The Gem & Jew­ellery Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Coun­cil (GJEPC) held the India Sil­ver & Fash­ion Jew­ellery Buyer-Seller Meet (BSM) in Jaipur, Ra­jasthan, from June 12th14th. The event in­cluded an open meet­ing day be­tween in­vited buy­ers and ex­hibitors.

Over 20 sil­ver jew­ellery man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies show­cased their man­u­fac­tur­ing skills to 39 in­ter­na­tional buy­ers con­sist­ing of sil­ver jew­ellery whole­salers, re­tail­ers, traders and chain stores from the tar­geted re­gions, namely, Al­ge­ria, Aus­tralia, Egypt, Eng­land, Ire­land, Jor­dan, UAE, USA, Spain, Kuwait and Thai­land.

The event was in­au­gu­rated by GJEPC chair­man Pramod Agrawal, re­gional chair­man Nir­mal Bardiya,

and sil­ver panel con­vener Ram Babu Gupta along with in­ter­na­tional buy­ers and ex­hibitors from India.

Speak­ing at the in­au­gu­ra­tion, Agrawal said, “The BSM has been or­gan­ised with an ob­jec­tive to meet the cur­rent busi­ness needs of the sil­ver jew­ellery in­dus­try and to fur­ther es­tab­lish and strengthen new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties and pro­mote busi­ness glob­ally. The three-day busi­ness match­ing pro­gramme will be an ideal op­por­tu­nity to show­case India’s strength and ca­pa­bil­i­ties in man­u­fac­tur­ing sil­ver jew­ellery, which is in de­mand due to its ex­clu­siv­ity and crafts­man­ship, whether it’s ma­chine-made or hand­made.

“Made in India sil­ver jew­ellery has grad­u­ally made a mark in in­ter­na­tional mar­kets with re­mark­ably good de­signs, bold use of di­a­monds and coloured gem­stones, thereby adding more value ad­di­tion. I am sure buy­ers saw a range of in­no­va­tive and trendy jew­ellery as per their needs and re­quire­ments.”

India’s gross ex­ports of sil­ver jew­ellery for the pe­riod April 2018 to March 2019 were $837.81 mil­lion.

Ac­cord­ing to the Coun­cil, the event was an op­por­tu­nity for the buy­ers to un­der­stand the In­dian sil­ver sec­tor bet­ter for their sourc­ing needs, in­clud­ing the sup­ply chain, busi­ness prac­tices and cul­ture. “I am sure the buy­ers and sell­ers made the most out of this plat­form to fur­ther es­tab­lish and strengthen new sourc­ing re­la­tion­ships and pro­mote busi­ness glob­ally,” added Agrawal.
