Pioneering Watch & Jewellery Event in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to be held for the second year.
Following on from the success of its inaugural edition in 2021, Riyadh International Luxury Week is set to be held at the Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from 24th – 27th May 2022. The event is designed to showcase the ultimate in watch and jewelry creativity and craftsmanship, featuring over 60 of some of the world’s – and region’s – most prominent brands, as well as a host of interactive experiences for visitors.
Riyadh International Luxury Week offers a gateway for watch and jewelry specialists to engage with their audience in the Kingdom, debuting novelties, showcasing standout pieces, sharing their heritage and craft, and creating a platform for conversation in the luxury space.
The exhibition will once again have one zone dedicated to Jewellery, the other to Horology in the form of Salon des Grandes Complications. Displays will include both Fine and High Jewellery, an array of curated pieces made with visionary savoir-faire and featuring rare, extraordinary stones, as well as a wide range of exceptional timepieces crafted to the highest levels of artistry and technological innovation by legendary watchmakers.
This year, young Saudi designers will be given the chance to shine, with a dedicated section for those new to the industry, devoted to their craft. Another new addition is the Bespoke Jewellery Design Salon, where visitors will be able to dream up one-off creations guided by industry specialists.
Several seminars will also be held, with acclaimed experts offering insights into both watchmaking and jewelry topics. Special guests include Nezar Jamil Mukhtar, Member of the National Committee for Precious Metals & Gemstones and Member of the Gold & Jewellery Committee of Riyadh Chamber, Sotheby’s representatives Frederic Watrelot and Sophie Stevens, and watch collector Khalid Al Seif among others. Her Excellency Evelyne Genta, wife of legendary watchmaker Gerald Genta, will also join one of the sessions, virtually.
“It is apparent to all that there is an immense appreciation for watches and jewelry across the Middle East, particularly in Saudi Arabia. As the largest economy in the MENA region, with steady growth under Saudi’s Vision 2030 diversification program, there are great opportunities for the luxury industry in the Kingdom. Riyadh International Luxury Week addresses this and is an exciting platform for visitors to get up close and personal with some incredible creations for the first time. The event also adds another layer of dialogue through educational experiences for those with a passion to further their knowledge,” stated Abdulrahman Alzeer, CEO of Riyadh International Luxury Week.
