Conceived in 2005 with the intention to promote the jewellery industry and trade in South India, an initiative to launch the first ever B-2-B trade exhibition was undertaken by the Madras Jewellers & Diamond Merchants Association (MJDMA). The first edition of GJIIE was held in Chennai in 2005 and subsequently MJDMA had organized GJIIE which were held annually in the years 2006, 2008.
