NEW YORK, NY (January 14, 2015) – This week, the Diamond Dealers Club (DDC) of New York is welcoming hundreds of diamantaires after the holiday season to participate in its second edition of India Diamond Week.

In conjunction with the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), the Diamond Dealers Club is hosting over 70 exhibitors comprised of India-based companies and DDC members and companies.
As a first-time participant, Chirag Kakadia, Director, Sheetal Manufacturing Company Pvt.

All that matters now is how we eat it.”
Another first-time India Diamond Week participant, Chetan M. Javeri of Chetan M. Javeri based in India, said he’s happy with the experience. “I think this is a boost for business, and that we will have a positive season ahead.”

This time I’m able to pick up where I left off a few months ago, and make more sales while seeing familiar faces. This is a good platform because it gives all the diamond manufacturers an opportunity to come and explore the market.”
A member of the DDC for 39 years, Izhak Grum of LLD USA, Inc. described how these shows make an impact on business. “If you meet more people, you’ll make more sales. That’s what shows are all about.”
