BaselWorld 2012 is the place to see what is new in the wide world of watches. And this year, women have plenty to look forward to with a wide range of choices and of course plenty of diamonds.

Here are some of the new faces you will come across as the doors of BaselWorld open from the 8th - 15th March. It is the world's biggest watch and jewellery show. Vast halls that stretch as far as the eye can see house a world of watch and jewellery wonders. The big brands erect entire buildings of marble, glass and even wood to showcase the new arrivals in the most opulent settings. This is also to come and buy loose stones and pearls as an entire hall is given over to an Aladdin's treasure trove of all the sparkles, shimmers and shines.

Almost every big name in both watches and jewellery is here and to mark the tone, Rolex and Patek Philippe flank the entrance to the main hall. The Swatch Group straddles the hub of the vast hall with its brands that include Omega, Breguet, Longines, Blancpain, Rado and Tissot to name a few. The hundreds of other booths are filled with names we know such as Breitling, Hublot, Chanel, Dior, Harry Winston and Chopard.

In an adjacent hall are clustered jewellery brands from big names such as Mikimoto to small producers. But all are here with the same aim: to sell to retailers and tell the press all about their new creations. So if watches are your thing, then make sure you follow the news from the biggest watch event on the planet, or head to Basel as the event is open to the public.

Editor's Pick

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
