Major suppliers of pearl jewellery collections will come together to show off their best wares at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair in June.

Bosses at the show, which will be held from June 20 to 23 at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, say that designs using baroque, circled and potato pearls will all take centre stage in a few months’ time when suppliers take to their stands.

“Professional buyers at the June Fair will be delighted with what our exhibiting partners have in store for them,” says Celine Lau, director for Jewellery Fairs at UBM Asia, “from cascading pearl necklaces made of exotic Tahitian pearls with peacock overtones to bracelet cuffs set with golden and white South Sea pearls, coloured gemstones and diamonds.


“At the same time, we have jewellers and designers who are finding new and unexpected ways of showing off the beauty of pearls, especially baroque and irregularly shaped gems.”

Sharing her market observations, Ida Wong, general manager of the Tahitian Pearl Association Hong Kong (TPAHK), notes that styles featuring simple pearl jewellery designs with multifunctional elements possess significant mass appeal.

The June Fair will feature some of the most recognised names in the loose pearl and finished pearl jewellery sector, including major suppliers from mainland China, Europe, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Japan and the US.

The June Fair will feature around 2,000 exhibitors from 38 countries and regions and from a broad cross-section of the industry.

It is divided into well-defined theme and group pavilions, spread across 70,000 square metres of exhibition space at the HKCEC.
