Hong Kong returns with the International Jewellery Show and Diamond Gem & Pearl Show

From 27th February to 4th March, two simultaneous events will transform the Asian megalopolis into the capital of global jewelry 

Fifty years’ experience in the world of jewelry. This is the sum of the 40 years of the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and 10 years of the Hong Kong International Diamond Gem & Pearl Show, both organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). Two shows in two venues that, in the vein of the claim "Be Part of the Splendid Legacy", are expected to attract over 4,000 exhibitors from more than 40 countries to the Asian megalopolis with a good 60% of foreign companies and buyers from 65 nations. The five days of the event will also be a moment of debate and cultural growth with a program of 30 seminars, events and parades, as well as the presentation of a market trend analysis conducted by FRED, an LVMH jewelry brand. To this regard, it is worth remembering that last year, Hong Kong’s fine jewelry exports increased by 23% to reach 87,8 billion Hong Kong dollars, 40% more compared to the pre-pandemic period, with a considerable growth in exports to Mainland China recording a year-on-year increase of over 20%, as well as to the United States and Switzerland, with year-on-year increases of 16% and 82% respectively.

Going into more detail, the Diamond, Gem & Pearl show will take place at the AsiaWorld-Expo from 27th February to 2nd March, while the International Jewellery Show will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 29th February to 4th March. Sophia Chong, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC, said: “The theme of this year’s jewelry shows is "Be Part of the Splendid Legacy" and with more than 4,000 exhibitors from over 40 countries and regions expected to attend, the overall scale of the shows is close to pre-pandemic levels, accentuating Hong Kong’s status as an international trade and jewelry sourcing center."

Supported by jewelry trade associations and organizations from all over the world, the two shows will host exhibitors subdivided into geographical areas: Belgium, Brazil, Mainland China, Colombia, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey while Malaysia will be making its debut. Returning regulars will include the Tanzanite Foundation, Asia Pacific Creators Association and International Coloured Gems Association, while the T-GOLD+METS Pavilion (co-organized by the Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers' Association and Italian Exhibition Group) will debut to focus on jewelry manufacturing machinery. The Hong Kong International Jewellery Show will be subdivided into 18 zones, including the Hall of Extraordinary, which will host 78 brands showcasing stunning diamond, gemstone, jade and pearl jewelry. An example of the “extraordinary hall” will be the Hong Kong exhibitor Hatta New World Company Limited, which will be exhibiting a jewelry set with about 110 carats of Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline pieces (a necklace, ring and pair of earrings), worth over HK$15 million. 

One of the areas of definite appeal will be the Designer Galleria with a series of culturally inspired creative designs. Japanese exhibitor Jewellery of Raden & Urushi will be presenting the public with Mizuhiki, a brooch incorporating traditional Japanese craftsmanship. Inspired by the Japanese art of knotting, the brooch is decorated with a black pearl, diamond and green garnet with knotted lacquered elements, giving its design a fashionable touch. Hong Kong exhibitor Charming Jewellery Ltd will be bringing its La broderie brand, which features embroidery, a national intangible cultural heritage. Hong Kong embroidery masters used silk threads to create vivid illustrations of butterflies, dragonflies and orchids, sewn together with gold accessories and jewelry items, crafting exquisite workmanship and elegant pieces. 

The Hall of Fame, on the other hand, will feature a series of international brands including Giorgio Visconti from Italy, Chete from Hong Kong, Carrera Y Carrera from Spain and Lao Feng Xiang from mainland China.

The Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show will gather together a wide range of diamond, gemstone and pearl exhibitors in 11 zones, including three high-end product areas – Hall of Fine Diamond, Treasures of Nature and Treasures of Ocean – where visitors will be able to admire top-quality white diamonds, colored diamonds, high-end gemstones, rare pearls and other raw materials from all over the world, including Color Diamond Trading Co’s rare orange fancy color diamond weighing 1.03 carats, a true collector’s item. Participating countries and regions will include Zhuji (Zhejiang) from Mainland China, once again bringing freshwater pearls to the show, while the Vice Governor of Henan will personally lead the province’s hall. Lastly, as always, the Japan Hall will be the target for those in search of quality pearls.
