Held under the patronage of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the event will continue until Saturday.
“In 2018, gold had lost some of its luster due to market headwinds. But that is changing now. 2019 has taken off well for the gold and diamond jewellery industry in the region, and with the precious metal forecast to regain its shine in the next few months, the Watch&Jewellery Middle East Show is set to trigger an upswing for the jewellery industry. The industry has high hopes on the show, and I am sure the Watch &Jewellery Middle East Show will once again deliver big”, said Abdullah bin Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, SCCI, and Expo Centre Sharjah, after the opening ceremony.
For its 46th edition, the show is featuring more than 500 master jewelers from more than 20 countries at 30.000sq m of premium exhibition area, showcasing latest trends in gold and diamond jewellery from across the world. Exhibitors from Canada are participating for the first time in the show. !�O_��
