The professional service and strict regulations, along with rigorous quality certifications, instill consumer confidence. As a connoisseur of natural diamond jewellery, it was an unexpected delight to not only find a perfect piece chosen by my husband but also win the grand prize of a 3-carat natural diamond.”

Mr. Victor Yiu, the Chairman of DFHK said: “During the extended festive period, encompassing Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Lunar New Year, and Valentine’s Day, the festive atmosphere contributed to vibrant consumer sentiment, with a total of nearly 12 million[1] visitors to Hong Kong over the span of three months. Benefiting from the rebound in visitor numbers, the total retail sales value in December 2023 and January 2024 reached a staggering HKD 72.8 billion[2], with the sales value of jewellery, watches, and luxury gifts showing an average year-on-year increase of 37%[3]. We believe that the local diamond industry has successfully emerged from the trough and is steadily on the rise. With the recovery of the tourism and retail sectors in Hong Kong, as well as the resumption of jewellery exhibitions, we are confident that the sales of jewellery can return to pre-pandemic levels.”
