The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council held the 30th edition of the India International Jewellery Show, featuring more than 860 companies from India and overseas, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre earlier this month in Mumbai.

Attendees included guest of honor Shri Prithviraj Chavan, chief minister of Maharashtra; Tlali Khasu, head of Lesotho’s Ministry of Mining; and GJEPC chairman Vipul Shah and vice chairman Pankaj Parekh.
“It is my pleasure to inaugurate Asia’s second-largest gem and jewelry show in Mumbai,” Chavan said at the event. “My government has always endeavored to promote the gem and jewelry sector in diamond cutting, innovation, and design. Mumbai offers world-class infrastructure facilities, which is key to growth and development in any industry.”
The five-day show attracted 30,000 visitors and delegations from across India; among the international delegations were those from Australia, Bangladesh, China, Dubai, Hungary, Iran, Nepal, Russia, UK, and Thailand.
