Solitaire - - CONTENTS -

The In­dia Pavil­ion or­gan­ised by the Gem & Jew­ellery Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Coun­cil (GJEPC) at the June Hong Kong Jew­ellery & Gems Fair 2018 in­cluded 42 lead­ing gem and jew­ellery ex­hibitors.

The event was held from June 21st24th 2018 at the Hong Kong Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre (HKCEC) with an ex­cit­ing line-up of ex­hibitors and spe­cial events. The In­dia Pavil­ion had di­a­mond, jew­ellery and coloured gem­stone ex­hibitors lo­cated at Hall 3B-E (35 di­a­mond ex­hibitors), at Hall 5B-E (five gem­stone ex­hibitors), and at Hall 1C (two jew­ellery ex­hibitors). The fair main­tained its top spot as the most im­por­tant mid-year jew­ellery sourc­ing event in Asia. Oc­cu­py­ing 70,000 sq m of ex­hi­bi­tion space, the fair was strate­gi­cally di­vided into spe­cial­ity pav­il­ions, mak­ing sourc­ing eas­ier for buy­ers.

GJEPC chair­man Pramod Agrawal said, “Last year, Hong Kong was the largest ex­port mar­ket for the In­dian gem and jew­ellery in­dus­try. It has al­ways been our en­deav­our to give our man­u­fac­tur­ers the max­i­mum op­por­tu­nity to show­case their ex­quis­ite jew­ellery col­lec­tions to mar­kets in and around Hong Kong through this show. The June Hong Kong Jew­ellery & Gems Fair was rightly placed for mid-year jew­ellery sourc­ing in Asia and this time we had 42 gem and jew­ellery man­u­fac­tur­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing from In­dia un­der the In­dia Pavil­ion. The plat­form was an op­por­tu­nity for ex­hibitors to en­hance their ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships with buy­ers and cre­ate new ones.”

To­day, In­dia is renowned across the world as the des­ti­na­tion for sourc­ing qual­ity gems and jew­ellery. The ex­port of gems and jew­ellery ac­counted for $42 bil­lion in 2017. Hong Kong was the lead­ing ex­port des­ti­na­tion in 2017 with to­tal ex­ports pegged at $14 bil­lion or 33%. Ex­ports of cut and pol­ished di­a­monds to Hong Kong ac­counted for $10 bil­lion; gold jew­ellery ac­counted for $973.40 mil­lion, and coloured gem­stones ac­counted for $205.70 mil­lion.
