IIJS Signature 2022 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, NESCO

Event to be organized from 18th-21st February.




(PRESS RELEASE) MUMBAI — IIJS Signature 2022, the most-awaited jewelry event of the first half of the year, has been now rescheduled to be held from 18th – 21st February at Bombay Exhibition Centre Goregaon, NESCO. The show was initially scheduled in first week of January 2022, but Council decided to postpone the show due to surge in Covid-19 cases at that point of time.

Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “IIJS Signature is an important jewellery show of the calendar, which caters to the sourcing needs of Gem & Jewellery retailers and wholesalers from across the world. GJEPC is encouraged by the fact that more than 871 exhibitors are participating in the show, occupying 1,472 booths. More than 12,000 visitors have already registered for the event, which indicates that the market is yearning for design innovation and refilling their inventory.

Mr Shailesh Sangani, Convener, National Exhibitions of the Council stated that “IIJS Signature was planned in early January, however due to the pandemic scenario in India that were beyond our control, the show had to be postponed.

Now, as the Covid cases are receding in Maharashtra and circumstances seem favorable, we are all geared up to organize the show from 18th to 21st February at NESCO. We are fortunate to have the support of our exhibitors and visitors, whose participation makes this show a grand success every year.”

Mr Colin Shah, Chairman also informed that “The industry has recovered well from the pandemic low point, and we are expecting to close the fiscal year on a positive note with exports of close to USD 41.67 billion, and IIJS Signature will give the industry the required boost in the final quarter.”

IIJS Signature 2022 will have well-defined and simplified product sections which include Gold & Gold CZ Studded Jewellery; Diamond, Gemstone & Other Studded Jewellery; Silver Jewellery, Artifacts & Gifting Items; Loose Stones, and Laboratories & Education.


GJEPC will follow all Government-mandated Covid-19 protocols to ensure the safety of all concerned. All attendees are required to comply with covid safety protocols as per the State Government norms. GJEPC will maintain highest level of hygiene standards in the entire exhibition area. There will be mandatory thermal scans and hand sanitization at the entry points. Entry will be permitted only to visitors with at least two vaccine doses.



When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
