JJS - Convenor's Message

GET SET FOR THE COMPLETE SHOW OF GLIMMER & GLAMOUR

And so time comes for yet another edition of the Jaipur Jewellery Show (JJS). It is surely heartening that increasingly more buyers, visitors as well as the connoisseurs of the jewellery are looking forward to this annual event of glimmer and glamour.

In this 14th edition the visitors are going to have a spectacular experience of seeing the latest and the finest collection of G&J products not only from Jaipur but also from exhibitors worldwide.

A very special feature of JJS is that one finds rough stones to finished jewellery – all under one roof. Small wonder then that this 'December Show' has fast become one of the most recognized gem & jewellery expositions in the country.

In the past few editions of the JJS, it has been observed that the event has carved a niche for itself in terms of witnessing new trends in manufacturing as well as the choices of the consumer. This is one show which is aptly calledthe ‘complete show’ and takes care inshowcasing the fast changes that take place inevery field.

I would like to place on record once again the unwavering support and cooperation that I have always received from my fellow committee members. My gratitude to them .

JJS - Tribute to Rashmibhai

RY Durlabhji, an iconic name in the Gems and jewellery sector, are the pioneers and leading exporter of coloured gemstones (especially emerald)That they have won innumerable awards and recognition for their accomplishments in the export arena is a fact well known. As is also the fact known that they are the pioneers in the manufacture of Sandwana emeralds on the scientific basis.

Rashmibhai (as he was popularly known) was the partner of RY Durlabhji.However, what stands out about this multi- faceted person is the thrust that he gave to the gem and jewellery sector. Consider this: when Durlabhji was the Chairman of the Gems & Jewellery Export Promotion Council of India (GJEPC), the exports in this sector Leapfrogged by a whopping extent. An incredible 17 percent of India’s export became that of the gems and jewellery sector. What is even more incredible is the fact that the proportion in terms of percentage has not changed even today. Under his proactive stewardship, a number of matters pertaining to the trade were sorted out and streamlined. Little wonder then that the GJEPC had specially created ‘Awardof Eminence’ in 2001. The citation of the award aptly said: in deep appreciation of his preeminent and invaluable contribution over three decades to the cause of Gems & Jewellery Exports and his exemplary role in the international arena in promoting this

industry worldwide.’ While Rashmibhai was making a headway in the national apex trade body; he was also the founding organizer of the New York-Based International Colored Gemstone association (ICGA). He was its Vice Prsident from 1984 to 1990-indeed a stellar honour for an Indian to represent India in this 38-country international organization. What was even more gratifying was that he has delvered the keynote address at the Biennial Congress of this prestigious organization no less than three times. A stickler for intricate detail, Rashmibhai had superb organizing skills. ICA Organized under the convenership of Durlabhji in January 2003 at Jaipur was a tremendous success.

More recently he was instrumental in launching the Jaipur Jewellery Show (JJS) The first show was held in December 2003 and within a span of four years the event has attained international status. An able organizer that he was, his pioneering efforts that this extravaganza has placed Jaipur on the world jewellery map. His involvement can be gauged from the fact that he would personally approve every little thing that went into the making of this mega-event, be it the-matter for the administration of the exposition site or for that matter, the creative aspect of the fasion show. It goes entirely to his credit that under his convenership, the event is now the biggest in north India; and second largest in the country. It is a matter of immense satisfaction that other states are now emulating JJS to organize similar shows there.
