Fair newcomer Moussaieff Jewellers is bringing some of its rarest gems to the event, including a ring set with a natural Fancy Vivid pink diamond weighing 5.70 carats and a pair of ear pendants featuring over 40 carats of Burmese rubies and 6.88 carats of Colombian emeralds.

Under the stewardship of Managing Director Mrs Alisa Moussaieff, the high jewellery emporium boasts a history dating back to 1850 and by the 1920s was selling rare gemstones and natural pearls sourced from the Gulf. Today they have boutiques across the world and have a jaw dropping diamond collection that includes the 5.11-carat Moussaieff Red, one of the largest red diamonds ever known, and the flawless Moussaieff Blue diamond.

Also exhibiting at the fair for the first time is the Taiwanese fine jewellery brand CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel, who will be presenting designs from their Black Label and White Label collections. Fabio Salini also joins the fair and will exclusively reveal a collection made from carbon fibre. Through his use of this sleek material, the Italian jeweller aims to revolutionise contemporary jewellery by focusing attention on their design and style instead of simply their intrinsic value.
