The signing ceremony followed a highly successful visit to the Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) by Mr Mehta and Mr Shah where SDE member companies and the exchange’s leadership heard about the benefits of participating in the Bharat Diamond Week.

“The agreements signed with the professional organizations from Thailand are the latest step in ensuring we have an excellent number of visitors to the Bharat Diamond Week,” said Mr Mehta. “I am delighted that our friends and colleagues from Thailand, who we know so well, will be taking part in the BDW.”

Mr Shah, who is responsible for the Bharat Diamond Week and organized the two successful polished diamond events held last year, said: “It is very important that we work with organizations from across the diamond and jewelry world. Our aim is to raise visitor numbers at every show and to learn from the previous event how to be even more successful for the benefit of our small and medium-size company members. Visitors will be able to source literally every type of diamond both at the Diamond Week and from our other 3,000 Bharat Diamond Bourse member companies.

“Close to 90% of all the world’s polished diamonds are manufactured in India, so the variety of goods on offer is vast. In addition, the show falls just before the Diwali festival and shutdown, so many manufacturers will be offering excellent deals on their polished goods.

“Furthermore, due to the uncertainty of the situation in Hong Kong due to civil unrest with the September Gem and Jewelry Show just weeks away, we believe it is likely that many companies that need to source diamonds will decide to come here instead. The Bharat Diamond Week will act as a perfect venue for companies to source their diamond demands,” said Shah.

The number of companies and individuals who have registered for the show is already far ahead of those for the two previous shows. And, as with the two shows held last year, the BDB will provide selected buyers with complimentary hotel accommodation, with around 150 complementary hotel rooms for foreign buyers. Priority will be given to visitors who are members of bourses affiliated to the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB), but all members of the diamond trade across the world are welcome to participate.

Each Indian company that wins the right to display at the Bharat Diamond Week is entitled to one booth. Since trading in synthetic or lab-grown diamonds.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
