This year, the theme of the India Design Gallery has been divided into two captivating categories. The first, “Objet Trouvé” (Found Objects), celebrates art crafted from typically non-artistic objects—whether natural or man-made, including vintage poker chips, antique coins, collected shells, vintage Venetian glass beads, buttons, beachcombed treasures, and more. These elements serve as wells of creative inspiration for conceptualizing contemporary wearable art pieces. Among the pieces on display are a hairpin made of pinecones laced with gold and diamonds, earrings crafted with old currency notes, linear gold danglers encrusted with Adenanthera pavonine seeds and more.

The second theme, “Unusual Materials,” sparks a jewelry design dialogue between the familiar and the unexpected, combining contrasting materials such as bamboo, wood, and leather with at least 50% precious metals. Jewelry designers have stepped out of their comfort zone to create interesting pieces including a bracelet articulated in gold and areca palm leaves, cufflinks crafted from leather, moss agate, gold and a discreetly fitted SIM card, and earrings designed with pistachio shells adorned with shades of plique-à-jour.

India is one of the preferred gem and jewelry sourcing destinations for the USA. Renowned for its commitment to ethical business practices, the Indian gem and jewelry industry has been a beacon of transparency and sustainability. With a strong emphasis on responsible sourcing and manufacturing processes, Indian jewelers adhere to the highest standards of integrity and social responsibility. The industry is deeply committed to supporting fair trade practices, ensuring that the gems and jewelry are sourced from legitimate and conflict-free origins, while promoting the welfare and rights of the artisans and workers involved.

The GJEPC organizes India Pavilions at renowned international exhibitions such as Vicenzaoro, the Hong Kong Show, and several others globally. GJEPC also engages in various trade promotion activities, including product-specific Buyer-Seller Meets and organizing delegations to significant gems and jewelry hubs worldwide.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
