It’s that time of the year once again to announce the approach of the premier event of the gem and jewellery industry of Sri Lanka – the FACETS International Gem and Jewellery Exhibition. All are invited to visit the 29th edition of FACETS, which is scheduled to be held at the end of August at the BMICH. 

Organised by the Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association in collaboration with the National Gem and Jewellery Authority and the Export Development Board, the exhibition enjoys the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena who graces the event every year.

Since its inception FACETS has gained a reputation as one of the must-visit events for gem and jewellery experts and enthusiasts across the globe. It is the one place where the most exquisite specimens of Sri Lanka’s topmost resource can be viewed and purchased. FACETS brings all the gems and jewellery possible under one roof. Main sellers, SMEs and, for the first time in FACETS history, a number of Sea Street jewellers will be showcasing their best wares. Thus, FACETS 2019 will boast a wide array of merchandise, from precious gems and exquisite jewellery to semi-precious stones and fashionable costume jewellery, to suit every taste and every budget. 

For those on the lookout for the perfect gift for their loved ones, FACETS is the ideal place to find one of timeless value. The value of a gem stone will stand the test of time and its value will continue to appreciate as time goes by. It will be the perfect statement of your undying affection.

The exhibition will also feature lapidary stalls that educate guests about the processes of gem cutting and jewellery design. This year FACETS is set to host an impressive number of international stalls featuring merchandise from all over the world.
