One Day of the Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair to Go!

Exhibiting at the Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair 2017 has been a blast!

Apart from meeting many new faces, we had a few visits from familiar ones, and we got to give our signature talks (related to our workshops) over the 4 days.

Which means that there is only one more day and one more talk to go!

Thank you for coming to visit us at Booth G114 and we hope that you learned something useful from us as well as enjoyed the Gem Jar Juniors (and Classics).

We feel a little sad that the event is coming to an end but we will cherish the opportunity to rest tomorrow, which will give us a chance to update our site and social media properly.

In the meantime, we are about to go back to Event Halls A and B to meet more of you and to make an impact on the gemstone industry.

Q&A After Talk at SJGF2017
We are Exhibiting at the October Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair!

We will be exhibiting at the upcoming Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair from 27 - 30 October!

Not only that, we are partners with the organisers to provide Gem Jar Juniors as door gifts for all visitors to the SJGF!

Of course, we are still keeping some surprises for you at our booth - G114.

So, come any time from 11 am - 8 pm (5 pm on 30th Oct) and say 'Hi!' You'll be glad you did. :)

Being Part of the Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair 2017

We were recently approached by a representative from the organiser (UBM) for the Singapore Jewellery and Gem Fair. As a side note, UBM also organises the gem fair in Hong Kong.

The representative - let's give him a mysterious name - Mr. R, asked if we'd be interested in exhibiting at the upcoming fair in Singapore from 27 - 30 October. He also asked if we would like to present a speech or workshop at the fair.

It was quite an opportunity and we sought more information, which Mr. R very kindly provided.

Exhibiting at the show was not prohibitively expensive, especially for a Singapore-registered company, but it did have quite a cost. Mr. R agreed that partnering with another exhibitor and sharing the space could work.

To that end, we brought an offer to a gem dealer friend who may be interested in exhibiting in the upcoming fair. We aren't sure about the logistics on his part but we offered to help where we can.

We offered some topics that may interest the participants at the upcoming fair - along the lines of the curriculum and the book that we've written (though not yet published) - and Mr. R said that he'd get back to us once the team has confirmed the programme and theme of the show.

It looks like an interesting few months leading up to the fair and we look forward to being a part of it!

Today Marks the Beginning of the 59th Bangkok Gem and Jewelry Fair 2017

Ah, the biannual gem fairs at Bangkok.

One of the things I tell gem lovers that I meet in Singapore is to visit at least 1 Bangkok gem fair as soon as they get the opportunity.

It's not that prices there are particularly good, though some of them are, but the sheer volume and variety of gems from all over the world that makes the trip worthwhile.

My first trip there was eye-opening. I had no idea of the scale of the gem and jewellery industry in Thailand before that. After 3 full days there, I hadn't even finished visiting every booth at the fair.

The contacts I made there have been valuable and I have done business with some of the dealers since then. I'm glad to know that I can look them up if I need anything.

The 59th Bangkok Gem and Jewelry Fair is scheduled to run from 22 - 26 Feb at Impact Arena Muang Thong Thani. 

Truly, I wish I was there right now.
