Jewellery shows make comeback


Twin shows are one of the world’s premier industry showcases.


The 40th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and 10th Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), are back this month, returning to the two fairs, two venues format for the first time since the pandemic.

The Diamond, Gem & Pearl show will take place at AsiaWorld-Expo from 27 February to 2 March, while the Jewellery Fair will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 29 February to 4 March, bringing sourcing and global trade opportunities for industry players.

Fine jewellery exports from Hong Kong rebounded significantly last year, rising 23% to HK$87.8 billion (US$11.2 billion) year-on-year and 40% higher than in pre-pandemic 2019.

There was strong growth in exports to Mainland China, which recorded a year-on-year increase of more than 20%, and the United States and Switzerland, which increased 16% and 82% year-on-year, respectively.

Supported by jewellery trade associations and organisations from all over the world, the fairs feature 36 geographic and industry pavilions from Mainland China to Thailand, Germany to Brazil.

Industry pavilions returning include the Tanzanite Foundation, Asia Pacific Creators Association and International Coloured Gems Association, while the T-GOLD+METS Pavilion co-organised by Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers’ Association and Italian Exhibition Group makes its debut, showcasing jewellery manufacturing machinery.

The Hong Kong International Jewellery Show contains 18 zones, which features 78 global exhibitors showcasing stunning diamond, gemstone, jade and pearl jewellery.

These include Hong Kong exhibitor Hatta New World Company Limited, which will showcase a jewellery set that carries about 110 carats of Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline pieces, worth over HK$15 million. The bright-blue Paraiba is one of the rarest precious stones on Earth.

The Designer Galleria showcases collections and a number of culturally inspired creative designs this year. Japanese exhibitor Jewellery of Raden & Urushi presents Mizuhiki, a brooch incorporating traditional Japanese craftsmanship.

Hong Kong exhibitor Charming Jewellery Ltd brought its La broderie brand, which features embroidery, a National Intangible Cultural Heritage. Hong Kong embroidery masters used silk threads to create vivid illustrations of butterflies, dragonflies and orchids, sewn together with gold accessories and jewellery pieces, crafting exquisite workmanship and elegant pieces.

The Hall of Fame will feature international brands, including Giorgio Visconti from Italy, Chete from Hong Kong, Carrera Y Carrera from Spain and Lao Feng Xiang from Mainland China.

The Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show will bring together a wide range of diamonds, gemstones and pearl exhibitors in 11 zones, which will showcase top-quality white and coloured diamonds, high-end gemstones, rare pearls and other raw materials from all over the world.

Participating countries and regions include Zhuji City in Zhejiang province, once again bringing freshwater pearls to the show. The Japan Pavilion will again showcase a wide range of quality pearls to the show.

More than 30 seminars, exhibitor forums and parades at the twin jewellery shows will showcase the latest design trends and facilitate industry exchange.

This year, the HKTDC Marketplace App and official websites of the two shows will allow buyers to register before the fair, authenticate themselves through the App and download their verified eBadge for direct entry. Buyers can also use the App’s Scan2Match function, launched last year to facilitate online-to-offline engagements between buyers and exhibitors.

Under the EXHIBITION+ hybrid mode, buyers can make purchases on-site and search for products and services on the sourcing platform. From now until 11 March, buyers and exhibitors can conduct online discussions through Click2Match.
