As the industry moves ever closer to JCK Las Vegas, buzz is building around the show’s new offerings. Among them this year are two new exhibitor neighbourhoods: one focusing on estate jewellery and the other on lab-grown diamonds.
Arranged by Palm Beach Show Group, the Las Vegas Estate Jewelry & Watch Pavilion will feature a number of contemporary items as well as antique and estate jewellery and pre-owned watches. Palm Beach’s CEO, Scott Diament, says it was created as an answer to “high dealer demand.”
“Antique and estate jewellery and watch dealers want the tremendous buying traffic JCK Las Vegas offers,” he said.
The other new pavilion, simply called Lab-grown Diamonds, exclusively hosts exhibitors offering synthetic diamonds. It currently features about 31 companies hailing from Ontario, China, India, Belgium, Russia, and the United States.
