Mark of success for Macau jewellery fair

CMP has just run its first jewellery fair in Macau. I'll be interested to hear reports of how people think it went although it clearly had good support from the Israeli diamond trade as well as Hong Kong jewellers.

For years now, the big jewellery fairs in Hong Kong have generated regular (and fairly similar) stories about ambitious efforts to relieve the exhibitors of their jewels. In some cases, it has appeared to be more an effort to relieve the insurance companies of their profits.

However, you might argue that the fact that jewel thieves appear to have targeted CMP's brand new show - or so this Macau Daily Times piece would have us believe - is a sign that it is already being taken seriously by all elements in the jewellery trade.
