I took a friend as part of her birthday present. We never expected to see as much as there was to see. The convention hall was covered from wall to wall with gems, gem stones, beads. We did not know that there would be a jewelry repair section. We...continued

I went for the loose beads. Most of the vendors had the same things with some variance in shape or size. Still, I found some nice quality items at fair to high prices. There were two vendors with an outstanding selection of unusual items.

If you have your own business or if you are simply a lover of jewelry, this is not an event you want to miss. I have been to this many times and cannot wait to go back again each time. They have lots of booths with fine jewelry as well as costume...continued

It was a show that was worth attending. If you love jewelry and make your own jewelry then you really need to attend. Not only ready made jewelry but beads for making jewelry. However, the booths were way too close together. In some cases there...continued

Lots of variety. Good buys. My mom, my husband and I went back the second day since there was so much to see. So many beautiful jewelry to choose from. We can't wait to go back in August. We had such a fun time. Next time, we will bring the kids...continued

The show was small in a huge venue. The layout was awful when they had enough space to make it simple. Hardly any stone and mineral dealers. We had to valet park since parking is a real pain. The cost of valet was ok, but I don't know how the...continued

This event is great for everyone. It's especially good for those folks that make their own jewelry. It's also good for those who wish to purchase jewelry at a lower cost. There is lots to pick from. It's good for those who just love to look at all...continued

This is always a fun event. This timne I brought my kids and they loved it. This is a place where they can buy jewelry without breaking my pocket. There is just so much variety and styles to choose from and some are very inexpensive.

I always love the Gem Show, and with Goldstar offering FREE tickets (just paying the fee of $3), it makes the Gem Show even better and leaves me with a couple extra bucks to spend on fun stuff!

I like this show, expecially in December when I buy all the holiday gifts within one day! This year the show was really great!

I've used this offer before. Same entry, just less $$ through Goldstar. You would be foolish not to take advantage of this site for future venues. So many things to do and see!

It was enjoyable to go around with my girlfriend and look at lovely things The most impressive object was a blue sapphire perfume bottle. Most of the Jewelry stands had "Junk" costume jewlery which was not interesting to me or my friend. There was...continued

It was just okay, nothing special. I can't really complain since the ticket was free but parking cost $13. I did buy a scarf for $2 that I saw in another store today for $12. And my Mother bought some cashmere scarves for $3 each and three...continued

It was my first time at this show, so I had nothing to compare it to; however, my friend said it was much smaller than in past years. I was able to purchase what I came for, and a few other things, so it was a success for me. Next year, hold it...continued

It was okay..... I did purchase some good pieces, but a lot of it was over priced. A lot of walking, didn't bother me though. Also, bring a roller bag if you plan to purchase a lot. There was more than just jewelry also. I found a very unique,...continued
