Renowned watch and jewellery houses will be making a return appearance at Jewellery Arabia 2021, including leading brands such as Asia Jewellers, Bahrain Jewellery Centre, Roberto Coin, Al Hashimi Pearls, Devji and many others. These high-profile international exhibitors use the event as a platform to showcase exclusive collections and limited-edition pieces to the Middle East buyers’market. The 29th edition of Jewellery Arabia also sees a 25% surge in the participation of new brands, amongst which Arnold & Son, Samer Halimeh, Gorgoglione and many more.
Complementing these iconic brands, Jewellery Arabia also offers an enriched experience to its shoppers with a variety of activities. In partnership with Bahrain Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (Danat), a pearl shucking experience, set up in the Main Entrance, provides the opportunity for shoppers to try their luck at opening oysters in search for the most beautiful natural pearl, mirroring Bahrain’s traditional pearl diving heritage.
In Hall 1’s main aisle, illustrator Spandana Bandari (a.k.a. Artsydoodler) welcomes you to her customisation station throughout the event to decorate your jewellery gift box. For the first time, Jewellery Arabia shoppers will get the chance to add their personal touch to their purchase – the result of a collaboration with ThePopUpShop.co, a home grown concept promoting local talents.
In a true reflection of jewellery as a form of art, visitors will be able to discover a unique art exhibition curated by local artist Maha Al Sahhaf, the personality behind ThePopUpShop.co. Located in Hall 2, the journey ‘Honestly Speaking’ inspired by female forms and celebrating femininity gathers the work of 5 local and international artists including Zayn Qahtani (Bahrain), Mays Al Moosawi (Oman), Spandana Bandari (Bahrain), Steben Alexander (Canada) and curator Maha Al Sahhaf herself.
With the aim of constantly improving exhibitor and visitor experience, increased food & beverage options are available including Nomad Café located in the Main Entrance serving light meals and refreshments, multiple seating arrangements in various areas as well as a new Paris-inspired main aisle of Hall 1. Moreover, to facilitate navigation around the event and find specific brands, visitors can download the Jewellery Arabia mobile application from Apple and Google Play stores.
