GemGenève is Back in November … with Fabergé!

GemGenève

GENEVA, 23 AUGUST 2022 – It’s official! By popular demand from its exhibitors, GemGenève is holding a second, exceptional edition again this year in Geneva. “We had initially planned to hold only one edition, in May 2022. Following calls from our exhibitors, we´ve decided to organize a second edition in autumn 2022 in Geneva, but this shouldn’t become standard practice in the future”, emphasizes Ronny Totah.

The 5th meeting of gemology and jewellery professionals and enthusiasts will therefore open its doors from Thursday, 3rd November to Sunday, 6th November in Palexpo, this time in Hall 6. It will coincide once again with the major autumnal auction sales of the Geneva Luxury Week.

The Most Expensive Gold Antique in the World – $35 Million Persian Necklace

This stunning necklace is considered to be one of the rarest privately owned gold artifacts in the World!

Known as ‘The Star Crescent Necklace’ it is actually an ancient jewellery set that archeologists call ‘Parthian-Sarmatian Royal Gold Necklace and Amulet’.

This necklace is believed to have been first created in Parthia, an ancient Persian empire that existed from 247 BC to 224 AD, but eventually came into possession of the Sarmatians, the legendary nomadic Indo-Iranian warriors that spread throughout the Eurasian Steppe.

Now, in our exclusive art investigation, we’re going to unveil all the fascinating secrets about this Royal artifact!

Is Saudi Prince About To Buy $36M Chinese Ming Dynasty Statuettes

After our first publication about these rare $36 Million Chinese Ming Dynasty statuettes, The World Art News received further questions regarding their provenance, authenticity, valuation, and who may be the potential buyer of these unique artifacts. For answers we went straight to the source and took a sensational, exclusive, and provocative in-depth interview with their current owner, prof. Mikhail Tamoikin, Ph.D.

Professor Tamoikin was surprisingly candid with us and gave stunning answers to all our questions. If you ever wandered how the super-rich do business, negotiate, and operate in the art market, this interview is a Must-Read!

Could two Chinese Ming Dynasty statuettes be worth more than $36 Million

It appears that one major art fund is looking to find out. You might have heard that in 2014 a Shanghai-based art collector Liu Yiqian spent $36.3 million on a tiny porcelain Ming Dynasty cup. That news made the art reporters buzz for the whole year, bringing fame and fortune to Mr. Yiqian, and making it clear to the whole world that Chinese heritage has value, a lot of value!

The Tamoikin Art Fund (TAF) is clearly looking to test this theory, because recently it unveiled two ancient Chinese statuettes that have been attributed to the Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from 1368 to 1644.
