A broad range of fine jewellery pieces is expected to dazzle thousands of buyers at the 5th edition of the Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair scheduled for November 3 to 6 in Taipei.
According to trade show organiser UBM Asia, the fair has recorded 32,508 visits since its inception and has been recognised as a must-attend international B2B jewellery exhibition in Taiwan. This year’s edition will be held at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition.
The trade show has also become an avenue for creative talents to further hone their craft. This year, Akachen Art will present a selection of art jewellery focusing on brand promotion, design and metalwork techniques. In addition, Glamour Fine Jewelery, well-known for its collection of precious gemstones, will showcase one-of-a-kind pieces to jewellery collectors, noted the organiser.
The GIA Alumni & Associates Taiwan Chapter is also displaying high-end jewellery collections from its members such as Jeweler, AIDA Diamond, VS Art Jewelry Design, Carato Fine Jewellery and Fancy House Gems.
“The group pavilion highlights GIA members’ unique commodities and supports new business opportunities in the jewellery industry. The value of fine jewellery displayed by GIA Taiwan not only shines bright in terms of jewellery production and metalwork; it is also valued at more than US$10 million,” noted the organiser.
Hung Ming-Li, president of the Taiwan Jewelry Industry Association, commented, “Many young designers have emerged as important figures in the industry after participating in overseas competitions. They continue to produce astonishing works. Our exhibition is meant to place Taiwan’s creative artworks in the limelight and attract more overseas exhibitors. Taiwan is expected to play a significant role in the global jewellery market in the near future.”
