Selection Stones and Pearls

s t o n e s a n d P e a r l s 1 9 8 / B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n The Paul Wild OHG company, now ­managed in its tenth generation by Markus Wild, is one of the leading gemstone ­cutting enterprises in the world. With headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong and Brazil, as well as mines in Brazil and Africa, the company is present in the key locations of the international coloured gemstone trade. As a consequence, it enjoys access to the finest raw materials, such as demantoid, ruby, sapphire, emerald, tourmaline, ­aquamarine, beryl, morganite, tanzanite, tsavorite, rhodolite, mandarin garnet, blue topaz, amethyst, citrine, iolite, ­peridot, moonstone, alexandrite, ­chrysoberyll, ­spinel and kunzite. These are processed in the company’s own ­cutting workshops, ­incorporating special fully-automated ­cutting and polishing ­machines. Over one million gemstones are processed at Paul Wild each year, many of them in standard sizes for large orders, but ­un­usual individual pieces of outstanding quality are also created here. For example, last year a sensational 89-carat red spinel with cushion cut, presented at last year’s ­Baselworld. The special aspect here: this stone, in a very pure red with fine nuances of old rose and light grey, originates from a single, enormous, 55 kilogram spinel. A further strength of the company lies in pairs, sets and necklaces comprising stones of absolutely top quality. Markus Wild is particularly proud of a unique necklace of demantoids. Over the course of three years he assembled 50, perfectly- matching examples of this gemstone, with a total of 126.50 carats. This makes the necklace, which was also presented at last year’s Baselworld, the largest demantoid necklace in the world. This year Markus Wild has promised to bring something very special to Basel again.
