Israel’s diamond and jewelry industries to take center stage at international exhibition.
Tel Aviv will sparkle and shimmer for two days in July as 250 exhibitors from Israel and around the world display gold, silver and diamonds at Jovella, Israel’s international jewelry and diamond exhibition. The July 2-3, 2013 event will feature loose diamonds, gold jewelry, gold set with diamonds or precious stones, silver jewelry, silver combined with gold and gemstones as well as fashion jewelry. As in previous years, the trade show will feature a special section of young Israeli designers showing original gold, silver and diamond jewelry. In 2012, Jovella attracted over 12,000 trade visitors, including buyers, retailers, journalists and guests from abroad. “This year, our 10th anniversary, we expect a record participation of buyers from abroad. Israeli jewelry has a lot of offer, especially with consumers’ heightened interest in silver and fashion jewelry. As Israeli jewelry designers have made important inroads into international markets, we believe that buyers will flock to Tel Aviv this year to seek the next Big Thing,” said organizer Israela Stier. Israel’s top export market is the US, followed by Russia, the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Belgium, Italy, Spain, France and Japan.
