This is the big one for jewelry and especially loose stones. Offering 3 days of browsing, haggling, and eye popping sparklers - more sparklers than the Fourth of July ! This one takes place in the Qwest Field Event center which means LOTS of space. Their brochure specifies about 135 vendors and they supply you a map at the door. If you have a wedding or an anniversary or other special occasion in your future this is a great place to visit.

As I've mentioned before, this show is all about jewelry and I'm not. I'm into rock hounding but it is fun just to see how many times my eyes fall out of my head. There are 3 or 4 (count 'em!) vendors featuring minerals in their more raw format, I saw cool, large, raw topaz, tourmaline, opal and others.

There's free jewelry cleaning available. No strollers, no photography, and nothing to keep the kids interested. A "trade room" is available to wholesalers which I did not see.

my favorite vendor this show: S & S gems, Inc. - beautiful stones and friendly people

The organization: International Gem and Jewelry Show, Inc.
