Jewellery show ‘will be blend of contemporary and bold designs’

THE region’s largest annual jewellery and watch exhibition – Jewellery Arabia – will be held this year from November 14 to 18 at Exhibition World Bahrain in Sakhir.

The event will be held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and organised by Informa Markets.

The 2023 edition will be a blend of contemporary and bold designs with new collections to be launched along with a wide selection of jewellery, advanced timepieces and fine writing instruments.

“Along with the Jewellery Arabia’s international expansion, this year’s event reimagines the world of modern luxury as we introduce a new range of ultra-high-end jewellery and watches to the kingdom,” stated the organisers in their latest brochure.

“Drawing inspiration from the Art Deco movement, a unique vision combining avant-garde styles with fine craftsmanship draws a new direction for Jewellery Arabia.”

The organisers shared a sneak peak of the show as they revealed that more than 25 per cent of new space has been added this year to accommodate increasing demand.

Furthermore, this year the show features exciting talk programmes featuring renowned designers and experts, with spotlight on practices or initiatives with the aim of making a meaningful impact in the region’s jewellery and watch space.

The Jewellery Arabia 2023 is expected to see local gold retailers showcasing their designs in the Bahraini Gold Suq, a Rising Stars Pavilion to promote budding designers and a Home Electronics Pavilion offering high-end lifestyle products.


Statistics from the last event show that more than 650 brands were exhibited, $65 million worth of jewellery and watch sales, and more than 62,000 high-spending visitors.

The top three visitor countries were Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, while the spending shopper’s budget ranged between $2,600 to $13,300 (36pc) and more than $13,300 (17pc).

Locally-designed and imported items worth BD888m were exhibited at last year’s expo that marked its 30th edition, up from BD510m in 2021.

Meanwhile, similar to last year the Scent Arabia Bahrain’s luxury fragrance event will also be held alongside Jewellery Arabia 2023.

The event will showcase the most luxurious and niche fragrances from the Gulf and beyond to a regional consumer audience.

Jewellery Arabia is the largest and most prestigious jewellery exhibition in the Middle East.
