Local jeweller makes Guinness World Record at Expo Sharjah
A local participant in the 48th Middle East Watch and Jewellery Exhibition has made Guinness World Record after displaying over 50,000 jewellery items worth Dhs1.3 billion at one stall.
The record was confirmed during the visit of Sheikh Khalid Bin Abdullah Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Ports and Customs Department and Chairman of the Free Zone in Sharjah, accompanied by Salem Al Shueibi, owner of the Salem Al Shueibi Jewellery Establishment, visited the Salem Al Shueibi Jewellery display stand at the 48th Middle East Watch and Jewellery Exhibition at Expo Sharjah.
The exhibition witnessed the celebration of Salem Al Shueibi Jewellery Foundation for achieving a global achievement with an Emirati character by entering the Guinness World Records as the largest Jewellery show in the world, for 50,000 pieces of jewellery collected in one place.
The event was attended by a large number of visitors. Local, Arab and international media persons covered the record. On this occasion, Salem Al Shueibi said, “Father Zayed, may God have mercy on him, said, ‘Men make factories, and we say the Emirates make men, with determination, organization and management with continuous cooperation, supervision and the solidarity of all the company's cadres, from the owner to the youngest employee. We were able to achieve this honorable achievement.” He further added, “Excellence is a title for us.
We participated in 47 past editions of the exhibition and this 48th edition, and we were very keen to have a special imprint since the first session, because in the end the exhibition is international, and we are a company that represents the UAE in its pieces, and we have achieved this achievement in Guinness World Records as the largest Jewellery show this year.
But the truth is more than that, we have the largest area and the largest number of employees. Unique and distinguished cuts and diamonds are among the rarest stones in the world.”
“We launched an Emirati exhibition in June under the slogan of 50-50-50 as the numbers are explained by words and actions: 50-Years of achievements and diligence, with wise leadership and bright minds, to make the UAE one of the first countries in the world in most areas of life; 50-A legacy made by Salem Al Shueibi Foundation for Jewellery; 50-A thousand pieces of Jewellery collected in one place to enter the Guinness World Records in the name of the United Arab Emirates.”
He also vowed to continue his participation to enthrall the local and Arab visitors coming from different parts of the world to attend this exclusive watch and jewellery exhibition with established firms from the region and outside.
