VENICE — The About J trade show — an exclusive preview of artisan jewelry that immediately precedes the fall edition of the larger goldsmith’s art, gems and jewelry Vicenzaoro fair — brought together 34 top-tier brands this season.
Last month’s edition took place for the first time at the Hilton Molino Stucky luxury hotel on Giudecca island, just south of Venice’s central islands. Nearly 200 international buyers from 39 countries flocked to the stands, hunting for standout pieces and uniquely Italian design elements.
