INTERGEM Idar-Oberstein

27. - 29. November 2024 | International trade fair for gems, jewellery and gemstone objects

INTERGEM stands as a beacon of excellence in the world of gemstones. Its name embodies international flair and a shared passion for gemstones that binds the industry globally. Every autumn, the elite of the gemstone and jewellery industry convenes in the scenic Idar-Oberstein, celebrating the splendour and diversity of gemstones and associated products..

Idar-Oberstein boasts a rich history linked to gemstone discoveries. The region is famed for its deposits of agates, amethysts, quartz crystals, among other precious stones. The beginnings of agate mining can be traced back to as early as the 15th century, solidifying the city's reputation as a hub for gemstone processing.

Established in 1985 by Intergem Messe GmbH, INTERGEM has consistently secured its place in the diaries of professionals globally. The organisers, Intergem Messe GmbH, bring a blend of expertise in event management and a deep understanding of the gemstone sector.

The primary emphasis of the fair lies in showcasing the finest gemstones, diamonds, and gemstone jewellery. Within the halls of the Idar-Oberstein fairgrounds, attendees are introduced to a distinctive array of pearls, intricate engravings, artistic items, and jewellery accentuating coloured gemstones and diamonds. The event encapsulates both the ongoing trends and fresh finds from gemstone mines worldwide, balancing age-old artistry with modern design.

A standout feature of the fair is the "Long Night of Gemstones," a mesmerising event that enchants both attendees and participants, creating lasting memories. Exhibitors hail from diverse backgrounds, ranging from mine proprietors to designers and jewellers. Predominantly, the audience comprises proactive jewellers, goldsmiths, designers, and jewellery manufacturers in pursuit of inspiration, innovations, and commercial prospects.

The Idar-Oberstein fairgrounds provide an impeccable backdrop for this grand event. The city, with its charming landscape and rich cultural tapestry, ensures that every visit is memorable. Idar-Oberstein's profound history and ties to gemstones infuse added cultural and historical depth to the fair. Recognised for its gemstone mines and exemplary gemstone craftsmanship, the region's fame is further celebrated through the Gemstone Fountain in Idar-Oberstein, an artistic tribute to its gemstone heritage.

In summation, INTERGEM is more than a fair. It's a jubilation of gemstones, where tradition, innovation, and zeal unite.
