“With hundreds of international jewellery brands at this year’s event bringing their rarest and most exquisite collections, every budget is catered for and the astonishing sets from a vast number of collections will delight our visitors.”
Among many striking pieces on display, Taka Jewellery, a jewellery wholesaler from Singapore, will showcase their earrings and rings made of blue and pink sapphires alongside fancy diamond chokers.
