Ladies and Gentlemen!

Thank you all for joining us for this year’s National Chinese American Jewelry Association’s, or NCAJA, Chinese New Year party. Tonight, our guests hail from all parts of the world, allowing this year’s Tucson Gem Shows to showcase the best jewels–and jewelers–in the industry. This gives us the opportunity to admire, learn from, and support one another, and pass along this invaluable knowledge and expertise from one generation to the next.


NCAJA has hosted this event for over 20 years, which would not have been possible without your support, and our association strives to meet your needs and support you, our cherished members. Although gem exhibitions have had a few challenges over the years, we know you all are working tirelessly to continue to not only keep this industry afloat, but also to meet the demands of an expected upcoming boom in business. Our executive team at NCAJA is committed to doing our best to serve our fellow members, enabling the gem and jewelry industries to maintain, and even exceed, past successes and to continue in prosperity.


Thank you very much for your support of NCAJA over the years, and here’s to our continued efforts in 2018–and beyond! — toward our collective achievements and accomplishments. For now, let’s celebrate Lunar New Year–the year of the Dog– by eating, drinking, and being merry! Thank you all, and happy New Year!


Victor Wu, President
National Chinese American Jewelry Association
