Tucson Jewelry Show
The annual International Tucson Gem Show is a must for any gem and jewelry lover. I have been attending this since I was a buyer for a design studio in Oakland, in the early 90's. Seems like ages ago. But I never grow tired of the amazing sights to behold, tables piled high with gems and pearls. It is crazy!
This mega show (45 separate shows) is a wonderful place to meet industry peers (55,000 people in two weeks, not including the vendors), attend workshops and even movie screenings. This year's show was filled with beauty; slices of gems, black gold with white gold, yellow gold and rose gold to list a few. Precious gems every where.
