We are honoured to host this world-class event in collaboration with the GJEPC where industry participants will no doubt enjoy access to some of the most rare and exclusive pieces available in the market today. The GGJF also brings to Dubai a new “wholesale” jewellery market and buyers from over 25 different countries to the Emirate. Dubai has a strong track record in hosting these types of events due to its business friendly and innovative spirit clearly demonstrated by the recent World Expo 2020 bid win.”

With India being the world’s leading diamond cutting and polishing centre and fast emerging Jewellery hub, it is only natural that the first international initiative hosted by the Council is in Dubai.

Dubai is the single largest destination of Indian gem and jewellery products.
