The 50th edition of the Watch & Jewellery Middle East Show (WJMES) continues to captivate visitors with a variety of limited-edition and unique masterpieces of stunning watch and jewellery collections that were exclusively designed to be unveiled during the current edition, which will run until October 9.
The Turkish jeweler ” Kiswa Jewellery” displayed special gold crafts under the theme “Jewellery passed down through generations,” inlaying pieces and scents from the Kaaba’s covering in gold and silver works. The Kiswa dates back to the Ottoman era.

These included silver and gold-plated crafts created from ancient Holy Kaaba keys dating back to 1447–1512 as well as a $20k rare watch that was made by hand from ivory using 3D printing and gold water paint.
The Embassy of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay has gone above and beyond with its pavilion, showcasing an impressive collection of amethyst and psychic stones. The Italian company Salvatore Nardelli, which has been participating in the exhibition for 8 years and owns about 300 gold and jewellery stores in Italy, displayed hundreds of pieces, including jewellery made of diamonds and gold, inspired by Italian culture.
