Indian goods receive 'below average' response at JCK show

As compared to last year exhibitors at the JCK Las Vegas trade show 2007 were less.
Those exhibitors with low end jewellery, set with mainly small, inexpensive diamonds, the so-called ‘Indian goods’ reported an extremely poor show this year.

Still, those with high-end and designer jewellery reported a satisfactory-to-good show when polled on the penultimate day.

Given the poor performance of the US economy, most industry insiders expect the situation to remain unchanged for a couple of years more. Meanwhile, in order to sell low end jewellery, manufacturers will have to come up with some completely new value propositions in order to increase consumer demand.
