Premium quality precious stones, exceptional designs and unique pieces will be featured at FACETS Gem and Jewellery Fair when the 25th anniversary edition opens from 3rd to 6th in September this year.

Organizers expect a footfall of 10,000, which will be the largest the fair has witnessed its 25 years.

“Visiting FACETS is looked at by buyers as a profitable step to grow their business. The show is compact enough to fully explore sourcing opportunities and with a large number of new participants, it is the ideal platform to network with contacts,” said Chairman of FACETS Sri Lanka Juzar Adamaly.

He added that ever growing number of participants from manufacturers, retailers, designers, artisans; wholesalers to buyers accompanied with the value added trade show have created a unique business marketplace.

“The increasing number of exhibitors in one of the fastest growing markets in regions makes for a jewelers dream and a buyers paradise,” said Secretary of SLGJA Ziqufi Ismail. “There is no finer place to buy gemstones and fine Jewellery than here, from the source.”

FACETS Sri Lanka continues to attract key players from the Gem and Jewelry industry. Extensive promotions as in the past were carried out in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tucson, China and Dubai in order to attract exclusive and high-profile buyers, whose interest is in the purchase of precious and semi-precious stones.

All 150 booths at FACETS were sold out two months before the commencement of the fair. “That is a testament to the fact that there is a huge demand at FACETS, for both manufactures to showcase their precious stones and for buyers to seal a deal.” He added.

All booths and venue branding will take on a whole new importance at this year’s event which will add luster.
