Presse-Inform ation * Press release * Comm uniqué de presse * Com unicato stam pa* Com unicado de prensa No. 21 a February 14, 2006 Jewelry and Timepiece Novelties at inhorgenta europe from A-Z Jewelry Novelties: ABEL & ZIMMER MANN (EGANA B2 234/331) Jewelry from the manufacturer Abel & Zimmermann rich in tradition is classically beautiful and surprisingly varied. Creations with unique characteristics have been designed and handcrafted by masters of goldsmith art since 1885. Material quality is most significant for the manufacturer, and consequently only gold 750/, platinum 950/ and the finest diamonds are used. „Jewellery Forever‟ – Jewelry produced from white gold, appealing thanks to very demanding crafting, which fit refined evening dress just as well as relaxed jeans. Fine diamonds set in pave radiate from individual parts and give the classic „Figarokette‟ that certain something. AMALA® - SOPHIA W AHL (C2 332 C FORU M INNOVATION ) “Alpauftrieb” is the name of the new series from AMALA. Two ibex heads adorn rings made of 925 silver. The joyful piece of jewelry is crowned by an exchangeable, colorful plastic pad with gems or pearls. The Herzring from the “A Heart for Judith K.” series provides comfort and security. It is available in different variations, including in 750 yellow gold and 750 rosé gold or 925 silver with fresh-water, cultured pearls. ARKANTUS SCH MUCKDESIGN , C2 436 Regina Gräber melts pieces of broken glass together into small objects. This technique produces an especially good result in her spoon pendants “Lecker” made of 925 silver and glass. Melted pieces of broken glass on a spoon remind you of caviar. The light is reflected by the curves, and the shine of the glass is emphasized. Her idea to engrave glass rings from colored beverage bottles is especially original. A piece from a bottleneck is taken using a special procedure and worked to form an individual ring. The inner diameter of the bottle determines the ring size. This is a beautiful gift as a remembrance of a special day. Have a ring engraved for your loved one from a bottle of wine or champagne that you shared. Messe München GmbH, Marketing & Communications inhorgenta europe, Messegelände, 81823 München Tel: (+49 89) 949-20610 /1, Fax (+49 89) 949-97-20611, stefanie.gerhardt@messe-münchen.de, www.inhorgenta.com 2 TILL BAACKE (C2 326/531)31) Amulets have been created in the “Par Couches” series, which should become containers for very personal objects, thoughts and memories. These containers only achieve their actual function after insertion of such individual contents, which make them into personal objects of those wearing them. Opening and closing some of these amulets is very complicated, because inserting and replacing contents should represent a ritual, for which you take time and do very consciously. Others can be opened quickly and easily, and some can only be closed once. The shells of the containers have ribs, points or small balls on the outside and partially inside, so that you like holding them in your hand and playing with them. Others let you suspect their later contents through small openings in the cover without really disclosing them. Materials: silver 925/, iron, stainless steel, plastic, aluamide, fine gold, enamel, rubber, wool cords and hemp cords. BLUE FIRE (EGANA B2 234/331) Blue Fire is a perfect example of modern diamond jewelry with a pronounced sense for design and quality. The collection contains classical solitary pieces of jewelry as well as young creations in Sterling silver. The approx. 40 pieces of jewelry plus necklaces cost from 150 to 2,000 euros. Diamond meets silver – a breathtaking liaison. Creations of eternal value are crafted through the combination of Sterling silver with diamonds. Diamond jewelry thus becomes a fashionable accessory and is not longer a prohibitively expensive luxury. The unique feature: all jewelry pieces have a „Blue Fire‟ engraving and an additional diamond where it is technically possible. CHARLOTTE EHINGER-SCHWARZ 1876( C2 312/411) Limitless ring variations with a two-finger ring: „More is just that – a bit more‟ is the motto of the new rings from Charlotte Ehinger-Schwarz 1876. Wolf-Peter Schwarz conjured a two-finger ring in gold, silver and platinum for all aficionados of extravagant rings. Transformations in shape and above all size are thus not subject to limits anymore. Radiating diamonds and colorful, sparkling gems adorn heart-shaped disks and guarantee a unique and splendid appearance. And – hard to believe – the two-finger ring is extremely comfortable to wear. 3 Transformable jewelry ideas: The 1,001 transformation possibilities make the jewelry world of Charlotte Ehinger-Schwarz 1876 very unique: from pendants to rings, brooches and collier, customized and also combinable above and in each other. „To put on chic jewelry means to adorn yourself with sensuous accents and not to bet on reticence ‟ according to Wolf-Peter Schwarz. In line with his jewelry philosophy, his rare fresh water pearls, colored, sparkling gems, unusually cut diamonds, gold and platinum radiate with a unique glow. DF CRÉATION (B2 531 A) The small jewelry studio from France is coming to inhorgenta with its patented idea, the High School Diploma Ring. The ring, which can be designed individually, made of 925 silver or 585 red, white or yellow gold with exchangeable gems as a gift for passing final high school exams is intended as a reward for achievements, a visible sign of attachment and a lucky charm for the future. DRACHENFELS DESIGN (B2 312 C). “Lebenslänglich” is the name of the striking wedding ring collection from Drachenfels Design for ladies with frog princes, hearts or roses. The men‟s models are plainer with hammer-blow or matt ice-structure surfaces. The packaging is original too. Customers get their rings at a jeweler in a small wooden box with lion‟s paws, which have fur on the inside. For an exciting, almost sinful marriage, so to say. EMPORIO ARMANI (FOSSIL GROUP A1 214) The spring jewelry collection from Emporio Armani Gioielli expresses radiance and glamour for women and opulence made of stainless steel and lots of wood for men. Six different chain strands on a woman‟s necklace provide a smart look; they are set with white topaz stones and attached to a silk cord. The necklace for men has a striking, dark pendant made of ebony with a silver Emporio-Armani logo. DUGENA SCHMUCK (EGAN A B2 234/331) „Spring is coming‟. Dugena Schmuck presents a collection under this motto, which once again confirms that jewelry can certainly be a seasonal accessory. From silver with color stones to gold 333/- with zirconium, gold 558/- with diamonds at affordable prices and all the way to pearl jewelry in interesting material combinations, jewelry lovers can find everything that makes spring fashion 2006 even more beautiful. 4 EULIT W ERK (A1 433) She invented it. Troll beads – the modular principle for individual jewelry wishes was already developed by the Danish designer Lisa Aagaard 25 years ago. In the meantime, there are more than 400 symbols in gold, silver and colorful glass beads, which can be arranged in rows individually on Sterling silver chains. The goblin pearls have long since become cult jewelry in Scandinavia, and now the trolls and fairies on the silver chains are coming to Germany and will be exhibited for the first time at inhorgenta. You can already give into your passion for collecting starting from 100 euros. KARL FISCHER (A2 310 C) A special edition of accessories for the Soccer World Cup is available for fabric bracelets and Karl Fischer colliers in the German national colors, cords with a silver soccer ball as keychain, pendants with the flag, eyeglass holders, cufflinks, earrings in the shape of small soccer balls – a complete outfit for style-conscious soccer fans! FOSSIL (FOSSIL GROUP A1 214) Fossil ladies‟ jewelry is becoming opulent. The necklaces and bracelets in Charm Look are especially striking: pearls in various colors, wooden and metal teeth, a metal dagger, zirconium stones and wooden and steel balls together shape an extravagant pendant, which is attached to a plain black leather band. The Charm bracelet, which sparkles and glitters, goes well with it. Seven pendants, including crosses, trendy pearls and white zirconium stones make the stainless steel band into an eye-catcher. Fossil men‟s jewelry is betting on tattoo design. A number of necklaces with tattoo motifs on leather bands and pendants are available for fashion-conscious men. FREY W ILLE (B1 212) For the first time at inhorgenta europe 2006, Frey Wille is presenting a new collection based on the great Art Nouveau artist of all times – „Hommage à Alphonse Mucha‟. The two jewelry sets „Sarah Bernhardt‟ and „Libussa‟ represent the two most striking milestones in Mucha‟s career. The movements of the 1920s are influencing trends in our times strongly. Mucha is an absolute trendsetter in our times due to his way of letting art speak, the selection of his colors and shapes. This style still lives today more than ever, and Frey Wille interprets him in an urbane way. GELLNER (B1 103A) Gellner is offering long necklaces made of South Sea, fresh water and Tahiti pearls in mixture of bright colors. It is also turning attention to the baroque: recalling the 70s, pearls 5 are again combined with diamonds, but more ornately and less delicately than 30 years ago. GOLD BACKFRIEDER (B2 120 A) The family-run company Gold Backfrieder, which has been a successful wholesaler with its own production and a complete range of gold jewelry in Austria for more than 20 years, is exhibiting four jewelry lines at inhorgenta. “Juwellness” is a symbiosis of valuable jewels and wellness: pendants in 750 yellow or white gold, with or without diamond, which should affect body, spirit and soul positively thanks to ultra-fine vibes. The Cosmo Symbolic Collection is composed of approx. 30 expressive symbol pendants in yellow or white gold with magic signs from various cultures. The “Golden Angel” line provides guardian angels as pendants and rings in all gold combinations with and without diamonds. The Moving Memory ring line makes it possible to recall moving moments time and again; the rings can be expanded with diamonds or symbols for any occasion. GERHARD HAHN PEARL (B1 208 B) Gerhard Hahn surprises pearl aficionados with oversized pearls with a diameter up to 18 millimeters and unusual colors such as gold, orange or violet, combined into multi-colored necklaces or baroque jewelry pieces. DANIEL HILLER(C2 332 C INNOVATION FORU M) Cats, dogs, rabbits – regardless or whether in 750 yellow gold with feeding bowls adorned with diamonds or in high quality 925 silver – the jewelry pieces from Daniel Hiller are a must for animal lovers. In addition, you can get the right jewelry for the upcoming season of popular festivals from the jewelry designer from Holzkirchen in Upper Bavaria. His colliers, pendants and earrings look good enough to eat; they are made of gold or silver pretzels, in part set with diamonds. MEISTER (B1 202 B) Fingerprint and message of love: the wedding rings from Meister have a very personal touch. The handwriting or fingerprint of a partner or even a very personal message of love can be immortalized on the inside of the ring using laser engraving. Meister is also dealing with the topic of soccer this year. There are cufflinks in the shape of soccer shoe spikes. And another even more striking men‟s accessory: the Feng Shui amulet made of titanium with integrated compass. The elements and points of the compass are engraved on the titanium disk. This lets you check your living space quickly for bad or good Feng Shui. 6 SVETL ANA MILOSEVIC (C2 326/531, NR. 20). The jewelry pieces from Svetlana Milosevic are a documentation of movement. At the beginning, there is a video recording of a car drive seen through the rear-view mirror. The designer takes stills, unfocused elements and contours, light and color traces from them and transfers them to foil or etches them onto metal plates. Cut into strips or rectangular shapes, these are combined with small silver plates and/or porcelain strips and mounted free-moving. Brooches or necklaces with elements connected and pushed above each other loosely create new pictures again and again. PANDORA (B2 420/519 D/E) Pandora is presenting high-quality beggar bracelets in Danish design for the second time at inhorgenta. The bracelets are made of Sterling silver or 585 gold. The great variety of the pendants, also made of silver and gold, are designed to stimulate feminine passion for collecting.

GITTA PIELCKE ( C2 213/313 B/C CONCEPT FORU M). Flora is a thing of the past, and fauna is the center of attention this year. Animal motifs are on original rings made of silver and gold.

SCHOEFFEL (B1 203/302 B/C) Schoeffel is picking up on the trend to colorful pearls; everything is possible from green- gray to pink. Shapes and combinations are becoming more varied too. The “Hippie” collier from the Classic Collection combines radiating, beautiful fresh water cultured pearls in the middle of delicate and lissome blossoms made of diamonds and pastel- colored sapphires in 18 carat yellow gold. A South Sea cultured pearl has an unusual liaison with diamonds in 18 ct. white gold in the “Caprice” pendant from the Couture Collection. “Amarill” is the name of the new ring from the Classic Collection. Diamonds in 18 ct. white gold put a Tahiti culture pearl perfectly in scene. SCHUMANN DESIGN (A2 331) In addition to articulated and rubber bracelets with World Cup emblem, there is even an official pendant – for a dog – in the World Cup collection from Schumann Design. 7 RUTH SELLACK (B2 123) The Stuttgart designer interprets the rosary with her new creation “Rosario” and brings it to life artistically with gems, pearls and coral. Although Ruth Sellack maintains the original arrangement of the rosary, her “Rosarios” have various symbols from throughout the world and from all religions. Consequently, every woman can rediscover her own symbols by attaching symbols, which she considers personally important, regardless of whether cross, Buddha or horseshoes alongside of a baby tooth. TENO DESIGN (B1 113 A) The new designer jewelry collection from TeNo shines in a bright white. White ceramics in geometric shapes are set in ear jewelry, rings, bracelets and pendants made of cool, stainless steel.

The collection has been expanded with solid 750 gold elements this year. All variants are on the gold ShiKou elements with Pavée diamonds arranged parallel, which conjure a very striking play of light on the bracelets.
