Gold/Italy A Middling Fair
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.”
