This year marks my 4th visit to the Gem show and it's pretty much the same every year. The aisles are narrow enough that the no-stroller rule makes perfect sense but I... continued

Heavy on the jewelry, light on the gems. I was looking for large high quality unset gems but was disappointed. Juno Jewelers from San Francisco saved the day with their... continued

Overwhelming!!! I was not prepared for the number of exhibitors or the volume of attendees... it is happening again in August and I will definitely go and be prepared to make smart buying decisions.

There were a lot of great vendors! I wish the show came to the DC area more frequently with a location closer to DC itself. Not sure if the prices are any lower than in regular stores.

The show is always enjoyable. The only complaint that I have is the parking. There is no one to direct you to an area that has some spaces. It is annoying, but of course I was able to park.
