Jewellery’s role in supporting developing economies must be part of its public image, says CIBJO President at Rendez-Vous Gemmologiques de Paris

While jewellery is a luxury product and non-essential to those who purchase it, the jewellery and gemstone sectors are industries that are essential to the economic and social development of economies and communities around the world, said CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri, speaking today at the 15th Rendez-Vous Gemmologiques de Paris in the French capital.
