HKIJS, HKIDGPS shows return in 'two shows, two venues' mode


The 40th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and 10th Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will return to the two fairs, two venues format for the first time since the pandemic, presenting the world’s premier jewellery trade platform. Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show will run at AsiaWorld-Expo from 27 February to 2 March, while the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 29 February to 4 March, bringing sourcing and global trade opportunities for industry players.


Sophia Chong, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC, said: “The theme of this year’s jewellery shows is Be Part of the Splendid Legacy, and the events are expected to attract over 4,000 exhibitors from more than 40 countries and regions. The overall scale of the fairs is close to pre-pandemic levels, with more than 60% of exhibitors coming from outside Hong Kong, accentuating Hong Kong’s status as an international trade and jewellery sourcing centre. The shows attract over 90 buyer missions from 65 countries and regions.”


Supported by jewellery trade associations and organisations from all over the world, the fairs feature 36 geographic and industry pavilions from Belgium, Brazil, Mainland China, Colombia, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Türkiye while Malaysia debuts. Industry pavilions returning include the Tanzanite Foundation, Asia Pacific Creators Association and International Coloured Gems Association, while the T-GOLD+METS Pavilion (co-organised by Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers' Association and Italian Exhibition Group) will debut to focus on jewellery manufacturing machinery.


The Hong Kong International Jewellery Show contains 18 zones, including the Hall of Extraordinary, which features 78 global exhibitors showcasing stunning diamond, gemstone, jade and pearl jewellery. These include Hong Kong exhibitor Hatta New World Company Limited (Booth: CEC GH-D06) which will showcase a jewellery set that carries about 110 carats of Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline pieces (a necklace, a ring and a pair of earrings), worth over HK$15 million. The bright-blue Paraiba is one of the rarest precious stones on Earth.


The Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show will bring together a wide range of diamonds, gemstones and pearl exhibitors in 11 zones, including three high-end product zones – Hall of Fine Diamond, Treasures of Nature and Treasures of Ocean – which will showcase top-quality white diamonds, coloured diamonds, high-end gemstones, rare pearls and other raw materials from all over the world, including Color Diamond Trading Co’s rare orange fancy colour diamond (Booth: AWE 5-G06) weighing 1.03 carats, believed to be highly sought-after by collectors and jewellery traders. Participating countries and regions 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 pavilion. The Japan Pavilion will continue to bring a wide range of quality pearls to the show.
