Jewellery, Gems & Watches
The Jewellery, Gems & Watches (JGW) sector has undergone major changes throughout the years and is now one of growing importance to the Mauritian economy. At the very beginning, the J&W&D sector consisted mainly of small-scaled operators producing basic Jewellery products for the local market.

Today, we have some 45 operators who are involved in the production of high-end products for world-wide famous brands such as Swarovski, Poncini, Tiffany, Gucci and Chanel.

The main strengths of our jewellery industry are quality and craftsmanship. Moreover, our competitiveness is enhanced by value-added elements such as marketing, design, and distribution.
