The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), an apex body of India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry, is bringing a 59-strong group of leading companies from the Indian gem and jewellery industry to Jewellery Arabia 2018 from 20 – 24 November at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Occupying 854 square metres of space across hall 1, hall 2 and the main entrance hall, the pavilion will showcase exquisite local craftsmanship and a wide selection of high-end and fine diamond jewellery.

“The Middle East remains one of the key focus areas for India and we will continue to put our concerted efforts into increasing gem and jewellery trade in this region. Jewellery preferences and design sensibilities in the Middle East are very similar to that of India, and this has been an advantage for our manufacturers. There is a substantial demand for Indian designed products from this region. In 2017, the Middle East accounted for USD 11.82 billion (28.18 %) of the total Indian gem and jewellery exports from India,” said GJEPC chairman Pramod Agrawal.

“The Jewellery Arabia platform continues to provide an opportunity for Indian traders to further enhance trade relationships with buyers from Middle East and its adjoining regions,” he continued.

Exhibitors within the India pavilion will showcase exquisite craftsmanship and jewellery collections including high-end diamond jewellery, gold and platinum jewellery, fine jewellery, loose diamonds, studded gold jewellery, designer handmade jewellery, bridal jewellery and exclusive pieces. Exhibitors will also showcase products that are specific to the tastes of Middle East market, including jewellery with colour stones, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and solitaire diamonds.
