IIJS Once Again Shows The Power And Strength Of the Indian Gem And Jewelry Sector

Attending the 35th edition of the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) recently once again brought home a very clear fact: the extraordinary size, scale and strength of the Indian gem and jewelry industry.

No surprise there, of course. We all know the power of the Indian diamond, gemstone and jewelry trade. We are all familiar with the famous statistic that Indian polishes close to 90% of the world's diamonds, in volume terms. In value terms the figure is around 60-65%.
