Lover’s of both fine jewelry and Gucci congregated, yesterday inside New York’s The Standard Hotel
to get a look, for the first time ever, behind the scenes at how luxury jewelry and timepieces are crafted. Some of Gucci’s most expert craftsmen from the La Chaux-de-Fonds workshop were, along with their materials and a workbench set-up, situated inside the Standard to reveal how these heirloom pieces are assembled. Starting Friday, the exhibit will move to Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Fine Jewelry Gallery. Visitors will be able to get an up close look at the Bamboo and 1921 Gucci timepiece models, which will be displayed.
