“It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is finally over. The year 2023 marks the return of global in-person events in Hong Kong, and we couldn’t be more excited to deliver JGA – the biggest mid-year jewellery show in Asia,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. “Despite the challenges of the last three years, our community’s passion for our industry has never waned. This event is our chance to reconnect with that passion and with each other. Join us next month as we come together to celebrate our industry and all that makes it special.”
The fair will feature the highly anticipated return of its iconic pavilions: the Fine Design and Fine Gem Pavilions (FDP/FGP), CORE and product category-specific sections that have long been among the show’s most popular mainstays.
“The Fine Design and Fine Gem Pavilions embody true luxury. Nearly every exhibit in these pavilions is rare, precious and masterfully crafted,” said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery.
“Further adding glitter and colour to JGA are our anchor pavilions including CORE, which celebrates Hong Kong’s strengths in jewellery craftsmanship and design; our Fine Jewellery, Diamond, Coloured Gemstone and Pearl zones, and trade association-led and product category-specific sections that professional buyers cannot get enough of. With so much to discover and experience, JGA is poised to be a standout event in the industry this year.”
Additionally, a programme of seminars and panel discussions will take place in Hall 1C of the show, including sessions on “Looking Ahead: What’s Next For The Jewellery Industry” and “The Future Of Jewellery: Next Generation Of Industry Leaders” on 22 and 23 June, respectively. Confirmed speakers include Lawrence Ma, founding President and Chairman of the Diamond Federation of Hong Kong, China (DFHK); Noy Elram, Managing Director of Sarine Asia Pacific; Victor Yiu, Director of ZURI Jewellery, and Devansh Shah, Partner at Venus Jewel. Additional panellists will be confirmed soon.

Of JGA’s many unique attractions, FDP and FGP perhaps most eloquently embody the endless possibilities of precious raw materials and what they can become – works of wearable art, timeless mementoes and treasures that can be passed on from generation to generation.
