Jewels of India expo from Oct 23

Gold prices have touched Rs 20,000 for one tola but the yellow metal fever has not diminished. Expecting a high turnover of people, the exhibition is confident of getting over 50,000 visitors. In its 12th year, the exhibition will have 105 jewellers from across the country.

“The biggest contingent is from Jaipur, who will exhibit Kundan and Meenakari jewellery,” said exhibition convener Sandeep Bekal.

But what about the sky-rocketing prices? Bekal is not worried. He says, “The increasing cost of gold is not the problem, stability is. People want the gold prices to stabilise instead of fluctuating often.”

As a matter of fact, the demand for gold has never come down as people think of it as an investment, he added. The jewellers are made to engrave hallmarks on their jewellery to ensure high quality, Bekal said.
