China's gold jewellery sales soar in early 2009

25 march 2009

So far this year, Chinese consumers have strong buying incentives for gold jewellery, thanks to the upbeat mood prevailing in the market for the Lunar New Year.

Elong Jewellery (Group) Co Ltd in Beijing is among the companies that registered robust sales growth during the festive period. “The festive purchasing mood was reflected in our bullish retail sales in late January, during the Chinese New Year,” Jianbo Zhen, deputy chairman of the board and general manager of the company which has about 30 specialty stores in China, told JNA.

The company is not alone in reporting increased demand for gold jewellery. Results of a recent survey by the Department of Commerce, China revealed that gold sales at major gold jewellery retailers rose by 17.2 percent during the Chinese New Year, which is known as the “golden week” for genuine consumption.

With 2009 being the Year of the Ox, jewellery with this animal sign was hot, the study showed.
