As the younger generation is looking for new designs, I would urge all jewellers to continue to bring in distinctive and innovative designs and create a niche segment for pearls.”
Speaking at the inauguration of the 13th edition of HJF, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India said, “India is leading the number one position among the top exporters in cut & polished diamonds and second position in gold jewellery, silver jewellery and lab grown diamonds. The second quarter of 2021 has been satisfactory for businesses as establishments were better prepared for lockdowns compared with 2020. Total jewellery demand in terms of volume increased by 25% YoY to 55 tonnes in the second quarter of 2021. The recent move by the Indian Government making hallmarking mandatory for Gold Jewellery and Artefacts, we believe, this is an important step for a country like India where gold is purchased from organised as well as unorganised players. It will standardize the purity of gold jewellery and lead to a more structured sector, creating a fair ecosystem for smaller jewellers and the community at large. HJF 13th edition is representing world class manufactures & Wholesalers who are showcasing the latest trends in this glittering sector. We are excited with our restart 2.0 to bring back HJF in its 13th edition in the city of pearls in the in-person format again strictly following all the safety norms. Over the last 13 years, HJF has been a gateway to the Indian jewellery market, with a special focus on south India’s repertoire, and an excellent platform for generating business opportunities.”
