Press Releases GJEPC to Organize 2nd Edition of India Diamond Week at Mumbai in October Published 2 years ago on October 10, 2018 By INSTORE Staff Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) MUMBAI – After the success of its first edition and increasing demand from the buyers as well as sellers, GJEPC is all set to organize the 2nd edition of India Diamond Week in Mumbai from 23 – 25 October 2018. This year, India Diamond Week will be held on the side lines of World Diamond Council’s AGM and World Federation of Diamond Bourses’ Meet at Mumbai. Mr. Pramod Agrawal, GJEPC chairman said, “This Diamond Week is distinct, as it would witness key stakeholders of the Global Diamond trade this year with GJEPC hosting the World Diamond Council’s AGM in Mumbai around the same time. This format of Buyer Seller Meet provides immense opportunity to discuss business face to face, and strengthen trade ties with buyers. We are overwhelmed with the response in this edition with over 100 buyers confirmed to visit Mumbai for the Diamond Week from all major key diamond markets of the world including the USA, China, Hong Kong, Israel, Russia, Europe, South Africa, Turkey, Middle East, Iran, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, & South Korea”. “Today India plays a pioneering role in the development of value-added diamond cutting, with the sector cutting and polishing 14 out of 15 diamonds set in jewellery worldwide. India brings diamonds to life – every size from the smallest to the largest. After creating a niche for itself in the diamond world with small diamonds, India has also developed skillset for cutting and polishing larger stones and fancy cuts.” Mr. Pramod Agrawal added. The gem & jewellery exports accounted for USD 41 billion in 2017-18. The growth in the sector was primarily driven by the Cut & Polished Diamonds (CPD) segment, which witnessed an increase of 4.17%. The export sales of CPD grew to USD 23732.96 million during FY 2017-18 from USD 22,783.85 million in the corresponding period in FY 2016-17. Mr. Colin Shah, GJEPC vice chairman said, “Indian Diamond Industry is labour intensive and employs 2 million workforce in the diamond sector alone. Value addition is the key focus for the industry. Indian Diamond trade is committed to four pillar principles of fair trade. One, it leads in self regulation encouraged through My KYC amongst GJEPC members. Two, sustainable development, created through model programs for the health and welfare of its workers such as Swasthya Ratna . Three, it plays a dominant role in global diamond advertising. Four, it is building state-of-the-art gemological laboratories that ensure diamonds are natural, well-crafted and ethically sourced. Advertisement The India Diamond Week is aimed at creating an annual trading platform increasing communication between diamantaires and promoting business globally. We believe that the event would further establish and strengthen new sourcing relationships.” The first two days of the event will have pre-fixed one-2-one meeting of approximately 30 minutes between the buyer and seller, and the 3rd day would be an open exhibition. There are around 40 manufacturers/exhibitors participating at the event. Some of the confirmed companies for the event include Amrut Gems, Anand International, Asian Star, Dirgh Diamond Pvt.

Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.” You may like GJEPC Signs MoU with eBay 500+ International Buyers from 56 Countries Participate at the First Ever International Gem & Jewellery Show IIJS Virtual 2.0 To Put The G&J Industry Back On The Fast Track Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
