Gold/Italy A Mid­dling Fair

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Gold/Italy, the sec­ond autumn trade show of jew­ellery made in Italy, ended as ex­pected. Visi­tor at­ten­dance was 8% higher than the pre­vi­ous year, which is sig­nif­i­cant in view of the slack gold ex­port mar­kets es­pe­cially in the UAE and North Africa.

“The bal­ance be­tween the com­bi­na­tion of gold and fash­ion jew­ellery is on the rise this year,” noted Andrea Boldi, pres­i­dent of Arezzo Fiere and Con­gressi of the fourth edi­tion of Gold/Italy.

“For the first time we had buy­ers from In­dia, Saudi Ara­bia, Qatar and Bahrain. We are con­fi­dent that the or­ders placed will help turn around end-of-the-year sales. There has been only a mod­est sig­nal from the in­ter­nal mar­ket. With re­spect to sil­ver­ware, it was a cash and carry area at the show.”
