Dubai is veritably the City of Gold, and draws jewelry makers from all over the world to display their designs. VicenzaOro Dubai is a fine Italian jewelry exhibition, organised by the The Italian Trade Agency through it’s Dubai office and is being held this year between 23-26th April, at the “I Love it” Pavilion – Dubai World Trade Center.
VicenzaOro was previously held in Venice, and now it has moved to glamorous and luxurious Dubai! It is a ‘by invitation only’ event that boasts of 700 Exhibitors from 40 countries – 150 of them being Italian, to represent 24 high-end jewelry companies. Visitors can now catch the opportunity to really understand the ‘heart’ of each single piece and how it is born, grown and evolved into a fine piece of art.
Being a lover of quirky items – I set out to look for some unique pieces on my visit to VicenzaOro on it’s opening day. I was far from disappointed. Handmade exquisite jewelry pieces inspired by everything from history to science fiction, the fine Italian Jewelers had it all on display and they were happy to interact with whoever wished to know more. Rows after rows of expensive, luxurious metals and stones were on display, complete with a common seating area for interaction and business networking.
While I returned awestruck by the designs and made several Italian friends at the VicenzaOro Dubai exhibition, I leave you with some unique, eclectic finds – cherry picked from among hundreds of stalls featuring Italian Jewelry, just for you!
