VicenzaOro September 2022, glowing optimism guidelines amongst jewellery consumers and exhibitors.

I am going to admit that when leaving house and heading in the direction of the chaos of Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, I questioned what I’d discover in Vicenza. The information that hits us each day is pessimistic sufficient:

  • Hovering vitality costs
  • Russia is pinching the Nord Stream strains
  • The Conflict in Ukraine continues
  • Housing issues
  • Lack of staff in just about each sector 

However then there are additionally large issues in each provide chain, to not point out the assorted humanitarian crises across the globe, from the flooding in Pakistan to the continual stream of refugees (and a rising reluctance to welcome them).

As a sector, we’re susceptible to crises. We’re a luxurious product enterprise and, due to this fact, in any given disaster, considerably redundant.

I stared into the prepare window, heading to Amsterdam, observing the cows within the flat Dutch fields and excited about how Netherlands farmers have been protesting for months. The choice of the Dutch authorities to chop down nitrogen emissions by half in 2030 signifies that many farms (and their livestock) have to shut to protect nature. And the way may I not hyperlink this to the various talks I’ve been listening to, in the course of the previous editions of VicenzaOro, about sustainability? It comes with a worth; once we do not prioritize sustainability, a worth we can not afford. However let’s additionally respect the worth many individuals and companies pay for sustainable objectives.

I used to be cautious, however the customer confirmed an informed optimism! So sure, I used to be excited to go to the present however anticipated to discover a barely cautious temper on the ground. However from Friday on, it was booming! Many cubicles, particularly in Corridor 7, had been working like mad. Nanis was crowded from day one, and so had been many others.

However first, let me take you inside by the doorway door! The set up proper subsequent to the doorway was glittering gold, inviting folks to take selfies like mad. Yours actually, being awfully modest on the mistaken moments, didn’t need to wait in line, and you will find beneath my comfortable however not a really glamorous selfie 😉

Loud music pumps up our temper and expectations, and strolling onto the ground appears like stepping right into a film. I swear I heard somebody yelling at me; ”and motion”! 😉

September is not about new collections typically. Though some manufacturers have created new jewellery items, it is largely an evolution of designs beforehand introduced in January. VOS22 (VicenzaOro September 2022) is about shopping for for the upcoming vacation season.

But, though beforehand very prudent, some Dutch retailers did come to me to ask me for jewellery model suggestions that will work within the Netherlands. So, sure, persons are additionally on a path to discovery throughout this end-of-summer jewellery present within the attractive city of Vicenza.  

What stood out for me throughout this VicenzaOro present? 

To begin with, the temper, as described above. It was simply so optimistic. Or maybe it’s higher to explain it as educated optimism. Consumers weren’t afraid to splash out on issues, however they primarily purchased objects they know will promote in the course of the upcoming vacation season.

After all, as a blogger and journalist, which I’m throughout these exhibits, I do not see the whole lot folks purchase. However I used to be lucky sufficient to accompany just a few Dutch retailers and noticed how they appeared for stable chains with glamorous particulars and distinctive items that will fulfill their eclectic clientele. 

I do not see many ”smaller mid-section shops” from my very own nation. Maybe I’m mistaken; I’ve no direct perception, however evidently too many mid-section shops do not put money into coming to exhibits like VicenzaOro. Why is that?

I do know there are fears of pondering they’re too small to buy a group instantly. I additionally know that Italian corporations nonetheless battle with the picture of not being probably the most dependable on the market.

That may be a mistake, in my view. This present is so nicely organized, straightforward to achieve, and accommodating to overseas guests that any objection concerning the issue and doing enterprise with Italians flies out the door.

If not for purchasing something, any retailer, anybody working in jewellery, ought to come to a jewellery present like VicenzaOro at the least every year. And why?

Due to the overwhelming inspiration, one feels strolling across the cubicles. It is not about inspiration to repeat designs, however inspiration about how folks from the smallest to probably the most outstanding firm reimagine jewellery in all totally different varieties of the way. 


It is about strolling and speaking jewellery the entire bloody time, and that interplay, that listening to opinions, concepts, and insights from so many various folks, is an enormous inspiration. 

Not to mention the (typically) thrilling talks on stage. I really feel there may very well be tons extra of them, and I see potentialities for workshops and extra sooner or later. However there may be at all times one thing occurring stage!

I additionally know that watch manufacturers, to call an trade very near ours, are significantly better at doing this with hosted invites to model occasions and in-house visits. I imply, severely, we simply do not all reside inNew York, London, Paris, or Milan 🙂

  • Cubicles will be tailored once more to the model’s style; I hope NO ONE returns to closed cubicles. This unfriendly, unwelcoming phenomenon disappeared in the course of the COVID years. I really like the approachable, much more human connection of the open sales space. 
  • Extra workshops and extra how-to in brief bite-size periods. Suppose TikTok on stage.
  • Extra jewellery designers exhibiting.
  • Extra staff of shops, extra retailers, extra goldsmiths and designers as guests of the present(you’ll find it irresistible!)
