We had a terrific time. First, we took the advice of other members and had lunch outside of the Expo Center. It was right around the corner at Wilbur's BBQ - great BBQ, as always! They never disappoint you with their BBQ.
The show was amazing!...continued

Fantastic selection! I was doubtful of advertising but there really was something for everyone---a large variety of everything--original designs, silver, gold, paltinum, beads, loose gems and stones, findings, costume, classic, fun, ethnic,...continued

If you're into jewelry this is a great event to attend.... but wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for some aisles that are so crowded it's like rush hour on the Beltway.

I enjoyed the show, but was VERY disappointed that the "free" tickets I purchased through Goldstar were not being honored by the event. I will be hesitant to use Goldstar again because of this

I try to make it to the Gem and Jewelry Show every time it's at the Dulles Expo Center. There's a huge variety -- diamonds and fine jewelry, sterling silver, beaded jewelry, and tons of supplies for jewelry making. I'm more of a beaded/sterling...continued

There is a wide array of beautiful jewelry at this event - everything from diamonds to stone beads to jewelry making supplies. I think it might be best to go on Sunday, as many vendors sell items for "50% off." I actually went all three days and...continued

Wasn't as upscale as i would've liked. Seemed to be mostly for people who make jewelry from pre-made bead strands.

It was a bit overwhelming - so many vendors and so many people - but the prices were good and the selection astonishing. Definitely fun.

This was my first time attending the gem and jewelry show - it was so much fun, wonderful bargains and so much to see! All of the jewelers I spoke with only sell thru the gem and jewelry show...and I saw things I can't get elsewhere. I will be a...continued

This was my first time attending the International Gem & Jewerly Show and I must say I was impressed. I was not expecting it to be so large with so many vendors with all sorts of price ranges and styles of jewerly/gems. I would definitely come...continued

Great event! If you're going to buy jewelry for anyone in your life for any occasion, this is the place to do it! Bring your wallet/credit card/checkbook and be ready to use it!

A great place to buy beads if you enjoy making your own jewelry. The have a great variety to choose from - from $1 per strand to gemstones that are quite expensive.

I didn't plan on buying as much as I did. My friend and I enjoyed the quality and diverse merchandise selections at the show. I can see why on the third day it was still so busy! Looking forward to next year!

It was table after table of basically the same stuff. They need to add some variety to their vendors. We walked through one half of it and left. Usually the shows at the Expo Center are good. This one was boring.

A good opportunity to purchase beads and jewelry fixings at "sale" prices. While you can get similar prices online, I think there is no substitute to actually seeing the beads before you buy them. There seemed to be less variety than the Fall...continued

An overwhelming amount of jewelry, gems, and beads.
Great place to look for engagement/wedding settings!
Or the jewelry marker's dream of supplies!

Arrived early to lots of free parking. Long line to get into the event but the line moved quickly as soon as the doors opened for business. Handed the printed confirmation to the attendant and went right into the Expo Center.

The event was...continued
