From Yamanashi – the prefecture known as “the true home of Japanese jewellery” – the Yamanashi Jewellery Fair will be held in Bangkok for the fist time next month.



Ornamental ware featuring pearls, diamonds and other gemstones will be delighting eyes at the Gochiso Space on the sixth floor of Isetan Bangkok at CentralWorld from September 1 to 3. 

Then, in Challenger Halls 1-3 at Impact Arena from September 7 to 11, there’ll be a Yamanashi Pavilion at the Bangkok Gems and Jewellery Fair. 

Oyster fresher than ever

Rolex has unveiled the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 with redesigned case-sides and lugs. In 18-carat white, yellow or Everose gold, the new versions are equipped with Calibre 2236. Among the many combinations available, one in 18-carat white gold is fitted with a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond-set bezel. 

Like all Rolex watches, the new-generation Datejust 31 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance. The refined middle case is crafted from a solid block of gold. The winding crown fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofing system screws down securely. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is virtually scratchproof sapphire. 

Integral for your skin

French skincare maker Sisley is touring Sisleya L’Integral Anti-Age: Firming concentrated Serum, which awakens elastin production and enhances skin tension. It helps improve production of the enzyme LOXL-1 to ensure the elastin is functioning properly. The skin becomes firmer, denser and more toned. 

Phyto-Complexe Pro-Firm 7 is an all-new complex of seven powerful botanical extracts that work on all the structural levels of the dermis, restoring the firmness and shape of younger skin. 

Warn tones, cool lights

Carisa Janes, founder and chief executive of Hourglass, was in Bangkok recently to introduce the American cosmetics brand renowned for its vegan makeup and ingredients free of parabens and sulphates. Hourglass products contain no contaminants and won’t trigger allergic reactions. They’re never tested on animals.
