Anticipation builds for Asia’s biggest mid-year fine jewellery sourcing event

Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong gains traction with extensive resource offerings and curated collections

Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) continues to gain momentum, with major fine jewellery manufacturers and gemstone suppliers confirming their participation in the industry’s biggest mid-year B2B sourcing event in Asia, show organiser Informa Markets Jewellery announced today.

Exhibitor bookings are building up and trade buyer inquiries are streaming in as the global jewellery industry prepares to meet at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 20 to 23 June. JGA is anticipated to host 1,700+ exhibitors from 30+ countries and regions, occupying 30+ pavilions under the group, product and themed categories. The latter comprises two distinct sections: the CORE Pavilion, which showcases leading jewellers from Hong Kong, and the Fine Design/Fine Gem Pavilion.

Online registration is now open for trade buyers.

“In an ever-changing business landscape, our community stays nimble, consistently adjusting to challenges and embracing opportunities for growth,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. “That’s precisely why it’s important to have a physical presence in live events like JGA. Nothing compares to being right where the action is. The timing, scale and calibre of attendees at the fair are too valuable to overlook.”

New Releases

JGA will present a comprehensive collection of finished jewellery and loose precious materials, including diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls. The exhibition also has dedicated sections for jewellery-related equipment, packaging products and technology solutions.

“JGA is the place where industry professionals can make new business connections and explore valuable market resources. I strongly advise the buying community to plan ahead for JGA, since this will enhance their chances of having a successful visit,” said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery.

Reinforcing this point is the wide variety of exciting products that is making its way to JGA this June. Here are some of the collections that buyers cannot miss:



Established in India in 1994, Kapu Gems Limited is one of the leading manufacturers of large-sized fine diamonds. Its operation revolves around the manufacturing of loose stones in various grades, which are sourced in accordance with the provisions of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme for rough diamonds, according to the company. At JGA, Kapu Gems is unveiling fancy-shaped goods and round brilliants.


Passion Art Jewelry (HK) Ltd’s distinct approach to fine diamond jewellery design is likely to leave a lasting impression on buyers. Some of its new collections include the “Mariposa” (butterfly) diamond necklace featuring petals set with diamonds and in plain gold with a shiny finish, a statement floral-inspired ring with round and fancy-shaped diamonds, and a pair of diamond stud earrings in a classic square shape and embellished with baguette diamonds and surrounded by a halo of round stones.

Coloured Gemstones


A showcase of coloured gemstone finds, including layouts and contemporary jewellery collections, also awaits buyers at JGA. Among these exhibits are Claudia Hamann Edelstein GmbH’s Colombian emeralds, Burmese rubies, sapphires from Thailand and Sri Lanka, and fine gemstones from Africa. Founded in 1990 in Hamburg, Germany, Claudia Hamann Edelstein is tapping into its significant stock of high-quality gemstones to offer customers various options in terms of colour, size and shape, and multiple selections of pairs, sets and calibrated series. Additionally, the company is known for its innovative Double Rose Cut, which has become one of the beloved gemstone cuts worldwide.


Additionally, JGA is highlighting finished jewellery collections that feature rare coloured gemstones. Among them is Goko Shokai Co Ltd’s ring collection. One of the pieces boasts a 3.16-carat “No Heat” Pigeon’s Blood Mozambique ruby as the centre gem, encircled by diamonds. Another has a 4.69-carat Muzo “Mariposa” emerald with diamond shoulders. Last but not least is a 12.21-carat “No Heat” “Cornflower” blue Sri Lankan sapphire ring, surrounded by diamonds. All three centre stones come with a GRS report.



Pearls are among the top exhibits at JGA, and Uto Shinju Co Ltd offers a wide selection to cater to diverse preferences. Established in 1968, the Tokyo-based company specialises in Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian pearl jewellery. Among its latest designs are the “Utopia” necklace in 18-karat gold, featuring a combination of Akoya and South Sea pearls. This piece offers three different styling options: It can be worn either as a 40cm or 60cm strand individually or combined to create a longer necklace. Additionally, buyers will delight in the bubble-inspired “Mizumari” necklaces in 18-karat gold, adorned with Akoya and South Sea pearls, and the “Carillon” necklaces in 18-karat gold, featuring South Sea and Tahitian pearls and complemented by gold spacers that accentuate the hues and lustre of the gems.


Buyers seeking loose pearls will likewise find a variety of options at Asia Pearl Japan Ltd, which is presenting a range of loose Tahitian and white and golden South Sea pearls. Established in Kobe in 1956, this family-owned business has decades of accumulated pearl knowledge and expertise. Asia Pearl’s focus on quality is reflected in its refined selection.

Fine Jewellery


Showcasing some of the very best in Hong Kong’s jewellery and gemstone industry is the CORE Pavilion. Emphasising craftsmanship and innovative designs, one exhibitor, EJI, is launching exciting collections led by the two-way “Majestic Owl” pendant crafted from mother-of-pearl shells and diamonds; “Splendid Voyage” consisting of diamond arm cuffs, brooches and necklaces featuring wave, sail, anchor and boat motifs, and the “Tri-llusion” diamond pyramid collar necklace in half-pavé setting, which offers intriguing views of the three-dimensional triangles when seen from different angles.


Trade buyers will also discover a range of contemporary fine jewellery from Christelle Limited. With its vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities and market experience gained over the course of three generations across the Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas, the company curates, designs and manufactures its collections, all while ensuring competitive pricing.


In addition to discovering diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls, buyers will also find essential jewellery components such as gold chains at JGA. Bico Ghi Corporation, a Japanese wholesale company specialising in precious metal jewellery, is launching 18-karat gold chain necklaces in various styles, including Kihei, Snake and Heart Bismarck. Alongside its chain selection are 24-karat and 18-karat gold coin pendants.
