Apart from being a perfect platform to ink deals and forge partnerships, the WJMES showcases products of jewellery, gemstones, pearls, and watches inspired by contemporary trends, traditions, and different cultures around the world with the possibility of direct purchase.
For the first time, the Emirati Jewellers Group will present a number of introductory workshops on the art and craft of making jewellery, including the art of electrochemical etching on metals, the art of sawing metal and inlaying stones, and methods of drawing and colouring gemstones.
The show will conclude on the 9th of October.
