Loved it. I will never buy retail jewelry again. Everything from low end costume jewelry to super high end gems and diamonds.

My friend and I attended and we had a great time. There were several people that had very unique gems that you wouldn't find at your local bead store. We also bought scarves and hair accessories...an unexpected find.

There were a lot of vendors; I mean a lot. It was kind of overwhelming at first. But as I continued walking through all of the boothes I became more and more underwhelmed. It seemed like all of the vendors were selling the same stuff.

Exteremely "dangerous" place for women in particular. ;)
The whole show is an eye-candy. You may buy jewelry for 10k-1M, but you can also browse in less expensive areas where crystal, fresh-water pearls, and findings (the parts to put together...continued
