Singapore: The Singapore International Jewellery Expo (SIJE) 2017 will be held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, on 6 – 9 July 2017. Featuring more than 200 exhibitors from 25 countries, the expo will showcase exquisite jewellery from manufacturers and designers from all over the world.
The abundance of natural gems and resources in Asian countries, coupled with the 5% increase in the number of high net worth individuals in Singapore to 105,100 in 2016, provides an unparalleled opportunity for tapping into Asia’s fast developing jewellery market. SIJE 2016 will continue to be the affluent hub to showcase fine collections of luxury gem pieces to the well-heeled in Singapore as well as traders and high net worth buyers from China and India; the two most competitive markets in Asia.
Buyers will have an opportunity to gain insider’s advice at the Expo regarding the market for these precious gems. International experts are on the scene as SIJE 2017 has a special focus on gemstone investment, owing to increased demand and rapid decrease in supply. There is a shortage of supply of the rarest and best quality gems in the market. Gems like rubies, sapphires, and emeralds are taking center stage again, while newer gems like spinels, tsavorites, tanzanites, and other varieties of tourmalines are fast gaining popularity.
SIJE is also celebrating women in honor of their faithful attendance every year. Consequently, the Expo has partnered with communities and organizations helping women, such as Soul Rich Woman – a collaboration of like-minded and forward-thinking women raising the importance of health and happy lifestyles.
