Only 10% of the world’s 200 countries produce jewels. As a result, the industry’s great potential has been highlighted. The company’s goal is to develop our country as the top destination for all jewellery enthusiasts and to promote jewels tourism in India, which is world-renowned for its intricate designs and remarkable craftsmanship. We also wish to provide cost-effectiveness by facilitating GST refunds and import charges for visitors before they depart for their home nation. We are in contact with the administration about this. The enormous success of the Dubai Shopping Festival is our primary goal.

Consumers and producers both benefit from the event. The jewellers have the opportunity to expand and increase their sales.

They are implementing a number of efforts to promote client excitement and participation. IJSF will make appealing offers and give customers the chance to win up to 40kg of gold as a prize, as well as jewellery worth 3 crore INR and 100 gold coins encrusted with Divine Solitaire Diamonds. As India celebrates 75 years of independence, we provide 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/-.”

The ultimate prize of 1kg of gold, together with recurring rewards of 25 grammes of gold, is intriguing enough. Such promotions would boost the industry throughout the holiday season. To ensure complete openness, we have teamed with EY, who will oversee this process, which will be fully digital.”
