President of the Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) Lin Qiang will be the guest of honor at the 2019 Bharat Diamond Week.

(PRESS RELEASE) MUMBAI, INDIA – The Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) in Mumbai has welcomed the announcement from the Gem and Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) that it will be holding a specially organized buyer-seller meeting at around the same time as the third edition of the Bharat Diamond Week (BDW) which takes place at the bourse from 14 to16 October.

The GJEPC will be holding its 3rd India Diamond Week Buyer-Seller Meet in Mumbai from October 15-17.

“I am delighted that the GJEPC event will be taking during the time of the Bharat Diamond Week,” said Bharat Diamond Bourse Vice-President Mehul Shah, who heads the BDW. “It is critical for the Indian diamond industry that we have these two special events taking place. The fact that they are taking place at more or less the same time creates a great deal of excitement and many business opportunities. We are delighted to welcome all visitors to the GJEPC event to take part in the Bharat Diamond Week where their entry will be smoothly organized.”

BDB President Anoop Mehta is also upbeat about the two large events taking place in Mumbai. “The Bharat Diamond Bourse and the Gem and Jewelry Export Promotion Council are the two largest and most important organizations representing our trade in India and promoting it abroad. I am very happy that these two events will be taking place during the same week as it helps us create a critical mass of attendees. We welcome all visitors and buyers to the Bharat Diamond Bourse.”

Registration for the BDW opened at the end of last month, with scores of companies from India and across the world already registered. The 2019 BDW follows the first two such diamond fairs held last year, and will host delegations of buyers from China, Australia, and various Asian countries, which will greatly increase the number of visitors and buyers taking part, the organizers said.

The second edition of the Bharat Diamond Week last October hosted more than 1,000 visitors from India and across the world who did business with 150 Indian exhibitors of polished goods.

Mr Shah said: “We will be hosting delegations of foreign buyers as well as buyers from Israel, Dubai, some European countries and India. Our guest of honor will be the president of the Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) Lin Qiang who is also the vice president of WFDB. He will be leading a delegation of members from the SDE, and he will open the fair. I believe this is another step in broadening our links with the Shanghai Diamond Exchange which is an important part of the global diamond family.”

He added that, as with the two previous shows, the Bharat Diamond Bourse will provide selected buyers with complimentary hotel accommodation. “The Bharat Diamond Week provides members of the BDB with the opportunity to show the world the very large range of diamonds it can supply. We want to connect buyers and suppliers in a comfortable and relaxed environment in order to save them time and money. We will be allocating around 150 complementary hotel rooms for foreign buyers, so I would suggest that members of the diamond industry in India and worldwide register straight away. Priority will be given to visitors who are members of bourses affiliated to the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB), but all members of the diamond trade across the world are welcome to participate.”

Each Indian company that wins the right to display at the Bharat Diamond Week is entitled to one booth only. Trading of synthetic or lab-grown diamonds is banned in the BDB, so there will not be any such diamonds traded at the BDW.

Antonini Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold.

mm

Published

(PRESS RELEASE) MILAN — Antonini celebrates its century-spanning history with a significant collection in terms of both its wide and the bold choice made in the use of materials. Faithful to its history, which has seen the exclusive use of gold and diamonds for the ‘ready to wear’ collections, Sergio Antonini – the creative director of the brand – when designing the collection, he had in mind the malleability of gold and its most striking feature, which since antiquity and over the centuries has made it an immediately recognizable element: its sheen.

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold, be it yellow gold or white gold, embellished with subtle waves of diamonds that underline the sensual profiles or some hidden details of the jewels. Soft and supple shapes recall those of the ‘Anniversary’ collection – one of the most iconic and successful collections in the brand’s recent history, designed in 2009 for the company’s 90th anniversary. Very long chains, rings and earrings that shine amongst garments and hair and reveal even brighter stones set at a 45-degree angle. In the more luxe version, in white gold, the surface is completely covered with valuable F-color diamonds that are exceptionally brilliant and sparkly.

Antonini’s dual soul is reflected in the two variants that each of its collections are organized into: yellow gold and white gold, to meet the taste of their markets of reference. From the US that loves white gold and imposing sizes, to Japan that prefers minimal jewelry, passing through the countries of the Russian area where the more traditional yellow gold triumphs.

Since 1919 in the heart of Milan: this is the Antonini story, a company which for three generations has been making jewelry with a unique and recognizable design, directly influenced by the motivation that the city offers, architecture, design and contemporary art, all passions that Sergio Antonini enjoys in his daily life. Beauty and culture are distinctive elements of the showroom in Piazza Borromeo 12: a place of a poignant artistic enchantment, a circle of extraordinary frescoes from the fifteenth century situated in an architectural context that has its roots in the history of the city. In a district where the medieval guilds had their own laboratories, giving the neighborhood its well-known street names: via Orefici, via Moneta, via Zecca, via del Bollo, via Spadari, via Armorari… In such a context, only exclusive creations such as those of Antonini can be made.
