Hong Kong Jewelry Show: The World’s Largest Assemblage of Cultured Pearls
September 6, 2013
Nowhere is that more evident than at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair, held in mid-September each year. The show takes place in two venues, the Asia World Expo near the airport and the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre in the heart of the city, and thousands will flock to there to buy and sell once again Sept. 11–17, 2013.
Nearly 1,000 pearl wholesalers assemble in a dedicated PearlPavilion at the Asia World Expo , which is the largest accumulation of cultured pearls in any single place. Top brands also show their finest merchandise at the Hong Kong Premier Pavilion in the convention center. Many of the major saltwater pearl producers, including Paspaley Pearling Company and Robert Wan, auction their new goods in conjunction with the show.
