UltraLuxe, anchored by Asia's most prestigious festival JeweLuxe, will make its debut this year at the TENT@Ngee Ann City from 21 – 30 October. It is also augmented by two inaugural shows, the Advocacy show that curates the purposeful and meaningful, and the Singapore Watch Fair. A world-first in presenting a strategic, differentiated and expanded version of luxury, UltraLuxe is a movement that promotes compelling talents and passions behind inspiring, meaningful and purposeful designs that span across jewellery, timepiece, fashion and living.
The inaugural UltraLuxe 2022 presents the 'Luxury of Niche' that brings together a world-class curation of haute design and meticulous craft from nearly 90 internationally-acclaimed independent jewellery designers and houses, prestige watchmakers, celebrated fashion designers and living style brands. The festival is also supported by the Singapore Tourism Board.
Exhibition aside, UltraLuxe allows shoppers to purchase iconic jewels and watches from around the world. A variety of diamonds and unique gems will be presented by independent jewellery designers to showcase their designs, such as the State Property pearl necklace that show game-changing minimalism that is always accompanied by design features unique to the brand. Guests and visitors also can discover the ancient craft of jewellery and watchmaking while getting connected with nature and culture.
UltraLuxe gives consumers an experience like never before. With themes of 'Icons and Legacies' and 'Wonders & Passion', JeweLuxe revitalises the tradition of craft and presents the curation of rare and exceptional pieces that materialise in the form of luxurious, gem-studded legacy necklaces.
Tradition aside, the exhibition will also showcase the designers' passion for tasteful and creative cuts, plus the setting of precious gems to create wondrous jewellery. Be enthralled by the 30-carat Emerald Cut D Colour ring from Morcha or the luxe diamond studded blue sapphire in hearts necklace by Infiniti Jewels that should not be missed at the exhibition.

The Advocacy Show
With a focus on purposeful luxury that sustains and elevates nature, culture, talent, passions and the community, The Advocacy Show is a first-of-its-kind exhibition that curates cross-industry collaboration.
Featuring brands that are built on meaning and imbued with purpose, the Advocacy Show brings together the world of fashion, jewellery and living to present a new vision of luxury for a new generation of shoppers. With currated themed showcases such as Duchess & Queen, Urban Manifesto, The New Modern, NeueLuxe, Fashion of Asia, and The Studio, the designers under each category will present iconic styles and pieces.

The Singapore Watch Fair aims to become Asia's most distinct and respected hub for watchmaking. The exhibition will feature local and international brands such as Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, Furlan Marri, Behrens, Patek Philippe ref. 2499/100 and Singer Reimagined. Within an immersive and luxurious exhibition space, visitors can participate in engaging activities that consist of historical displays and world-class watchmaking content. Guests also can gain insights from curators, watchmakers, designers and experts through 'Talking Time' – a lineup of masterclasses featuring Carson Chan and Alexandre Bigler.
