Basically a giant jewelry salesroom. There's everything from stuff for the do-it-yourself jewelry maker to really high end jewelry. I was expecting more in the way of 'crystals' and wasn't too thrilled about paying an entrance fee to 'shop'. It...continued

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 be a problem--get there before it opens and read a book in the car while...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.

I enjoyed this visit very much, I found some colored pearls that I truly love. They were very inexpensive and the color is great.

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 spaces and no one out there to enforce them
3) Vendors in wholesale section were...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. With that mentality, I found much of the items pretty conventional. There...continued

MANY jewelers and importers from around the country presented new and estate jewelry ranging from beads (glass, mineral, semi-precious) to strands of pearls, unique hand-made jewelry to loose diamonds, at every price range. It's overwhelming and...continued

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

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.

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.

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 almost completely full and we got a parking spot very far away behind the...continued

One of the best Gem and Jewelry show I attended. Great bargains. Got their early so I wouldn't have any parking challenges and a great opportunity to view all of the vendors items before making my purchases. Looking forward to future shows.

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!

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 you are into beading..but I thougnt it could have had less beads and more...continued

I attended the same show at the Timonium fair grounds earlier this year. This show was not as large and the building seemed overcrowded. Still, there were some good deals and beautiful pieces. This is a must for beaders and jewelery makers. I...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!!
