“The world market for fashion accessories is estimated to be of the order of 16.3-billion-dollar and India's share in the same has been very negligible. Therefore, there is a great scope for further increasing exports of Indian fashion accessories and jewellery,” Smt. Menon said.

Fashion jewellery and accessories has tremendous potential world wide. Even despite recession in the world, the market for fashion accessories continued to benefit and remained stable.
