GJEPC launches India Rough Gemstone Sourcing Show 2021 in Jaipur
The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council has inaugurated the India Rough Gemstones Sourcing Show 2021 in Jaipur to give gemstone manufacturers direct access to rough stones in India.
On March 13, the GJEPC launched its trade show focusing on rough gemstones from mines in Zambia and Mozambique, the organisation announced on its website. The trade show will run until April 19 and aims to give gem and jewellery manufacturers a chance to source stones originating from other countries from within India, as pandemic-led travel restrictions continue.
“Jaipur is the global hub for cutting and polishing of coloured gemstones,” said GJEPC chairman Colin Shah.
“It processes more than 300 different varieties of precious and semi-precious gemstones which includes emerald, tanzanite, morganite, and many other gemstones. However, being an import-oriented industry, availability of good quality rough gemstones is a prerequisite for the sector. By organising India Rough Gemstones Sourcing Show, GJEPC is making sure that the export activities resume in full throttle as manufacturing activities are back to normal and there is ease in Covid crisis.”
The trade show is taking place with strict health and safety guidelines in place, according to the GJEPC. Only 20 guests are permitted to enter the event hall at a time to ensure social distancing.
