JCK Las Vegas will witness India Pavilion organized by Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) for the 16th consecutive year. This year, 40 gem and jewellery exporters participating at the “India Pavilion” will be showcasing a wide variety of trendy, unique and innovative jewellery made especially for the US market.

Mr. Pramod Agrawal, Chairman, GJEPC said, “USA is a significant market for the Indian gem and jewellery industry. India exported US$ 10.58 billion worth of Gem & Jewellery products to the US in 2018. The rising GDP growth, employment rate and private consumption expenditure in the US have contributed to the rise in India’s exports of gems and jewellery to the market. It is believed that this momentum of US demand will continue further, and this is a good sign for Indian gems and jewellery exports. USA alone is expected to shell out $5.2 billion on the jewellery category this year, a whopping 31% increase over last year, as reported in its annual survey by NRF (National Retail Federation), with Mother’s Day estimated to see record spends and the good news is that India caters to over 19% of the US market’s jewellery demand.”

This year, the India Pavilion at JCK has some special attractions. It will feature an exclusive India Design Gallery, showcasing some of the most magnificent jewelry pieces created for the U.S market. The theme is COSMOS, a representation of U.S. consumer trends in 2020. The jewelry features a variety of cosmic elements in intricately crafted rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and more.

“The India Design Gallery highlights some of the finest contemporary jewelry available from India today. The jewelry, designed and manufactured in different parts of India, has one thing in common— it is timeless jewelry for the world. Indian jewellers and craftsmen cater to the most demanding customers across the globe. India’s ability to satiate any kind of jewellery requirements has always amazed the world. This has been possible due to Industry’s willingness to embrace and adopt the latest technology,” Says Colin Shah, Vice Chairman, GJEPC

The Jewellery at India Design Gallery at JCK have been designed by the Designers of Artisan Awards , a Design led initiative by GJEPC.
