jewellery products to prospective buyers and showcased beautiful pieces from around the world. Whilst, the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show held March 3 to 7 at the AsiaWorld – Expo presented a specialised trade platform for diamonds, loose gemstones and pearls. The growing popularity of jewellery shows in Hong Kong led to the introduction of a new scheme for the event, “two shows, two venues.” The presenters of the event, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), believe that this scheme will provide a platform towards further expansion for the growing number of exhibitors and buyers wanting to participate in the event. The show featured exhibitions such as the Hall of Extraordinary, the Hall of Fame the brand new T-Gold International Hall and the Hall of Fine Diamond. The seemingly endless halls jewellery and gems weren’t all the show had to offer! The two shows also hosted a range of different seminars and events. The “TREND FORECAST for Season 2015+: Consumer Attitudes, Focus on Jewellery and Diamond Products” presented by TRENDVISION Jewellery and Forecasting Creative Director, Paola De Luca, was the true highlight of the week. All in all the two shows allowed attendees interesting insight into the world of jewellery and provided a better understanding of market trends to exhibitors and buyers.
