Singapore International Jewelry Expo 2013 @ Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre

Singapore International Jewelry Expo (SIJE) 2013 - I was invited to the Launch of this event held at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre on 4 July 2013 as a Media VIP. As the exhibition took place from 4-7 July 2013, I attended the opening day as well as the closing day.

The most memorable of this expo was that I tried on a 10 carat diamond ring that costs USD580,000! It was an enchanting moment :) The funniest part was that I left with a bigger diamond ring that can fit 3 of my fingers as I won the item in the lucky dip. I am such a happy and lucky girl! It was a giant Diamond Ring that acts as a Napkin holder. Photo taken below while I was waiting for the Valet to get our car.

For the Launch and Grand Opening of this event on 4th July 2013, Member of Parliament - Dr. Lily Neo was the Guest of Honor and she was chosen to cut the ribbon! There was Lion dance as all VIP guests were welcome into the expo with a grand entrance. SIJE official website is at

Upon entering the exhibition hall, I was brought to my seat in front of a big stage. After several speeches by the VIP guests and Guest of Honour - Dr Lily Neo, there was a special fashion show where models parade around proudly with the most expensive and most exquisite jewelry.

This mega event covers over 8,000 square metres of exhibition space and is targeted at business and consumer buyers. This SIJE event brings together leading jewelry designers, brands and gemstones suppliers all over the World to showcase the most exquisite jewelry collection. There were many jewelry brands mainly from countries such as Italy, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, Japan, China etc. and I was almost blinded by all the "bling" shining under the bright spotlights.

I had a great time visiting different booths and checking out the most unique jewelry designs that are really one of a kind. I was spoilt for choice! I only bought an 18K Gold Necklace with a Crystal Ribbon pendant which looks really sweet and pretty on the closing day at a very good price!

Below are the highlights of the SIJE Event held from 4-7 July 2013 at Marina Bay Sands!
