Indian ambassador Vipul inaugurated Tuesday the India pavilion at the ongoing 20th Doha Jewellery & Watches Exhibition (DJWE).
The India pavilion showcases a number of jewellery houses which highlight craftsmanship, tradition, and contemporary designs.
The 216sq m pavilion hosts 17 exhibitors and 18 booths, presenting a collection of plain gold, diamond and precious stones-studded jewellery.
The participating exhibitors are Binnys Jewellery Pvt Ltd, G M Products Private Limited, K K Jewels, RR Gems Private Limited, Creative Overseas, Sital Dass Son, Shrians Jewels, De'viva Jewels, Izzari Jewells, Alankrti, SNS Enterprises, K Lalita Jewellers, Spectrum Jewelmart Pvt Ltd, 24K The Jewel Boutique, Kohinoor Jewellers, Panim Exports, and Anirudh Impex.
Apart from the exhibitors featured in the India pavilion, there are other jewellery manufacturers and traders from India, as well as those operating locally in Qatar, either independently or in collaboration with other big companies and exhibitors, elsewhere at the DJWE.
The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council, as the apex body of India's gem and jewellery industry, stands as the driving force behind India's global leadership in the trade, a statement issued in Doha Tuesday said.
India's jewellery sector combines traditional artistry with cutting-edge technology to produce modern designs.
Renowned for its skilled craftsmen and precision in cutting and polishing diamonds and precious stones, India has garnered global acclaim.
Qatar holds significance for India, contributing significantly to the export of gold jewellery, amounting to $200.88mn in the fiscal year 2022-23.
The India pavilion at the DJWE serves as a valuable platform to explore and comprehend consumer trends and preferences, particularly from this region, providing an opportunity for further engagement, the statement added.
