JCK solidifying its position as the most important global gathering for the jewelry trade, concluded its 2024 edition on a high note. Considered the โ€œSuper Bowlโ€ of the jewelry industry, JCK continues to set the tone, the trends, and the mood for the jewelry industry for the year to come and it was an honour for me to be part of the JCK Show and share the best of Gems and Jewellery from May 31 to June 3 in The Venetian Convention& Expo Center, Las Vegas!

With โ€˜Loveโ€™ as the theme for JCK 2024, the show continued to be a hub for exciting activation. “This yearโ€™s JCK was another that surpassed all expectations,โ€ says Sarin Bachmann, Group Vice President of RXโ€™s jewelry portfolio and event leader for JCK. โ€œEven in times when there is uncertainty in the jewelry industry, JCK proves once again to be the place the entire industry gathers to source products, unveil new technologies and strategies, learn, discuss, network and place orders for the rest of the selling season. There was a noticeable shift in the energy of the industry once they arrived at JCK and Luxury and the enthusiasm on the show floor prevailed and left the industry on a very positive note.โ€
