First Texas-Israel Diamond Show in September

idi-logoRamat Gan: This fall strategic cooperation between the Texas Jewelers Association (TJA) and the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI) will produce the first Texas-Israel Diamond Show in San Antonio from September 29 – 30, 2014. This is the first time that jewelers in Texas and surrounding states will be offered the opportunity to buy diamonds directly from the source. The unique trunk show, which will bring dozens of leading diamond dealers from Israel, will be held in conjunction with the TJA Convention, September 27 – 30, 2014.

The Texas-Israel Diamond event will showcase close to 30 exhibitors from Israel, with diamond offerings in every size, shape, color and price point in loose diamonds and luxury diamond jewelry. The timing will enable jewelers to replenish stocks before the holiday season.

According to Eli Avidar, IDI Managing Director, this show is a win-win opportunity for both vendors and buyers. “In Israel’s diamond center, jewelers can find whatever diamonds they could possible look for – in every size, cut, quality and price. Now, for the first time, we are bringing these advantages directly to them,” he said.

Avidar added, “This is the first time that we are offering this exceptional opportunity to local jewelers in the United States. We’re holding the first Israel Diamond Show in Texas because we believe in the vibrancy of this market.”

The organizers are also planning social events and networking opportunities at the show, as well as special rates on accommodations. The show will be open to jewelers and other authorized members of the trade. Registration and valid trade credentials are necessary for admittance. To register, visit
