Get your feet wet with the Inhorgenta show in Munich first. I have
attended several times, and would recommend it to anyone. Haven't
attended Basel yet, as it is larger, more costly to attend, and
demographically tuned to those who serve the obscenely wealthy.
In short, Inhorgenta is about the making of jewellery. Basel is about
the making of money. I hope to be able to eat my words next year, if
the folks at Basel want to make an effort to refute their reputation.
