ups with high creative content, components, accessories, instruments and after-sales equipment. Lastly, VO Vintage , the marketplace for fine vintage watches and jewellery (the latter will be open to the public from 20th to 23rd January).
VOJ, REVEALS JEWELLERY TRENDS
A reference event for international trends and for presenting new collections at the beginning of the year, Vicenzaoro January 2023, like a boutique without end, showcases contemporary jewellers’ avant-garde sense for fragmented lines, precious stones and diamond puzzles, broken crystals and complex geometries, the result of the technological development of 3D printing and nanotechnology in jewellery. Items grow in volume and complexity but retain lightness. Polished and satin surfaces alternate with diamond pavé. The colours are vibrant and all pay homage to nature with significant incursions into the iconography of 1920s cinema, when geometry was simultaneously synonymous with audacity and elegance.
Vicenzaoro January gathers together the top brands of high-end jewellery with new collections, gold jewellery with the best of Made in Italy production from the main national manufacturing districts and international excellence. Among the protagonists at Vicenzaoro are leading brands such as Damiani, Roberto Coin, Crivelli, FOPE, Leo Pizzo and Annamaria Cammilli. Confirming Vicenzaoro’s international air is the presence of leading names in high jewellery from all over the world: from Niessing, AWKN1 or the new entries PDPAOLA from Spain, the German company Coeur de Lion and the French Aurélie Bidermann alongside consolidated presences such as Amen, Brosway, Bronzallure and Unoaerre.
