(PRESS RELEASE) MUMBAI — India’s gem and jewelry exports witnessed a 16% growth in October 2021 versus 2019, owing to strong demand from key export destinations, especially the US. Overall gross exports of Gems & Jewelry in October amounted to US$ 4170.59 million (Rs. 31241.090 crore) as compared to US$ 3610.07 million (Rs.  25647.06 crore) for the same period in 2019.

During April – October 2021, the overall gross exports of gems & jewelry at US$ 23658.13 million (Rs. 175373.01 crore) grew 4.82 % (10.71 % in Rs term) as compared to US$ 22570.41 million (Rs. 1,58,404.21 crore) in 2019.

Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “The overall sentiment in the gem and jewelry industry is quite positive. Manufacturing activity peaked in the pre-Diwali period, reflected by the 16% jump in exports for October due to strong demand from key markets, led by the US. I estimate that this spike would be immediately followed by a dip in manufacturing activity as most companies closed for the traditional Diwali break. However, I am hopeful that the momentum will recover in last quarter of the financial year, thus helping us to achieve our goal of USD 41.75 billion in exports for the year 2021-22.”

The overall gross export of cut & polished diamonds at US$ 2560.27 million (Rs. 19178.5 crores) in month of OCT 2021 grew 31.11% (38.22 % in Rs. Term) as compared to US$ 1952.82 million (Rs. 13875.46 crores) for the same period of 2019.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
