“We are thrilled to bring together the most exquisite high jewelry and collectible watches, celebrating the excellence that deﬁnes our industry,” said Dalila Daffara, founder of The Unique Show. “Our boutique events are a tribute to the unparalleled art of design, craftsmanship, ﬂawless materials, and heritage that distinguish the participating companies. As a high jewelry expert myself, together with my team, we carefully selected exhibitors to captivate collectors and connoisseurs who recognize and appreciate the exceptional. We ﬁrmly believe that goldsmithing and watchmaking are not just crafts; they are notable arts, rich in precious traditions and profound emotions, often overlooked in their narration. These arts serve as treasure chests, encapsulating memories that transcend generations. The excellence, hidden within these masterpieces, deserves to be unveiled. It is this conviction that led us to establish The Unique Show – a format dedicated to unraveling the stories of uniqueness woven into every one-of-a-kind piece, ensuring that the brilliance of these timeless creations resonates through the ages.”
