With an entire area dedicated to jewellery, the world’s leading art fair is an unmissable event for collectors and connoisseurs.
TEFAF is where the wealthiest collectors of fine art and antiques gather to peruse some of the most precious objects in the world. Established in 1987, around 10% of the fair’s 275 exhibitors showcase antique jewellery spanning from classical antiquity to the 1950s.
Innovative heavyweights such as Chopard, Hemmerle, Van Cleef & Arpels and Wallace Chan really push out the creative boat, with jewels that boast a wow factor to match the stratospheric price tags. This year, Verdura and Belperron will be exhibiting for the first time, with both jewellery houses unveiling a selection of new and vintage jewellery, as well as pieces from their Museum collections.
