I'm bummed this is the last time the gem show will be at Santa Monica Civic Center. I don't think nearly as many people will make the trek downtown or to Pasadena. But overall, a fun way to spend a few hours and pick up some unusual pieces to...continued

It's a great show for those who love all types of jewelry- from beads to diamonds. A lot of pieces are priced well- much better than buying it at retail.

I had another engagement so I didn't have enough time. It would have helped had there been a map showing where things were. They seemed to be slightly organized by type.

This was more than a fun event, it was, as I saw it, well run and there were bargains to be had and we, happily, found some outstanding ones.
The layout was easily maneuvered, the displays were set up well and the merchants were, for the most...continued

I enjoyed the show very much. Lots of selections: the real deal= diamonds etc., beads, supplies, lots of help and great choices.

The only thing I did not like is the charge for parking $7.00 or to find street parking.

This was a massive jewelry show at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. In addition to the auditorium having displays in every room, there were two large tents with displays as well. My friend and I spent two hours and didn't see but half of what...continued

This was my first Gem and Jewelry Show. I was amazed at how many vendors were there. Unfortunately, I only had an hour and a 1/2 long lunch break to try and see all the offerings. WOW! I was a bit overhelmed at all the types of gems and stones. I...continued

This was my first time, so I had no expectations. I found the show to be mostly unfinished strands of beads and stones, loose beads/stones, and high priced gold and gem jewelry. There were also some booths of cheaper fun jewelry, but not as many...continued

Alot of merchandise to sort through but sometimes well worth the effort to find the unusual gem. Fun afternoon!

I felt there was too much finished jewelry. I would have liked jewelry bead artists like at Tucson.

I felt there was far too many vendors selling finished jewelry and not enough "beads". Bead artists would be a great addition.

If you want to pay retail then this is your event. There was more finished jewelry than beads and findings.
