The event is opened by Guest of Honour, Dr Lily Neo, Member of Parliament, Tanjong Pagar GRC.
We were also treated to a stunning jewelry fashion show after the opening ceremony.
The expo highlight is an exceptionally rare violet-blue stunner, the largest natural tanzanite ever showcased here in Singapore and South East Asia. This 118-carat beauty priced at more than S$1 million is showcased by DeGem at booth G15 & G16.
Also showcased by DeGem is a rare 107-carat astonishing, fancy coloured diamond. Priced at USD$4 million, the soft cushion shape of this magnificent jewel is enhanced by its rich, champagne colour that sparkles brilliantly as the diamond turns.
Besides the jewelry booths from all over the world, there is a Japanese booth M15 by Eiko Kogyo Co Ltd that specialises in safes. On display is the secret safe LIFT priced at USD$10 000 which is operated by a power supply.
SIJE will be held at Marina Bay Sands Singapore Convention Centre Halls A & B from 4 to 7 July 2013. Exhibition hours are from 11.30am to 7pm. For more information, please check out http://www.sije.com.sg
