The largest fine jewelry show in North America, JCK Las Vegas (May 31 – June 4), is returning to its original home, the Sands Expo Convention Center and the adjacent Venetian Resort Las Vegas. In 2011 it moved three miles down the strip to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, which received mixed reviews primarily because of its distance from the other trade fairs.
The show held at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort provides an exclusive and intimate environment for the approximate 4,000 invited buyers who will view the products from about 200 luxury jewelry designers and brands and luxury watch companies. Many of the names, such David Yurman, Irene Neuwirth, Stephen Webster, Montblanc and Bell & Ross, are familiar throughout the world.
In addition to the big name brands, there are many well-established and highly praised independent jewelry designers and some newcomers who have been invited by the show because of their potential to make an impact on jewelry art and design. Among those exhibiting are the following:
Harakh is the creative child of Harakh Mehta, a veteran jeweler and diamantaire. His jewels are deeply rooted to his native Indian culture. He says his creations represents “luxury with a soul.”
Theresa Bruno, the founder of Jordan Alexander Jewelry, creates pieces that are delicate and incorporate a rainbow of fancy colored gems. The brand produces signature collections and Bruno does bespoke work for a number of regular clients.
Loree Rodkin, who designs jewelry for rock stars and first ladies, is coming to Couture for the first time, bringing her high jewelry bling that ranges from goth to romance.
