“With antique jewelry fast becoming a buying trend in Asia, our Antique Pavilion will no doubt be a big draw at our event,” says Paul Wan, managing director for UBM Asia Trade Fairs, the event’s organizer, in a statement.
The show, the largest fine jewelry event held in Singapore, will feature more than 260 exhibitors from 27 countries and target the region’s high net-worth individuals and trade buyers. It is also the only jewelry fair in the country supported by the Singapore Jewellers Association and the Diamond Exchange of Singapore.
The collection includes items dating back more than a century—the oldest being a Victorian-era diamond tiara made in 1850 and valued at about $20 million. Another prized item is a Harry Winston 18-carot yellow gold emerald and diamond ring made in 1981 and worth approximately $4.8 million.
“Buyers appreciate the rarity of these antique jewelry, their beauty and sense of history and heritage,” contends Wan.
