The 2023 Congress, which will take place at the Jaipur Exhibition and Congress Centre (JECC), is being hosted by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and the National Gem & Jewellery Council of India (NGJCI).

The World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) will hold its 2023 annual congress in Jaipur, Rajasthan, from October 3 to 5 this year. Pre-congress meetings will be held on October 1 and 2.

The 2023 congress, which will take place at the Jaipur Exhibition and Congress Centre (JECC), is being hosted by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and the National Gem & Jewellery Council of India (NGJCI).

CIBJO congresses serve as the official gathering place for the World Jewellery Confederation’s Assembly of Delegates and are also the venue for the annual meetings of CIBJO’s sectoral commissions, where amendments can be introduced to the organization’s definitive directories of international industry standards for diamonds, coloured stones, pearls, gem labs, precious metals, coral and responsible sourcing, known as the Blue Books.

Jaipur’s connection with the jewellery industry dates back to its very establishment in 1727. Skilled craftsmen, including jewellers and stonecutters, were brought in, creating an enamelling and gem-setting tradition that continues to this very day. It is estimated that the number of people employed in established factories and the cottage industry, both in the city and surrounding areas, is between 200,000 and 300,000, with more than half of them involved in gem cutting.

A dedicated 2023 CIBJO congress website will be launched shortly.
