What is IJK?


IJK is Japan's Largest and Best Mid-Year Jewellery Show! A wide range of jewellery from fine jewellery to fashion jewellery as well as a variety of loose stones and strands will be exhibited. Also, related products such as materials and services will gather under one roof. Every year, executives and professional buyers from jewellery retailers, department stores, select shops, etc., visit IJK from all over the world to source. Serious business discussions take place everywhere during 3 show days. In recent years, a surge in overseas buyers especially from nearby Asian countries are adding much buzz to the show.

2. Japan’s economy growth boosts the buying power

Featured News

Japan’s economy recorded its longest growth streak since its heyday in the late 1980s, after expanding in the last three months of 2017 for an eighth straight quarter, the latest indication that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is succeeding in generating more stable growth.
The world’s third-largest economy expanded at an annualized pace of 0.5% in the October-December quarter, but at a much slower pace than a revised 2.2% in the previous three months as the overall contribution to growth from trade weakened.
