Dr. Amit Mitra, Hon’ble Minister of State, Department of Finance, Excise, Public Enterprise, Information technology and Electronics and Industrial Reconstruction, Government of West Bengal was present to inaugurate the second edition of Gem and Jewellery Fair in the city of Kolkata. The inauguration was done at the Milan Mela Complex.


The Gem and Jewellery Fair is spread over an area of 3100 square meters in area. The fair saw the presence of jewelry makers from not just Kolkata, but also from places like Jaipur, Gujarat, Mumbai and so on. Some of the renowned names who participated in this second edition of the fair include Tantiwala Gehna (Jaipur), Unique Chains (Mumbai), Krizz and Emerald (Chennai), Ram Bhajo (Chennai) along with more than two hundred participants from the city.

Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Mitra highlighted on the unavailability of the raw material in the country. India has to depend a lot on the import from the other countries.


Stressing on the important role played by the Karigars in the gem and jewelry industry, CGJWA also honored these silent workers who toil to make such beautiful pieces of jewelry. They were presented with the Golden Hands Award at an event held at The Hyatt Regency later on. This initiative gave them recognition and also recognized their contribution to the jewelry industry.

The participants at the fair not only exhibited their jewelry but also took orders from the customers. Some even sold their jewelry to the customers at the fair. Initiatives of this kind will surely enable the jewelry makers to know about the tastes of the customers and also supply them with better designed jewelry in future.
