GemGenève sold out!
160 exhibitors registered for GemGenève and 16 countries represented
GENEVA, 7 MARCH 2022 – The 4th edition of GemGenève will take place from 5th to 8th May 2022 at Palexpo. GemGenève organisers, Thomas Faerber and Ronny Totah, have announced there will be 160 exhibitors from all four corners of the earth. This new spring edition already looks extremely promising, this time with a taste of rediscovered freedom. Once again, GemGenève holds many surprises and previously unseen discoveries for both visitors and exhibitors. The show offers a 360 degree foray into the heart of the world of jewellery, precious stones, rare and unique gems, antique jewellery, historic and contemporary creations. Past, Present, Future… bringing the best in jewellery design to GemGenève!
Thomas Faerber emphasises, ”After the success of the November 2021 edition – The Challenging Edition, we committed to continuing our mission with the same intention to bring together the best of what is being produced in the field of jewellery and precious stones”. Ronny Totah adds: “The palpable enthusiasm of our exhibitors pushes us to renew ourselves with each edition, while still respecting the event’s DNA. The aim is to maintain the show, designed by the exhibitors, on a human scale, bringing together the general public, the industry professionals, designers of today and tomorrow, including the schools, as well as laboratories, world-renowned experts and informed speakers on the latest trends. GemGenève is a hub which enables quality discussions and examination of major themes of importance to the jewellery trades.
The 4th edition will undoubtedly have a taste of rediscovered freedom.
In terms of participation, American exhibitors lead the way; closely followed by exhibitors from Switzerland, Israel, Germany, Hong Kong, Belgium, France, Thailand, India and Italy. And then, by companies, from the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Sri Lanka, Japan, and finally, Austria.
The figures speak for themselves
“It was so encouraging”, reveals Ronny Totah, “to see a 79.82% re-booking rate of returning exhibitors between 2021 and 2022. Moreover, more than 45 exhibitors are participating at GemGenève for the fourth time. We are also welcoming over 20 first-time exhibitors, represented by houses such as Claudia Hamann Edelstein, Constantin Wild, La Galerie Parisienne, and even larger family firms like Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt. Ltd, and Takat Gems (HK and NY).”
This year, there will be over 160 exhibitors from 16 countries, who are true ambassadors for GemGenève, as diverse in personality as the pieces on display. All these exhibitors are full partners and key players in this show, conceived and designed with them in mind. Together they offer an impressive variety of treasures to discover and acquire: ranging from affordable jewellery via rare and exceptional pieces to antique and historic gems, contemporary creations, and not to mention diamonds, precious stones and pearls…
Always driven by the desire to champion the interests of its exhibitors, GemGenève has taken every possible step to make their visit as convenient as possible, offering a turnkey service for their booth, with tailored, personalised lighting to bring out the best of the pieces. GemGenève is dedicated to offering them the best possible experience in terms of welcome, comfort and hospitality.
GemGenève represents the new generation of professional exhibitions. We remain a show on a human scale with a family feel. A true hub where professionals and jewellery enthusiasts can gather, it has no equivalent right now. Ronny Totah, co-founder of GemGenève

Takat Gems HK
Rare & unique Gems, Est. 1995
TAKAT’s company founder, Haji Nisar Ahmed Takat, comes from an ancient Indian family of precious stone craftsmen. They originate from the historical city of Jaipur, renowned for its roses, which speaks to the poetry, passion and compassion that inspires this family.
Haji Nisar Ahmed Takat had a passion for exquisite colour. He had heart focused on continuing the family trade and building a future for his family, and an eye for gems that would yield the most impressive results. In 1955, he opened his first precious stone cutting and polishing business in Jaipur, and in 1976, with sons Siraj Ahmed Takat and Rafeeq Ahmed Takat joining the business, he began trading operations.
Today, that original location remains as the TAKAT world flagship.

IsabelleFa – Chain masters
The art of traditional chainmaking
