Press Release: The Israeli diamond industry will again have a major presence at the JCK show in Las Vegas in June. The Israel Diamond Pavilion, hosted by the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI) Group of Companies, will feature 31 exhibitors, with an additional 25 Israeli diamond companies exhibiting throughout the show.

The U.S. is Israel’s leading market for polished diamonds, making the JCK show especially important for the Israeli industry. In 2011, Israel sold close to 40 percent of its net polished diamond exports or $2.8 billion to the U.S. market.

The Israel Diamond Pavilion will be located in the Diamond Plaza Booths B3718-B3759 and B3783-B3789. IDI will be represented at stand B3744 within the pavilion. Click here for a virtual tour of the Israeli pavilion.

IDI's chairman, Moti Ganz, said, “The U.S. market is showing recovery and we are pleased to see that the demand for diamonds is growing. About one-half of the diamonds sold in the U.S. are Israeli diamonds. Americans appreciate diamonds as a symbol of love and commitment. We are confident in our ability to continue to be the major supplier of diamonds to the U.S. market,” he said. 

Ganz added that the Israeli diamond industry is “an island of stability, in a time of volatility and uncertainty in other centers.” Ganz noted that the Israeli industry has proved its strength and vitality by its remarkable recovery after the world economic crisis. “Our economic stability makes us a very attractive source for diamonds. This is the basis for our new marketing campaign whose slogan is ‘Welcome to Israel, where stability reigns,’” he said.

Ganz concluded, “JCK Las Vegas is one of the most important trade shows for our industry. IDI is pleased that this year we have a great turnout of Israeli companies. We look forward to welcoming a great many buyers to the Israel Diamond Pavilion and we are confident that it will be a successful show for the Israeli exhibitors.''
