With this the gem & jewelry sector has managed to achieve 45% of the total export target of USD 45.7 billion for the year 2022-23.

Vipul Shah, chairman, GJEPC said, “With a robust growth of gem & jewelry exports in September, the last quarter of the year is expected to be more fulfilling as sales will be driven by Holiday season and festivities. However, cut & polished diamond exports continue to remain flat, witnessing decline of 1.27% (in dollar) to US$ 12215.46 million for the period April to September 2022 as compared to the same period last year. On the other hand, Plain gold jewelry has continued to gain traction with average growth of 19.43% (in dollar) post the India-UAE CEPA. However, there are a few bottlenecks which if resolved would further boost the gem & jewelry trade between India and UAE. Lab-grown diamond exports continue to have a positive run, focused measures will further strengthen LGD exports from India.”

“The global consumer sentiments across key markets of USA, ME and HK have continued to be favorable for the sector. Thailand, Switzerland, Singapore have emerged as new growth markets. The sector has achieved 45% of its annual export target of USD 45.7 billion for the year 2022-23 and I am confident that if the current momentum continues in the 2nd half of the financial year, the sector is certain to achieve its set target.”

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
