With the ready availability of raw material, cost-effective labour and skills passed through generations, India is the preferred source for gems and jewellery products by buyers from the world over. With a five million strong workforce employed across the sector, the gems and jewellery industry contributes 7% to the country's GDP. The Campaign features India as the one-stop destination to source world-class gems and jewellery.”
