GEMS & JEWELLERY GALORE
With the objective of giving an impetus to the Gems and Jewellery trade and positioning the Pink City on the World Gem & Jewellery Map, the annual Jaipur Jewellery Show (JJS) began in 2003 under the leadership of Late Rashmikant Durlabhji. While it started with just 67 stalls in the first edition, it grew from strength to strength each year and also witnessed better venues and facilities for its exhibitors and buyers making the show a force to reckon with not just in India but also internationally. Owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the show could not be organized each year. However, this year the exhibition will be organized from 24 December to 27 December at the Jaipur Exhibition and Convention Center in Sitapura.
800 BOOTHS AT THE 17TH JJS
Popularly known as The December Show, the 17th edition of Jaipur Jewellery Show will witness a whopping 800 booths this year. Out of these 800 booths, 500 will display jewellery, 204 will display gemstones, 64 will display machinery and 10 will showcase costumes, articles and artefacts. A unique aspect of the show is that not only the products but the way stalls are aesthetically created by each exhibitor is an added attraction.
JJS will also be providing free stalls to 15-20 budding jewellery designers. Apart from this, there will also be a stall of ‘Museum of Gem and Jewellery Federation’ in Jaipur. This time JJS will be attended by 82 new participants and several national brands. The show is expected to be attended by 40,000 domestic and foreign visitors who will get the opportunity to witness the latest and the finest of what the Gems & Jewellery industry has to offer. As many as 400 retailers have also confirmed their participation for the 17th JJS.
