Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition Winners Announced
Hong Kong, Feb 18, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - A new jewellery show joins one of Asia's most popular jewellery fairs in a move that has exhibitors and buyers alike responding with enthusiasm.
Next month, the inaugural HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show, 3-7 March, at AsiaWorld-Expo, will be held alongside the 31st edition of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, taking place 5-9 March, at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
More Space, More Exhibitors
Adding the new fair with the longstanding Jewellery Show requires a great deal more space and resources. More than 7,500 workers are involved in the construction of the two fairs. Together, they are expected to attract more than 3,800 exhibitors from 51 countries and regions. Last year, some 3,340 exhibitors took part in the Jewellery Show.
Diamonds, Gems and Pearls
The Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show will welcome 15 group pavilions; five trade organisation pavilions will also participate: the Antwerp World Diamond Centre, the International Colored Gemstone Association, the Israel Diamond Institute, the Japan Pearl Exporters' Association and the New York Diamond Dealers Club.
The new show will feature two product zones: the Hall of Fine Diamonds, showcasing carat-size diamonds, and Treasures of Nature, offering precious stones, South Sea pearls and Tahiti pearls.
Seminars on offer at the show will range from market developments in Southeast Asia and the Americas (3 March) to pearl trends (4 March), spotlights on rubies, as well as coloured gemstones (5 March) and diamond identification (6 March).
The Jewellery Show will welcome more than 2,300 exhibitors from 41 countries and regions, including 16 group pavilions, four of which are new to the fair: Indonesia, Peru, South Africa and the United Kingdom. In addition, four trade organisation pavilions will take part: the Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute, the Japan Jewellery Association, the Platinum Guild International, and T-Gold International.
Fame to Glamour
Fair highlights will include seven product zones: Hall of Fame, showcasing international brands; Hall of Extraordinary, presenting prestigious jewellery; World of Glamour, offering fine jewellery from Hong Kong-based exhibitors; the Antique & Vintage Jewellery Galleria, featuring vintage jewellery; Designer Galleria, spotlighting hip collections; Hall of Jade Jewellery, showing jade pieces in a variety of colours; and the Hall of Time, focusing on brand watches and clocks.
Products on Parade
Nearly 350 entries were received for the 15th Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition, with Fung Yin Ling, Tse Ka Wing and Luk Tony Teng winning Best of Show Awards in the Open Group. Ms Fung also took the Craftsmanship & Technology Award.
In the Student Group, Ho Mi Yee, from the Hong Kong Management Association, was named Champion. First Runner-up was Ho Mi Yee, also from the Hong Kong Management Association. Second Runner-up was Wong Wan Teng, from the School of Continuing Education at Hong Kong Baptist University.
The Jewellery Design Competition's winning and finalist pieces will be on show throughout the fair in the Display Area, Hall 1E Concourse, along with those from the Chuk Kam Jewellery Design Competition.
Exports of fine jewellery from Hong Kong totalled US$7.2 billion last year, up 6.5 per cent, year-on-year.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
