A selection of specialist exhibits 

This year, the exhibition will provide dedicated space for niche exhibitors. The Hall of Extraordinary features valuable jewellery masterpieces from prestigious jewellers like Crivelli S.R.L from Italy, Thomas Faerber SA from Switzerland, and Dehres from Hong Kong. The Hall of Fame is ideal for those seeking brands of renown, while World of Glamour brings guests the best and brightest of local Hong Kong designers and manufacturers. Other special exhibits include the Designer Galleria, Hall of Jade Jewellery, Hall of Time, Treasures of CraftsmanshipAntique and Vintage Jewellery Galleria and the Wedding Bijoux.  

Unique themed zones

The Diamond, Gem and Pearl show will divide into zones, to best showcase the variety of stones and pearls on display. The four categories—Hall of Fine Diamonds showing diamonds of all carat-sizes; Treasures of Nature, displaying precious and semi-precious gems from different parts of the world; Treasures of the Ocean, showcasing quality pearls; and Rough Stone and Minerals, exhibiting raw materials—offer gem collectors a chance to speak intimately with the experts who know them best.

An opportunity for industry networking

The fairs are not simply for observation—grab the opportunity to engage with industry specialists through the networking reception, buyer’s forum and seminars: discussion topics will include 'Key attributes of an international laboratory report of coloured gemstones,' and 'Jewellery manufacturing quality assurance benchmarks.'  The social events throughout the fair are an excellent way to meet both those in the industry and those passionate about jewellery.

Those wanting to visit both shows can take advantage of the three overlap days (March 2-4), when there will be a courtesy shuttle bus between the two venues, allowing you easy access to both of these fantastic fairs.

The shows are for trade buyers aged 18 or above only.
