Atlanta Jewelry Showcase Expands

Fire & Flash, the new International Jewelry Showcase at AmericasMart Atlanta, has been established as a biannual market that provides a buying opportunity for jewelry retailers, high-end apparel boutiques and upscale gift stores. The show, being held Oct. 13- 16, marks the one-year anniversary of Fire & Flash, created to meet a growing demand for a fine jewelry and high-end fashion accessories market.

The jewelry showcase will run in conjunction with the Atlanta Apparel market, providing more buying opportunities for exhibitors and new resources for retailers. It also expands to include additional products and an exclusive temporary booth section on the fifth floor, directly beneath the permanent fine jewelry showrooms on the sixth floor. Several industry leaders have secured space in the temporary area, including SYK Jewelry, Jim World Imports, Jewelry Land, and GND.

The temporary booths—together with more than 70 permanent showrooms spanning 90,000 square feet—offer gold, sliver, diamonds, precious stones, high-end fashion, costume jewelry and other designer pieces. Buyers will also benefit from one-stop shopping with suppliers, jewelry display companies, and repair shops also in Building 3.

Jewelry retailers will also have access to all apparel market offerings and events during the show—including the World of Coke offsite party and an educational wedding event, “An Engaging Affair,” showcasing contemporary trends in everything related to special and social occasion. Highlights consist of tabletop accessories, wedding, and engagement rings, floral designs, cake, and catering trends with insightful presentations by industry experts.
