Milano Jewelry Week

Milano Jewelry Week is back after the two-year stop imposed by the pandemic. Looking at the numbers, this second edition promises to be even more international and crowded than the first. “As far as we are concerned - confirms Enzo Carbone, founder of Prodes Italia, the company that created and organises the Milano Jewelry Week - the stop from Covid was only physical, as we never stopped planning it. These long months have allowed us to design and work on new formats and to develop new relationships”.

With about 200 scheduled events, 500 exhibitors from 40 countries, and more than 8000 jewellery pieces on display, together with a capsule dedicated to watches, anticipating a major event in 2023 – from 20 to 23 October, special flags will ‘invade’ the city centre, placed in front of the participating locations: in addition to jewellery ateliers, goldsmith academies and schools, also art galleries, fashion boutiques, design showrooms and commercial activities of different sectors, where goldsmith masters from all over the world will exhibit their creations in new contexts and scenarios.

The event will be under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan, C.N.A. Federmoda and Club degli Orafi, while confirmed partners include prestigious institutions and names such as Assogemme, Borsa Diamanti d’Italia, Italian Gemological Institute, Associazione Orafa Lombarda, A.N.T.I.C.O. – the Italian National Association for the Protection of the Gold Sector, Assamblage (the Romanian Jewellery Association), The Brian & Barry Building. The MJW will also involve several jewellery schools, hotbeds of emerging talents, becoming a unique opportunity for dialogue and exchange between Italian institutes (IED and Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana in Milan, Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence, FOR.AL in Valenza) and its counterparts from Romania, Brazil, Singapore, Nigeria, Mexico. The Milanese Galdus will host lectures and workshops open to the public and a talent show featuring the most promising students at the partner schools.

 Among group exhibitions, Artistar Jewels is certainly one of the most prominent. Now in its eighth edition, the contemporary jewellery show will gather over 200 artists and designers at Palazzo Bovara this year. The designers of the winning creations in each category will receive their awards during a spectacular ceremony. Also, the FaB by Artistar Jewels will make its debut at Palazzo dei Giureconsulti this year: 150 independent brands and designers will present jewellery inspired by the 4 natural elements. Alessio Boschi, Brand Ambassador and one of the most famous names in international jewellery, will deliver the prizes to the winning projects. Another place dear to the Milanese people, La Pelota will host The Jewelry Hub, a B2B and B2C event, where the High, Fine, Fashion and Vintage Jewellery collections created by a hundred international brands can be admired. Another noteworthy debut is that of Jewelry Drops, an exhibition of about 500 jewellery pieces at Palazzo Giureconsulti, one-of-a[1]kind or limited editions, made of unusual or recycled materials.

Parallel to the group exhibitions, countless MJW events will feature the likes of Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Antonini Milano, Brian & Barry Building, Scavia, Gioielleria Merzaghi, Veronesi Gioielli among many others.

During Milano Jewelry Week the second floor of the Brian & Barry Building, dedicated to jewelry and watches, will host an exhibition where the brands will be the absolute protagonists. All jewelry manufacturers have been asked to express and describe themselves through a particular piece of jewelry: an earring. They took up this challenge giving life to an artistic path which will lead the visitors to discover the intrinsic characteristics of every jewelry brand present on the floor.
