Sharjah, April 20, 2014
Nearly 450 jewellers from more than 20 countries will be displaying gold and diamond jewellery, precious stones, pearl sets, gemstones and branded watches at the upcoming MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show in Sharjah.
The 36th edition of the event is set to get under way at Expo Centre Sharjah over 20,000 sq m of exhibition space from April 29 to May 3.
“When it comes to finest gold and diamond jewellery, you can be assured that there is no parallel for the MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show in the region. The past 35 successful editions of the show are a testimony to this fact. This time, once again, we are featuring one of the largest jewellery showcases in the region that will present jewellery works from across the world,” said Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah.
“Expectations are always high with MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show. As we have regular buyers from royal families, high-income groups and those who settle for nothing but the best, this time too we are bringing together leading jewellery makers from countries that are known for superior jewellery manufacturing and well-known designers and master jewellers,” added Midfa.
Visitors can also find a wide range of signature creations, traditional, rare and ethnic works famed for their craftsmanship from several countries.
“Jewellery lovers as well as traders can expect the arrival of brand new creations from leading design houses that could well set the trends for the rest of the year and next,” said Mohamed Amjed, assistant group project manager of the MidEast Watch & Jewellery Show.
“Knowing well the affinity of the region for all things gold and diamond, the diversity of the customer base and their varied tastes and styles, exhibitors will have one of the most extensive ranges of jewellery items on display.”
Most jewellers are likely to focus on customising the pieces to their clients’ needs, and encourage customers to select materials, colours and embellishments based on individual tastes.
