JIS is proud to present the third edition of Catching Up With JIS.  This community newsletter is dedicated to providing you with industry news, trends, and updates on all things JIS.  Don’t miss out on your chance to Catch Up With Jewelers International Showcase.


THE SCOOP gives you inside access to exciting, interesting, and entertaining JIS exhibitors from around the world. Join us as we sit down with industry leaders and learn things about them you never thought you would!

In this edition of THE SCOOP, JIS sits down with Tiago Possebon, CEO of Possebon Joias. A newer exhibitor to JIS, Tiago has been involved in the jewelry industry for most of his life. Join us as we get THE SCOOP from Tiago.

The Scoop 1How did you get started in the jewelry industry?

Possebon Joias’ history began with my grandfather who used to extract and trade amethysts and rough fire agates which we used to extract in the country side of Putinga City, Rio Grande do Sul state in Brazil. Then his son, Mr. Valdir Possebon decided not only sell rough amethysts and agates but to cut and polish those stones. Then I decided to produce fashion jewelry with those polished, natural, beautiful gemstones.

How long have you been exhibiting at JIS?

Possebon Joias started to exhibit at JIS in 2015 and has exhibited at the shows in 2016 as well.  We look forward to exhibiting in the upcoming JIS Miami October 2016 and we plan on exhibiting for years to come.

What is the first word that comes to mind when you hear Jewelers International Showcase?

The first word that comes to mind when we hear Jewelers International Showcase is relationship. The reason for that is because Possebon Joias is a well-established, consolidated company in Brazil. We are one of the major Brazilian fashion jewelry with natural gemstones manufacturer and based on our strategic plan, we decided to expand overseas exhibiting in a reliable, secure, professional, worldwide recognized jewelry fair, Jewelers International Showcase. So, after we attended for the first time, we developed many important relationships and love continuing to build upon them at all of the JIS Shows.

The Scoop 3What is your favorite book to read and why?

I have 2 children, a girl and a boy at home. They are young and are now learning how to talk, so the book that I’m reading now is a book that helps to teach my children letters and numbers.  These are my favorite books right now because I realize the importance of education for my children, so they can learn and develop on their own.  As a father, I try to do my best so that one day they can inherit Possebon Joias and innovate like my father did and like I did.

What is one food you could eat every day for the rest of your life and why?

As a fourth generation Italian, my favorite food is pasta.  We live in a city which was founded and colonized by Italians in Brazil.  Our culture, customs, traditions, and lifestyle are very tight to our Italian roots.  Both of my parents, my wife, and most of my employees are all of Italian decent – so sometimes I feel I’m more Italian than Brazilian!

What are you looking forward to the most at JIS Miami October 2016?

The reason we exhibit and will continue to exhibit at JIS Miami October and other JIS Shows is to solidify  current relationships and develop new ones.  Wholesalers, retailers, and customers outside Brazil aren’t familiar with Possebon Joias and our challenge now is to be known and expand our market share worldwide.  JIS Miami October is a very important step and business partner so we can achieve our business goals.
