It could be put left in a distant corner of the yearly Worldwide Trade Fair in Munich, but Schmuck is the most momentous annual occasion on the international contemporary jewellery calendar. It’s little known outside the art jewellery platform but it’s been that way since 1959, when it was first established as a unique platform for jewellery artists to display their work. Schmuck has always been a natural cultural exchange, as jewelers, galleries and collectors converge from across the globe. This year’s event inspired 700 submissions from 35 countries.
