The Glitz and the Glamour of Basel.

Working in the jewelery industry has its perks , no I am not getting paid in diamonds (I wish), but i do get to visit some of the most amazing places and see some of the most beautiful jewels and timepeices in the world. Once a  year everybody who is anybody in the Jewelry business attends the World Watch Fair in Basel Switzerland. I am “reporting” from there for the next few days. This is my fourth time here and no matter how many times I attend, the show is breathtaking…. The amount of wealth is incomprehensible: from Rolex to Chopard and Breitling to Chanel, not to mention the Italian jewelry section (my favorite).  No matter where I look everything screams luxury!!!
Approximately 2,000.00 exhibitors are trying to impress 100,000.00 customers and what a show that is:

About Ariana

I came to USA about 20 years from former USSR. I am an American Citizen with a heavy Russian Accent. My two boys always make fun of my English. I love to write, I usually do it for me, but if you would like to stop and leave a comment it would be great! I ‘d love to share with you my American World with the hint of my Russian Personality.

    Wow, that looks really exciting. What a fun conference. And Switzerland? Granted I have not been there, but it seems like an amazing place to go. Definitely on my “to visit” list for the future.

  2. I wish I could afford anything in Hermes!
