The 4th edition of the Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fairwill present a varied collection of fine finished jewellery and loose gemstones when it opens its doors at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre on November 4.

Hosting more than 100 exhibitors from 28 countries, the Singapore Fair is considered an ideal business platform for regional and international jewellery and gemstone traders, according to organiser UBM Asia.

In partnership with MasterCard, visitors to the SJGF 2016 stand to receive an additional 10 percent discount on purchases made from participating exhibitors at the fair, the organiser announced.

The four-day trade fair will likewise feature a series of events, workshops and seminars. Industry expert Tanja M. Sadow is set to give a workshop on “Assessing Diamond Cut” while trade seminars such as “Revolutionary Systems and Tools for the Small Business Owner: Marketing, Operations and more;” and “The New Market: Marketing Gemstones & Jewellery to Millennials,” among others, will also be held.

The trade show will also play host to the Singapore Jewellery Design Award, which is scheduled to take place on November 4. This year’s theme is Metamorphosis, featuring creative yet commercially attractive original pieces. The awarding ceremony will be followed by an Exclusive Fashion Show.
