It was overwhelming. I wish I had more money to buy all the deals and beautiful gems they had. I will be at the next one. Cris W.

Jewelry show - retail and wholesale sales. It was overwhelming at times, but had all types of jewelry to purchase.

Lots of loose gems, beads, etc for those of you who make jewelry. Was fun to walk around and look but no real huge bargains. Only a few truly unique items. $13 to park + $3 tickets (Goldstar) . "Wholesaler" area off limits to public.

Loved the event, although had there been a small wine bar, I probably would have spent more money there....

Most venders were not very friendly or helpful but there was some very nice stuff in all price categories.

Overall it fulfilled my expectations as my fiancé and I were able to purchase our wedding bands; but the selection of true jewelers versus costume jewelry was less than I expected to see.

Overall, the event was great. I had not been to this event in quite a few years, so I was a bit disappointed that the wares available were more for high-end jewelers or jewelry makers. There were so many vendors selling loose beads and...continued

Parking was $13. The show is not as good as it used to be . Mostly for people who make jewelry. I wouldn't have felt comfortable buying something expensive as I don't know enough about stones and jewelry. I bought some Swarovski knock offs . Will...continued

Since this was the first one I had been to, I was very impressed. If someone was looking for a particular piece of jewelry and couldnt find it there, then they weren't looking hard enough. The selection was spectacular ...

Some of the vendors were nicer than others. It seemed well-organized overall.
