(Press Release)
The 29th edition of the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair has opened at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Occupying more than 70,000 square meters of exhibition space, the four-day fair runs until June 26 with more than 2,200 exhibiting companies from 41 countries and regions.

“During an economic slowdown, companies choose to exhibit in reputable trade events that attract quality buyers. This edition of the June Fair is seeing many repeat exhibitors. This shows the June Fair offers genuine benefits to them,” says Celine Lau, director of jewelry fairs at UBM Asia.

The fair features 16 specialty themed pavilions. One of the major highlights is the Diamond Pavilion, which houses about 500 local and overseas diamantaires. The Gemstone Pavilion meanwhile features more than 500 international gemstone suppliers.

Lau added that the top 10 sources of pre-registered visitors are: Hong Kong, mainland China, India, Taiwan, the United States, the Philippines, Australia, Japan, Korea and Thailand. The top 10 account for 86 percent of the total pre-registered visitors. “Furthermore, we are also glad to welcome buyer delegations from mainland China, Iran, Israel, Russia and Vietnam to our fair. Sixteen groups of delegations from China participate. The potential of emerging market is remarkable,” she says.

The June Fair also offers participants various learning opportunities. GRS Lab and the Gemmological Association of Hong Kong will host seminars on timely industry topics. On June 25, the GRS Lab will discuss its new book titled “Pigeon Blood Valley” and share the latest market intelligence about rubies from the city of Mogok, Myanmar. The Gemmological Association of Hong Kong will discuss the technology for identifying laboratory-grown diamonds.


Mineral, Gem and Fossil Asia is held concurrently at the Convention Hall in HKCEC. The all-in-one marketplace gives buyers the opportunity to source a wide range of rare mineral specimens, rough gemstones and fossils. Buyer entry to the mineral show is free.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
