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.
