In order to increase the sales of gold jewellery throughout the country, the India Jewellery Shopping Festival (IJSF) is a novel concept that has never been undertaken in any industry along the whole value chain. It is the only initiative in India that will reach the general public and pique their interest in jewellery, fostering "Inclusivity for all. The upcoming India Jewellery Shopping Festival is planned in such a way that it will not only boost the jewellery industry but also restore customers' trust in jewellers and their high-quality jewellery as the most secure and long-lasting investments, contributing to overall social security.”
Mr Saiyam Mehra, Chairman, Chairman GJC, said that, “IJSF is a potential pool for all jewellery traders, and significant interest has been demonstrated by important industry players. The event is advantageous to both consumers and manufacturers. The chance for the jewellers to grow and boost sales has arrived. Shoppers discover these pieces in the meantime and keep them for important events like weddings and other celebrations. The Gem and Jewellery Council anticipates that the entire value chain will be involved in this event, which guarantees enormous income potential. The event encourages business and rewards customers. Furthermore, it encourages professionalism and adherence to standard business practises by encouraging the use of reputable jewellers with established business strategies.”
Mr. Manoj Jha, Joint Convenor, said that, “The festival will benefit the entire jewellery industry as well as customers. IJSF is making appealing offers and giving customers the chance to win up to 40kg of gold as a prize, as well as jewellery worth approx. 3 crore INR and 100 gold coins encrusted with Divine Solitaire Diamonds. As India celebrates 75 years of independence, we provide approx. 3000 kilogram of special edition Amrit Mahotsav silver coins, as souvenir, which will be delivered as presents to clients with every purchase of Rs.25000/-.”
It's exciting enough to win 1 kg of gold in addition to receiving 25 grams of gold on a regular basis. The industry would benefit from these marketing all throughout the festive season. We have partnered with process advisor E&Y, who will monitor this entirely digital procedure, to ensure complete transparency.”
