Milan, 17th November 2014
Once again this year, Artistar Jewels puts on scene a selected collection of contemporary jewels produced by artists coming from every part of the world. The attempt at bringing the spotlight to the different artistic expressions is therefore renewed and enriched for this second edition by the numerous international participants.
The show draws the attention of its visitors to the thousand facets of the jewelry world, intended as essential accessories able to render precious anyone who wears them thanks to the uniqueness of their elaboration.
During the exhibition it will be possible to admire more than 200 creations by international designers, a rare occasion in which it is possible to contemplate, up close and personal, a varied selection of high-end goldsmith jewelry, wearable sculptures and contemporary jewelry creations. Every object has been meticulously created using the most varied range of materials, from precious and priced metals, to hard stones, to alternative materials coming from the recycling of objects of everyday use.
This amazing artistic mix will ensure a multicultural atmosphere that will certainly elicit pleasant sensations in everyone that might take part in the event. The artists will be able to illustrate the visitors the design process that has traduced the original idea into artistic jewel. It will be therefore interesting to be able to appreciate, through the creations, the territorial diversity of the artists coming from different continents.
The show will take place at Spazio Fondazione Maimeri and will be open to the public from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st December 2014 from 10:00 to 19:00. Friday 19th December from 7pm the winners of Artistar Contest will be announced during the vernissage.
All the creations exhibited in the show will be featured in the book Artistar Jewels 2015 that will be published by Fausto Lupetti Editore and distributed to all Italian bookstores and major European capitals. As every year, the book will be gifted to more than 5000 professionals of the industry such as journalists, personal shoppers, fashion boutiques as well as provided to the major Hotel Spa & Wellness worldwide.
Furthermore, Artistar Jewels will publish all the jewels on the e-commerce platform Artistarjewels.com in order to bring closer the potential buyers and the designers of the exhibited jewels.

The past two years of Artistar Jewels meant the world to me. The 2018 edition was the primary reason that I made my brand official. I had been designing and creating for many years but mostly as a student. My confidence in my work wasn’t all that high but when you all took notice, it made me begin to take what I do seriously. It was a huge learning experience: I came home with a new mission to step up my game and I feel like I did just that. My confidence in my art continues to grow thanks to this amazing project.
Describing Artistar Jewels in three words? Audacious, professional and ambitious. Visibility is an important component, especially for those like me who come from "solo" projects. The opportunity to be part of this project and the possibility of being published in a contemporary jewelry book together with other talented artists from all over the world was really exciting and rewarding, especially after much work spent growing and establishing myself as an artist.
The professionalism, genuine care, devotion and distinctive selection of the magniﬁcent diversity of work distinguish Artistar Jewels. It is an honor and privilege to exhibit with them. All of the work in the 2019 edition was extremely fascinating. The quality and diversity of materials, styles and execution of the art was astounding. I look forward to Milano Jewelry Week. Milano is a global center for art and design and a perfect place for this event. The presence of artistar jewels will greatly enhance its stellar success.
