Jewelry & c at Brafa

Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium (and headquarters of EU Commission), but with the Brafa for a week is also the world center of antiques, including jewelery. For the uninitiated, the Brafa is the largest trade fair held in the spaces of the Tour & Taxis. It is repeated from 1955 and this year is home to 137 international art galleries (ten more than last year). In short, one of those events not to be missed for fans. There are not only the jewelry you see in these images: the nine days of opening can be seen more than 15 thousand works, which represent about 20 artistic types. The section dedicated to the jewelry includes galleries Epoquw Fine Jewels, Bernard Bouisset, Chamarande and Montaigne, offering antique jewelry, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and vintage alongside maison Boghossian and Leysen (pictured ring Alizé) exhibiting creations for the occasion. In addition, every day at 16, visitors can participate in Brafa Art Talks: a series of lectures as deepening of the different specializations of art on display (Saturday 30 there is also a meeting on the Egyptian Museum of Turin).
