Venice is a city of water and light. When the sky is clear and the sun is high the water that defines this city sparkles. The sun casts shadows on the ancient buildings throughout the day. At night the city twinkles with the glow of artificial light.
Buildings thousands of years old are set delicately on the water’s edge. A grand mosaic unified by centuries of unbounded creativity. The water is not only the lifeblood of this great Italian city but it is also it’s cruel enemy, through its constant, persistent and endless beating on the city’s grand buildings and small houses, adding to its overall character.
To put it briefly Venice is a jewel and I can’t think of a more appropriate place to hold a luxury jewelry show. The About J show will open this evening, an invitation-only event where 34 luxury jewelry designers from different parts of the world will present their works to a small, select group of buyers.
I will be supplying reports as often as possible while enjoying this unique place.
