It was either very high end jewelry or low. Nothing in between.

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

There were a lot of various vendors for participants; however, I had my prepared list and got what I needed first. Afterwards, I visited the other vendors! Do what you need to do first; then go to other vendors!!

This show was mostly bead dealers from china and india, kind of like a bazaar in a foreign country rather than a fine gem and jewelry show. As a person who beads that's fine but not what we expected at this show. We only went down about four...continued

I love the gem and jewelry show. There is something for everyone. I got some great hair clips with lots of bling for $6 but there were also some high end beautifully hand made jewelry. There is just such a wonderful variety. I went with two...continued

The show was ok this time. A lot of weird vendors there this time, selling windows, makeup, sheets, etc. Some of the normal vendors that are there were missing this time, kinda disappointed about that.

This is a big show and seems to have jewelry at every price point, so it was a fun way to spend a winter day. Definitely a good price thru Goldstar.

This was far better than I even thought it would be. I don't make jewelry, but thought the majority of people there were there for the beads, gems and articles for making jewelry. There was so much to see of every type of jewelry from very...continued
