UBM India Kolkata Jewellery & Gem Fair attracts 6000 buyers

KOLKATA: UBM India has concluded the Kolkata Jewellery & Gem Fair 2014 (KJGF’14), catering to over 160 leading exhibitors and over 6000 buyers. The KJGF’14, a three day B2B jewellery mega trade fair, held from 11th January to 13th January, 2014 at the Milan Mela Exhibition Complex, Kolkata was the first ever initiative of its kind in the city and state.

A unique feature of the launch edition of the KJGF’14 was the ‘The Golden Hand Award’, sponsored by MP Jewllers. This unique initiative honoured the unspoken heroes of the jewellery trade – the traditional ‘kaarigars’ who painstakingly create beautiful pieces through their craftsmanship.

The fair was represented by jewellery manufacturers from all over India as well as international participants, showcasing intricate modern and traditional jewellery designs  through plain & studded gold jewellery, loose diamonds and stones, gifting articles and machinery equipments.  One of the attractions for the local jewellers will be the dedicated machinery pavilion promoting technical knowhow in modern jewellery manufacturing.
