VICENZA, Italy — High-end exhibitors showcasing their fine jewelry collections at six-day trade show Vicenzaoro focused on craftsmanship and exclusivity to catch the attention of international buyers attending the show here last month.
“Vicenzaoro represents an important opportunity to meet and deal with people, and it also offers the chance to see what’s going on in the industry in terms of creativity and design,” said Manish Dhamani, director at Dubai-based Dhamani jewelry retailer. Dhamani, who stressed that his customers are highly fashion-conscious and seeking hyper-luxury jewels handcrafted in Italy, said his company’s budgets for the next three months total around 4 million euros, or $5.3 million at current exchange.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
