Big show--many vendors. Consists more of supplies for those who make jewelry than of end-products for the consumer. But there's still lots to choose from. Parking can... continued

Great show. Many booths with various types of jewelery from high end to costume.
Was very crowed. If you don't like crowds this show is not for you. Parking was difficult.

1). Fun as usual, but I've never seen empty stalls before--tables with no vendors and no merchandise--quite a few of them!
2) not nearly enough handicapped parking... continued

I can see this being of interest to people who are all set to buy jewelry at good deals; I personally went to be inspired by innovative, inspiring, and creative concepts.... continued

Very large exhibition, too much to appreciate in a couple of hours. Nice people, but hard to figure out where to spend time.

Always a great time. Great buys, and a great opportunity to get cash for jewelry I no longer want or need, and to get jewelry repaired or reworked.

A bit disappointing. I thought there would be more of a variety of fun jewelry but it was very heavy on beads and jewelry making tools etc. There were some gems and nicer jewelry but you had to look for it.

Great for jewelry lovers. They even have other merchandise such as sheets and pashmina stoles and cashmere scarfs. Lots of beads. Critically, you can get dizzy looking at all the offerings. It is way too much!

It was a very enjoyable day. Some very beautiful items for sale. So much to see that we only covered about 2/3 of the show. When we arrived at 11 AM, the parking lot was... continued

There was a large selection of jewlery as well as unset stones to purchase. For the DIY crowd, there was an area selling supplies.
In addition to new and estate jewlery, one could purchase scarves, purses, hair ornaments, and much more.

I thought it was good but I also think they could re-name it to be called the Gem, Jewelry and Beading Show. There were too many rows of just beads, which is great, if... continued

I thought the event was interesting and seemed like a great venue for those into beading or jewelry making. I did not see many spectacular savings on regular jewelry. I'm glad I was able to get discount tickets through Goldstar!!

I'll have to get into the art of beading before the next show! So much to choose from. But I wished there was more gold jewelry on sale. I couldn't find a ring I was looking for.

I don't really know jewelry or gems but I found the prices to be either outrageously expensive or cheap stuff from China.
