BIRMINGHAM, England – Footfall was high and the mood upbeat at Jewellery & Watch on its first day on Sunday February 5, as visitors flocked to the show for the latest silver and gold jewellery designs, pearl jewellery, luxury piercing jewellery, watches and jewellery accessories.
Jewellery & Watch, part of Moda, Spring Fair, located in Hall 2 at the NEC Birmingham, UK, runs until February 8, 2023.
With fashion stores buying more higher end jewellery and jewellers looking to diversify their offering, Jewellery & Watch is the perfect place to discover a variety of unique, fine and fashionable jewellery pieces.
Spring Fair is where brand-new products are launched across home design, fashion and footwear, jewellery and accessories, and the latest trends are showcased for the year ahead.
