Abu Dhabi’s Jewellery and Watch Show is finally back this year after its cancellation last year due to the pandemic, and Emirati designers will be showcasing their amazing creations, along with Arab and international jewelry designers.

The UAE are not only hosting the highly anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai this fall, they are also welcoming thousands of attendees at one of the major yearly events: The Jewellery and Watch Show (JWS). The exhibition, in its 28th edition, will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center from the 26th of October until the 30th of it, featuring local, as well as Arab and worldwide jewelers.

Yes, the 5-days-event that returned after it was cancelled due to the pandemic, will offer visitors a trip around more than 140 brands (between jewelry and watch designers), but is also giving priority to Emirati designers who will have a dedicated area only for them and which will be called: The Emirati Design Gallery.  

All this in favor of encouraging the local talents and designers and to make a great space for them to present the culture and traditions of the region.

We picked 4 Among the Emirati designers participating in the event for you to keep on your radar.
