GemGenève Sees Robust Market For Top Tier Jewellery & Gems

Solitaire International –
Dealers attending Geneva show GemGenève (11th-14th May) reported strong demand for jewellery, gemstones, and diamonds, with top quality gemstones increasingly difficult to source.
GemGenève, usually staged twice a year in May and November coinciding with the Sotheby’s and Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auctions, gathers many leading industry figures from around the world and has become a staple of the trade fair calendar. It emerged as a leading gem showcase after the demise of Baselworld several years ago.
Retailers from top maisons and high-end collectors of jewellery and gemstones, seek outstanding items at GemGenève, which also features an array of high level, market-focused panel discussions led by well-known industry figures.
The overall mood at this edition was buoyant: Raj Mehta, director of one of the world’s largest diamond manufacturers, Rosy Blue, whose stand was buzzing throughout the show, spoke of strong orders and enquiries.
