Return of the Sands at the Vegas!
One of the world’s largest jewellery events welcomes the trade with arms wide open, this time at their old haunt at the Venetian in Las Vegas. After hosting the show for eight years in Mandala Bay, JCK returns to Sands Expo and has sent the veteran visitors of the show into a tizzy of nostalgia and familiarity. The fact that it is located in the middle of the strip only makes it more convenient for show-goers to navigate to different places.

Every corner of the surrounding exudes luxury and that is no surprise - $35 million has gone into giving a complete makeover to the old venue. The 20th edition of Luxury that began early was a powerhouse of brands putting their best foot forward – from ring crafted in a rare, unheard of minty green gem called grandidierite to melo pearls and Shakiso emerald from Ethiopia, Luxury was a veritable treasure trove of jewels as always.

The show has also been educating the industry in so many ways and this year RJC’s discussion on building trust through responsible business practices was riveting as were the seminars hosted by GIA.

There is so much happening at JCK every year – by the time you enter the show, take in everything that’s happening around you and head towards what you want, the show is already over. Pace it out, grab a drink and more importantly, stop by and say hello to our friends at the India Pavilion!
