CIBJO President Urges Chinese Industry to Become Force in Jewelry Design



CIBJO
president Gaetano Cavalieri has urged the leadership of the Chinese jewelry
industry to assume a more prominent role in the market, by becoming a force in
jewelry design, as well as being a major manufacturing center and consumer
market.

Cavalieri was speaking in Shenzhen on May 15 at the inauguration of a new trade
association, “China Jewellery Culture and Creation Industry.”

“China
has firmly established itself as a major consumer market and manufacturing
centre. It now is time is assert itself as a force in jewelry design, and put
its stamp on the industry, much in the same way that my colleagues in Italy
have done for so long. I am confident that the new association will play a role
in the injection of Chinese design and artistic perception into the
international jewelry arena,” Dr. Cavalieri stated.
