HONG KONG,June 2019 – A world-leading marketplace for jewellery, gemstones, and industry-related design, manufacturing and retail solutions, the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair is offering its exceptional brand of sourcing experience to thousands of buyers starting from today.
Scheduled for June 20 to 23 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), the B2B show is training its spotlight on the latest product releases and market updates impacting the trade with its roster of more than 1,900 exhibitors from 40 countries and regions.
“The June Fair occupies a unique position in the industry,” says Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets. “It literally brings the jewellery world under one roof, and it is perfectly timed for wholesalers, retailers and distributors who are building up their seasonal essentials.”
Occupying 70,000 square metres of exhibition space at the HKCEC, the fair is divided into 21 theme and 18 group pavilions for easier navigation. New this year are two thematic zones – Technology and Lab-Grown Diamonds – and the Australia Pavilion under the national and group pavilions category.
The June Fair’s signature programming will also feature three seminars organised by ACODES (Colombian Association of Emerald Exporters), The Gemmological Association of Hong Kong and the Japan Pearl Promotion Society, which will highlight developments in the coloured gemstone and pearl sectors.
By-invitation-only events will also be held on the fair’s sidelines, including a Media Gathering, where the winners of the JNA Jewellery Design Competition 2018/19 will be announced. The JNA Awards will also reveal this year’s finalists across 11 categories at a separate media event.
Prominent names in the diamond will be unveiling collections in virtually every quality range at the Diamond Pavilion. The Fine Design Pavilion/Fine Gem Pavilion in the Grand Hall, one of the June Fair’s premier destinations, will likewise present some of the rarest gifts of nature – diamonds of the highest degree of fire and sparkle, and coloured gemstones of the most exceptional quality.
The fair is also known for its high concentration of established coloured gemstone dealers, offering unmatched opportunities in sourcing the “Big Three” of the gemstone world – ruby, sapphire and emerald – and other exceptional gemstones in a range of prices and qualities.
Pearls, the “Queen of Gems,” will also be widely available either loose or set in jewellery. Expect suppliers to introduce edgy updates to classic styles using pearls in various shapes, from perfectly round gems to baroque and circled pearls.
The CORE Pavilion, now in its third year, is where one will find the highest concentration of Hong Kong’s established jewellery manufacturers. These companies have expanded their international reach in partnership with the Jewellery & Gem Fairs in Hong Kong, and have been actively promoting the city’s standing as a frontrunner in the field of jewellery design, manufacturing and branding.
A B2B show designed for purposeful sourcing, the June Fair is anticipated to deliver an experiential opportunity to buyers searching for an extensive range of finished jewellery collections, from the latest in affordable jewellery styles to big-ticket items embellished with one-of-a-kind stones.
