I always go to the show if I am in town. This time it was OK, but not a lot of new designs and conteporary staff. I liked the one I usually buy from, Dizeo Silver, and I found another vendor but don't have his card with me.

Had a wonderful time. We found some real bargains on quality jewelry. Our experience was a good one. I presented my ticket confirmation at the window.. got our tickets....no hassles.

Paid the $3.00 processing fee for nothing. Can I get a refund? I got in free.

The Gem Show typically comes twice a year. The Hall at Reliant Energy is full of vendors who actually sale jewelry, purses, belts, etc. along with vendors that sale strings of beads and other jewelry making materials.

This event was ok. Everything was just too expensive. Prices have gone higher since the last event i attended in 2007. I wouldnt go again if i dont save money for this event.

A lot of vendors from across the country were on hand. Very good deals were there to be had, especially toward closing time on Sunday!!

Beyond disappointed - not any gems, raw stones, crystals - mostly diamond or other pre made jewelry, with better prices at any jewelry district - some vendors were so overpriced for beads for jewelry makers. I will never go again to this show.

While there were a fair amount of higher-end jewelry vendors, the majority of the vendors offered the same pickings as you'd find at the jewelry booths situated in the middle of the mall. Some of the booths just offered flea-market quality watches...continued

Disappointed that the show did not have as many booths in the retail side as the Spring tour. The wholesale side seemed to be much larger. Hopefully the Fall show will have more vendors with bargains for Christmas gifts. Goldstar service...continued

i enjoy the selections and variances of prices. The only gemstone , I did not see, but easily could have been overlooked with all the vendors, was Larimar. I wish they had seating areas at the end of every other aisle. Walking

Interesting show to check out and see what was there. I figured there would be lots of booths selling all different kinds of beads, but there was a lot of the same stuff or already made jewelry booths. Some of the prices seemed good, but I felt I...continued

Selection of afforable beads and findings were good.
I am a novice and would have been more comfortable buying American-made components.
Some seating midway through aisles would be nice.

Very disappointed.
I had attended these shows several years ago, and was looking forward to a similar experience. There was no "exhibits" like in years past, was just like going to a jewelry mall except at Reliant Center you had to walk the...continued

I really enjoyed this event. There was a variety of vendors and jewelry to appeal to all interests and budgets. The one thing that was a little confusing to me was that when I went to the Will Call desk and told them I was picking up tickets,...continued

If you're interested at all in jewelry or bead work, or pretty gems, the show is fantastic. Ranging from cheap $1.00 "fashion accessories" to the much nicer (and pricier) gold and silver jewelry, there's plenty to look at and lots to browse.
