An unique initiative by UBM India, the RJGA has grown impressively and is recognised as the most transparent and process driven awards in the sector. Initially positioned for the North market, a great indicator of RJGA's rise in the popularity stakes on a pan-India scale is the stupendous  40 % growth  in nominations received over last year. The tally of over  650 nominations  came from reputed and little known jewellers, hailing from Tier 2 and 3 towns as well as the Metros.

Along with Ernst & Young as process advisors, and its reputed panel of judges comprising industry veterans such as Ms Neha Lulla, Ms Shanoo Bijlani, Ms Paulomi Sanghavi, Ms Rosy Ahluwalia, Mr Saurav Maheshwari, Mr Piyush Gupta, Mr Sudhir Singhal and Mr Ashok Seth, the RJGA drew out the best of India's talent in the retail jewellery industry through two rounds of Jury; a preliminary round, followed by the final round, where jewellers had to display actual jewellery pieces to the judges.

The extensive award categories this year have been crafted, keeping in mind, the diverse activities of the retail jewellery industry. These included those from various functions of the industry such as  'Store of the Year', 'Employer of the Year', 'Most Innovative Marketing Campaign', 'Excellence in Customer Service'  and  'Excellence in Design'.

With more than 500 jewellery retailers, manufacturers, HNIs and the capital's fashionable set in attendance, the awards night also comprised four captivating fashion sequences by show stoppers such as Aditi Hundia - Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva Supranational 2018; Shraddha Shashidhar - Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva 2017 - Miss Universe India; Priyadarshini Chatterjee - Fbb Femina Miss India World 2016 and Peden Ongmu Namgyal - Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva Supranational 2017. They upped the glamour quotient considerably, and provided a glimpse of the stunning collections of jewellery that are bound to make their way to key retail jewellery stores in the upcoming High Season. The highlight of RJGA 2018 was the  Walk of Fame  for the Jewellery Industry -  an exclusive showcase of master pieces by eminent brands including Shri Balaji Gold, Vikas Chains, Savio and Savya jewels. Insights from industry stalwarts, entertainment acts and networking sessions were some of the other high points of the evening.
