“India’s Jan-Mar 2021 gold demand rose 37% to 140 tonne on the back of Covid containment and positive sentiment following start of the vaccination programme. It presented a glimpse of gold’s underlying strength of resurgence when we learn to live with Covid,” he said.

India’s overall gems and jewellery exports surged by 92.37 per cent in June to Rs 20,851.28 crore (USD 2,863.76 million) compared to the same month of 2020, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) said on Wednesday.

The gross export in June 2020 stood at Rs 10,838.93 crore (USD 1,430.68), according to data given by GJEPC.

The overall gross export of cut and polished diamonds went up by 113.25 per cent in June to Rs 14,512.11 crore (USD 2000.48 million) compared to Rs 6,805.25 crore (USD 898.30 million) in the corresponding month last year.

Meanwhile, the overall gems and jewellery exports witnessed 254.75 per cent growth during the April-June quarter of this financial year at Rs 67,265.66 crore (USD 9,182.38 million) as compared to Rs 18,961.63 crore (USD 2,504.58 million) in the same quarter of FY21.

Growth in exports is mainly due to the revived import demand in the leading export market of USA and the fulfilment of orders received by numerous Indian exhibitors during the Virtual Buyer-Seller Meets (VBSMs) conducted by the Council,” GJEPC chairman Colin Shah said.

Revival of demand for studded jewellery products and re-stocking the inventory levels majorly attributed to the swift recovery of exports of cut and polished diamonds as well as studded jewellery, Shah added.
