IIJS Signature is now seen an integral part of Indian jeweller’s business cycle. Participants at each stage of the supply chain – from raw material suppliers to manufacturers, designers, wholesalers and retailers – are growing and consolidating their business. This year, IIJS Signature has a Jewellery Startup Zone, which features the work of 16 handpicked women entrepreneurs and 16 budding jewellery designers to encourage talent and enterprise. Two coinciding events Design Inspirations and The Artisan Awards will elevate design consciousness.”

Mr. Agrawal announced that GJEPC is also coming up with a new show in Jaipur called India Gem & Jewellery show to be held from 1 to 3 April 2020, especially for the international buyers.

Talking about the industry concerns, Agrawal said that “We have been pursuing our govt. constantly with few concerns which requires immediate attention like reduction in Import Duty on Precious Metals Gold/Silver/Platinum from 12.5% to 4%; reduction of import duty on Cut and Polished Diamonds and Gemstones from 7.5% to 2.5%; Amendment in Taxation Laws enabling sale of rough diamonds in SNZ, Mumbai. This is very important to give a level playing field to our traders in global market.”

IIJS Signature provides a perfect platform for the country’s leading manufacturers and retailers to facilitate an exchange of market insights and knowledge, providing networking opportunities for business.

Concurrently, the visitors will get to witness IGJME, Asia’s largest gem & jewellery technology fair.

The revolutionary technology exhibited at the show is expected to drastically improve the quality of the products while minimizing the raw material wastage at the same time. IGJME will provide an opportunity to interact with leading suppliers of machinery, tools, components, packaging accessories and allied products from all over the globe, who will showcase cutting edge technology, such as laser machines, computerized yield planning machines, advanced bruiting lathes, diamond impregnated scaife, etc.

Technology today plays a major role in every aspect of jewellery making. The use of the latest equipment and technology will be a crucial component of India’s vision of becoming the leading jewellery hub in the world.
