SL’s first-ever Gem and Jewellery Sustainability Pavilion to be unveiled soon


January 03, Colombo (LNW): FACETS Sri Lanka 2024, Asia’s leading Gem and Jewellery Exhibition organised by the Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association (SLGJA), will be unveiling the country’s first-ever Sustainability Pavilion.

This ground-breaking initiative is set to captivate and educate visitors from around the world, offering a unique glimpse into the rich history of the Sri Lankan gem industry and its modern commitment to ethical practices, responsible sourcing and community engagement.

At the heart of the Sustainability Pavilion, FACETS Sri Lanka 2024 presents a historical journey through the evolution of the Sri Lankan gem industry.

Interactive displays and state-of-the-art touchscreens will immerse visitors in the fascinating transformation that has taken place over generations, shedding light on the industry’s incredible past.

As Facets enters its 30th year, it continues to be a beacon for the gem and jewellery industry, showcasing the beauty, diversity, and sustainability of Sri Lanka’s precious treasures to the world.

The Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association (SLGJA) in collaboration with the National Gem and Jewellery Authority (NGJA) and the Export Development Board announces the grand celebration of the 30th edition of Facets, Asia’s premier gem and jewellery exhibition.

Scheduled to take place at the esteemed Cinnamon Grand Colombo from 6 to 8 January 2024, this milestone event marks 30 years of successfully highlighting the splendour and glamour of Sri Lankan gems and jewellery in the global stage.

Facets Sri Lanka Chairman Altaf Iqbal expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming event, stating, “Facets has always emphasised that this show is for Sri Lanka, showcasing our rich heritage of gems and jewels to the world.”

“We aim to bring in reputed buyers from all over the globe with participants, sharing our exquisite gems and jewellery.”

Facets 2024 promises to be a spectacular platform, featuring several Pavilions that will capture the essence of Sri Lanka’s gem and jewellery legacy.

The Gem Pavilion, Premier Jewellery Pavilion, Sustainable Pavilion, Sapphire Masterpiece Pavilion, NGJA SME Pavilion and the SLGJA Pavilion will be integral parts of this grand event.

A highlight of Facets 2024 is the Sapphire Masterpiece Pavilion, which is a first in Sri Lanka. This pavilion is meticulously designed to exhibit the diverse range of Sri Lankan sapphires, including mesmerising blue, pink, yellow, purple colours, alexandrite, cat’s eyes and many more varieties.

What sets this showcase apart is the unprecedented inclusion of both rough and cut and polished stones, all sourced from various regions across Sri Lanka.

This ground-breaking approach marks the first time in history that a gem and jewellery show will display stones in their raw, uncut state alongside their refined, cut, and polished forms.
