Today, Princess Marie officially opened the New Nordic Jewellery & Watch Show at the Bella Center in Copenhagen as Patron. The New Nordic Jewellery & Watch Show is an exclusive trade show for the watch and jewellery industry.
After being welcomed by 8 years old Sigrid, Marie officially opened the fair by cutting a gold chain. Princess Marie then toured the fair and stopped at several stands to meet with the designers and ask more about their company.
While the fair is first and foremost a trade fair, it also aims to promote new jewelers as well as jewelers specialized in the use of gold in their designs. Indeed, two competitions take place during the three-day fair: The New Nordic Gold and the Brand New Nordic – New Talents championships. More about those from the fair’s press release: ” For three days, the most talented newly-learned goldsmiths from all over the Nordic region are dying for the prestigious title: Nordisk Mester i Guldsmedehandværk.
The task that the participants must perform has a degree of difficulty that challenges their craft skills to the utmost. It follows the participants very closely for three days and sees how they each transform the drawing and the measured amount of gold into one amazing jewelry. Each of the Nordic countries can make up two representatives.[…] Brand New is an established concept that supports new national and international talents in the industry. During the three days of the fair, this year’s participants have a unique opportunity to show their own design and create commercial opportunities and contacts with resellers and more. At the same time, the participants compete to become the New Nordic Brand of the Year”
When asked by Billed-Bladet what makes a jewel perfect, Marie said that it had more to do with the person who gives the jewel than the design of the jewel. You can see the video here.
Princess Marie wore her Giambattista Valli white and red floral printed ruffled dress. She first wore this dress back in June 2017.
She wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ nude suede pumps and her Bottega Veneta clutch. She had already chosen the same shoes and pumps the first time she wore this dress.
Her earrings date back to 2010 and there are still UFOs. I can spot her engagement ring in photos as well as another ring on her left hand but the photos aren’t good enough so I can’t tell which one it is or if it’s new.
We’ll next see Princess Marie on August 23rd when she opens the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival as Patron.
