The Diamond Studded Jewellery VBSM has 13 Diamond Jewelry manufacturers from India and 29 International buyers from USA, UK, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Algeria.

Suresh Kumar, joint secretary, MoC&I, Govt. of India said, “Virtual Buyer-Seller Meet has been a very successful format, especially during this pandemic. This initiative has unlocked manifold opportunities by reaching out to buyers from not only the traditionally strong export markets like the USA, UK, Europe, ME and Hong Kong/China, but also non-traditional ones such as Latin America, Eastern Europe and many more.”

Colin Shah, chairman, GJEPC said, “The demand for diamond jewelry over Christmas, Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day was better than expected. And I believe the upward trend would further get traction in the coming months as there is ease in covid crisis. The 6 VBSMs we organised during the pandemic last year were very successful. Organising the 7th VBSM for Diamond Studded Jewellery, and following it with Loose diamonds and platinum jewelry, we would like to continue to connect buyers and sellers through this format as there are still travel restrictions. I believe, VBSMs will remain to be an effective way for conducting and exploring new business opportunities.”

Mr. Dilip Shah, convener, Exhibitions International Exhibitions said, “India, being the preferred destination for sourcing the gem and jewelry, and as the Covid restrictions are eased in most parts of the world, buyers look forward to us for their inventory needs. And I believe, as there are still travel restrictions, Virtual Buyer Seller Meet is an ideal way to connect buyers and sellers from the comfort of home/office.”


Manufacturers participating at the Diamond Studded Jewellery VBSM are Savio Jewellery, Tanvirkumar & CO., Illusion Solitaire Diamond Jewellery LLP; Diamond Insights; Gurjar Gems PVT. LTD.; Uni Design Jewellery PVT. LTD; Asian Star CO. LTD.; GNS Jewellery; Sunshine Corporation; Karma Enterprises; K.G.K. Creations (INDIA) PVT. LTD.; Shankar Jewels LTD; and D.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
