Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair
The Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair (BGJF) is a biannual jewelry exhibition held in the capital of Thailand. The event features about 900 exhibitors in more than 2,200 booths, showcasing selected domestic and international jewelers, as well as producers and dealers of gems.

The inaugural Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair was held in 1983. For the first decade of its existence, the fair was held once a year, but the ever-increasing attendance prompted the organizers to make it a biannual event held in February and September. Today, it is one of the most renowned gems and jewelry trade fairs in the industry, both in the region and in the world.

The trade fair is organized by the Department of International Trade Promotion under the Ministry of Commerce of Thailand. One of its main goals is to build the competitiveness of Thai manufacturers and exporters to fulfill their potential. However, the event doesn’t only feature local exhibitors, but also key players in the global gems and jewelry industry. Since its inception, it has become an important trading and networking platform with international coverage.

The Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair is an internationally renowned marketplace for a wide range of innovative designs and products of the finest quality. It showcases the craftsmanship of numerous local manufacturers, introduces visitors to international exhibitors, and exhibits an extensive collection of gemstones and precious metals sourced from Thailand and other countries, as well as jewelry from manufacturers from Thailand and abroad.

Product groups showcased at the fair include gemstones (precious stones, semi-precious stones, rough stones), diamonds, pearls, synthetic stones, gold and silver jewelry, fine jewelry, costume and fashion jewelry, jewelry parts, equipment and tools, displays and packaging. Among its visitors, there are manufacturers, importers, distributors, buying agents, wholesalers, designers, retailers, brokers and trading companies, boutiques, department stores, fashion showrooms, as well as members of the general public.

Alongside the main showcase, the programming of the trade fair includes a variety of special events, including the Niche Showcase, the New Faces zone showcasing emerging designers and boutiques, Thai Jewelry Brands and Innovation, fashion shows, exciting talks, seminars and conferences, and more.
