This is a showcase of gorgeous, Italian-crafted gold jewellery, inspired by the latest looks coming out of Italy. QVC's Gold Buyer Sarah Filippardos has been in Italy, viewing the latest releases at the Vicenza Jewellery Fair. Take a look at Sarah's blog from day 3…
"So it’s our final day at the Vicenza Jewellery Fair and it’s with a real sense of purpose that we walk through the doors today. So much to do and see, and only eight hours to go!
Our first appointment is with Danny to talk about the wonderful new gold show that we have premiering in April – keep your eyes peeled for this one! Many of you will know Danny from our OrPaz shows, and now he will be bringing us something completely new and different in crafted 9ct yellow gold with gemstone accents and intricate, hand-worked details all crafted in Israel.
This is a gold jewellery collection that I’m so excited to bring to our QVC customers, and to be able to meet Danny in Vicenza, well what a wonderful and inspiring place in which to bring the collection together!
Next on the schedule is a meeting with Francesca Randazzo. Such an inspirational lady and so filled with passion about the Murano Glass that we use in our Murano Jewellery. The colours of the pieces and the skill and craftsmanship of each and every design is awe inspiring.
Every piece I see is different to the next. The meeting is a huge success and we are able to develop some simply stunning and classic Murano Glass Jewellery ideas – nothing mass produced or boring here!
Now I get the chance to spend some time wandering the Fair, looking into the glass cases as I pass each new stand. It’s lovely to come away from the office this way and meet with so many creative people. Many old faces and still so many new. The overwhelming feeling of this Fair is creativity. Colour, texture, movement and opulence in spades!
As the day comes to an end it is with mixed feeling that the QVC Jewellery Buyers walk away. We have had such a wonderful few days here,and seen so many new things that it is difficult to leave, but we really can’t wait to return to QVC HQ and get started on our new jewellery collections for our QVC customers. After all, we have one of the best jobs in the world!"
Don't forget to catch one of our brand new gold jewellery shows coming to QVC next month. It's called Arte D'Oro and will be on air at 8pm on the 2nd of February.
See you soon, Will x
