Visitor feedback has led premiere diamond trade show, CARAT+, to welcome leading coloured gemstone specialists for a debut Coloured Gemstones Sector at its second edition in May 2018.
This carefully curated new show feature will host world-renowned exhibitors, offering a vast array of loose coloured gemstones, gemstone sets, fantasy cuts, carvings and show-stopping stones for astute buyers, retailers and designer jewellers.
With exhibitor numbers tightly controlled to ensure impeccable quality, the Coloured Gemstones Sector will add an extra dimension to CARAT+ while maintaining its reputation as the only specialist diamond event in the iconic city of Antwerp.
Exhibitors already confirmed for the new CARAT+ Coloured Gemstones Sector include Germany-based and leading international gemstone expert, Paul Wild, and Antwerp-based gemstone dealer, Shapiro Gems.
Carat+ founder and director, Filip Van Laere, shares: “We are delighted to introduce the Coloured Gemstones Sector to the second edition of CARAT+. Feedback from visitors in 2017 revealed that a selection of leading coloured gemstone specialists would support buyers and retailers looking to fulfil specific customer requests, bespoke designs or new collection requirements.
“Now, more than ever, CARAT+ is the only trade-only buying platform to bring the best in diamonds, diamond jewellery and coloured gems to the iconic city of Antwerp.”
