A gathering of eminent personalities from Jaipur’s the gem and jewellery industry and the city’s top jewellers, was seen at the recent 2,400 sq ft office inauguration of the Jaipur Jewellery Show at GoldSouk. Performing the ‘ribbon cutting’ ceremony was Bollywood actress Sonal Chauhan who also is the Brand Ambassador of JJS. JJS Spokesperson Mr. Ajay Kala explained that JJS has grown into one of the most prominent jewellery events in the country, being the second largest B2B + B2C jewellery exposition hosting over 25,000 unique visitors last December. The platform hosts gem & jewellery manufacturers, retailers and wholesellers, and talented jewellery designers under one roof. The 9th edition of JJS which begins 23rd December, 2011 promises to be more exciting and glamorous than ever.
“Moving the JJS office to GoldSouk was not just natural, but much awaited” said JJS Secretary, Rajiv Jain, “since GoldSouk is fast turning into the new gem and jewellery hub of Jaipur. As the show has grown rapidly over the last few years, the organizing committee saw the need to move to a large, modern facility closer to the heart of the jewellery industry.”
What began as an ambitious project initiated by visionary jeweller Rashmikant Durlabhji to empower Jaipur’s jewellery market, now has a life of its own, says JJS Co-convenor, Mr Dinesh Khatoria. He announced that JJS will be bigger and more professional this time, and expressed hope that some more exhibitors from the 100 odd applications still in the waiting list would be accommodated.
