Gems and jewelry is an emerging sector of Pakistan with an immense export potential. In Pakistan the current level of trade, including the vast informal sector is expected to be more than $50 million annually. Most of the exports are in form of rough stones, mainly because of lack of sophisticated processing industry in the country. The proposed project aims at filling this gap of value adding facilities in the gems industry. Financial analysis shows the unit making profit from the very first year. An enormous export market for the Pakistani gemstones exists in West Europe, USA and East Asia. It is of important significance that the gem industry and the Government of Pakistan are recognizing the potential in the local value addition and consequently import duty on lapidary equipment has been waived off. This proposed unit with modern processing machines is an addition to a gems processing industry where dozens of small players are involved in cutting and polishing by simple and unsophisticated tools which are not preferred by many trader/exporters of gems.

A lack of passion for gold jewelry in Pakistan, and even amongst the Pakistani expatriates, is hard to imagine. It is a cultural idiosyncrasy within the South Asian Region. Gold jewelry is perceived not only as a decorative item but a symbol of status. The perception pervades in all classes. Another reason for the vitality of the gold jewelry market is that all domestic jewelry products are priced by weight, which results in the fact that people perceive gold jewelry as a means of security net for the future because gold alone has an internationally agreed price. Global trade for Gems and Jewellery has shown a positive growth trend showing increasing demand for these valuable fashion articles in international market.
