The Hong Kong International Jewellery Show will take place March 5-8. Approximately 900 exhibitors are expected.

A number of group pavilions will be returning, including those from Israel, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, and the United States. In addition, the International Colored Gemstone Association will have its own pavilion.

The show again will feature the Designer Jewellery Galleria, which is expected to draw plenty of attention with its display of designer and branded jewelry from around the globe. About 20 exhibitors are expected to unveil their collections.

Another feature returning to the show is the Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition.
