Many leading UK industry suppliers, from manufacturers to designers, featured among dozens of exhibitors at the event, organised by Retail Jeweller, taking place at the Hilton Metropole hotel in the Edgeware Road district of central London.

Despite fears of recession in the UK, retailers were busily re-stocking jewellery lines; trade sources reported strong enquiries for lab-grown diamonds driven by attractive prices.
