International jewellery and gemstone industry leaders will present their latest designs, collections and innovations at the 2023 edition of Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) in February.
A sourcing destination that is shaping up as a central meeting point for the jewellery community, JGT Dubai is anticipated to present the latest offerings of close to 400 exhibitors, including a high representation of fine jewellery suppliers, loose gemstone vendors and jewellery technology specialists, from February 12 to 14, 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). Online registration for trade visitors is now open.
JGT Dubai is jointly led by Informa Markets Jewellery, organiser of the world’s biggest fine jewellery marketplace – Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW), and Italian Exhibition Group SpA (IEG), organiser of Vicenzaoro, one of the most influential jewellery shows worldwide and the top European trade fair in the sector. The B2B fair is powered by DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre), JGT Dubai’s Official Partner, and the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group (DGJG), the fair’s Industry Partner.
Keen to transform their show stands into unique discovery destinations at JGT Dubai, exhibitors said their displays will be fully stocked with their newest and best offerings spanning finished jewellery, loose gemstones and jewellery technology solutions for 2023 and beyond.
Israel-based Yondor Diamonds HK Ltd is bringing top-quality natural diamonds from 2 carats to 60 carats up in a variety of shapes, colours and clarities, and with accompanying GIA reports. The company is well-known for its wide range of large diamonds, including a remarkable selection of 10-carat up diamonds in round and fancy shapes, a broad range of fancy colour diamonds and more.
Yondor described JGT Dubai as an “important event” that brings together many business opportunities and the chance to strengthen existing relationships and form new ones.
Major diamond manufacturer Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt Ltd (SRK) of India is also showcasing its products and capabilities through its diamond display and virtual reality presentation at JGT Dubai. The company specialises in the production of 0.30-carat to 30-carat natural diamonds in almost all clarities and shapes.
“We will be exhibiting our vivid range of natural diamonds, sustainably crafted at our green buildings. Along with loose stones, our stand will showcase our exclusively designed layouts in the form of necklaces and tennis bracelets, Twin Diamonds, and many more. The audience will get an opportunity to take a tour around our diamond crafting facility and view how the diamonds are crafted through our virtual reality presentation,” SRK said. The company is looking for buyers from high-end jewellery brands and retailers.
Coloured gemstones are also taking centre stage at JGT Dubai. Emerald 18 Ltd, a joint cooperative platform of Israel-based coloured gemstone manufacturers and traders Hargem Ltd and H Stark & Co Ltd, is offering an assortment of Africa-sourced emeralds, including single stones and layouts from 1 carat and higher with accompanying gemstone reports and in various price ranges.
This gemstone specialist also supplies “Quality Cut” rounds and princess-cut stones in sizes ranging from 1.75mm to 4mm, in increments of 0.25mm and in separate categories.
Hong Kong-based Blue Gems Supplier, for its part, is ready to showcase a rich and diverse selection of fine gems, including Paraiba tourmalines and other tourmalines in all colours, including rubellite, and green and pink tourmalines.
The company said it is introducing a wider variety of coloured gemstones to the Middle East market.
Meanwhile, La Prima Gioielli, a company that has been creating “Jewellery Art” with the “Made in Vicenza” label for more than 50 years, is also displaying its latest creations at JGT Dubai.
An example is the “Eldorado” Collection, which will debut in Dubai. Inspired by the mythical golden city of El Dorado, the collection consists of long necklaces, dangle earrings, rings and bracelets featuring irregular-shaped stone-like gold beads in textured finishes, which capture the raw beauty of gold nuggets.
Focused on the show theme, “The Centre of Business,” and positioned as “the B2B fair to expand international business into new markets,” JGT Dubai is pacing ahead in terms of exhibitor bookings. The second edition is projected to host about 400 major suppliers from more than 20 countries and regions, representing at least a 30% increase in exhibitor numbers compared with the inaugural show. To meet firm demand for booth locations, a new hall has been added, expanding the show’s gross exhibition space by 40 per cent to about 15,000sqm. The fair is likewise hosting the second annual JWA Dubai Awards Presentation Ceremony and Panel Discussion, which will take place on Day 1 of the fair. The regional edition of Informa Markets Jewellery’s Jewellery World Awards (JWA), JWA Dubai is one of the industry’s most prestigious yearly celebrations of exceptional individuals and businesses within the sector. The fair also precedes the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) Congress, which will be powered by DMCC from February 14 to 17 at the Almas Conference Centre. The Congress is one of the world’s biggest gatherings of leaders in the coloured gemstone sector.
