Jovella 2014 Set for July

29 may 2014

The 11th edition of Jovella, Israel’s international jewelry and diamond exhibition, will host a very significant international exhibitor, Fiera di Vicenza, Italy’s primary company for jewelry trade shows and events. Jovella 2014 will be held on the first two days of July at Tel Aviv’s Trade Fairs and Convention Center, according to press release by IDI. Jovella, the leading event of the jewelry industry in Israel, offers both domestic and foreign buyers an opportunity to explore Israel’s diamond and jewelry industries, to meet some of the most innovative designers and manufacturers in the country and to visit the Israel Diamond Exchange.
Israel’s jewelry is known for fresh designs and a dynamic spirit, based on a fusion of modern and traditional, east and west, conventional and futuristic. Jovella will showcase jewelry that features creative designs, up-to-the-minute fashion, excellent quality and a combination of the exotic and the cosmopolitan.
The show will include approximately 250 exhibitors from Israel and abroad, showing loose diamonds, gold jewelry, gold set with diamonds or precious stones, silver jewelry, silver combined with gold and gemstones, as well as fashion jewelry. As in previous years the show will feature a special section of young Israeli jewelry designers showing original gold, silver and diamond jewelry.
In 2013, Jovella attracted over 10,000 trade visitors, including buyers, retailers, journalists and distinguished guests from abroad. The U.S. is the Israeli jewelry industry’s largest export market, followed by Europe and the Far East. Besides the U.S., Israel’s jewelry is exported to Russia, the U.K., Hong Kong, Canada, Belgium, Italy, Spain, France, Japan and other locations.
The exhibition is being organized by the Stier Group, in collaboration with the Israel Jewelry Manufacturers’ Association (IJMA), the Israel Ministry of Economy, the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute, and the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies (IDI).
