International Gem and Jewelry Show in Santa Monica Reviews & Ratings
Insufficient a/c and drinks for very hot weekend mostly in a tent. Lots of junk to wade through and some overpriced vendors, but interesting and a lot of choice. Not as much fine jewelry as in previous years.report as inappropriate
Loved it, as usual. Always promising myself I won't get more stuff, but prices are so enticing and the selections so varied that I end up with more.report as inappropriate
so much cool stuff there. just fascinating.report as inappropriate
This show has a large number of bead vendors. There are fewer purveyors of gems and gem jewelry than I would have expected. Subject to those qualifications, it was worthwhile.report as inappropriate
This was a jewelry show with something for everyone. They had all different price ranges of jewelry. They also had a good balance of vendors that sold items for those that make their own jewelry and for those that want to buy already made jewelry.report as inappropriate
This was a small-ish gem and jewelry show....very heavy on the jewelry, very light on the gem part.report as inappropriate
ehh it was ok, not all vendors were there, it has changed a lot since it was in Santa Monica Civic Auditorium...report as inappropriate
Great fun. Lots of good, fairly priced vendors. A wonderful annual event if you make or love beautiful jewelry.report as inappropriate

Have only been to 2 other similar shows. While this one was large it was not particularly varied or interesting. Many dealers had similar items. I was slightly disappointed and left after an hour.report as inappropriate
I have been attending this show for years. This year several of my favorite vendors were not here. That was disappointing. That being the case, there was still a lot to look at and a lot of good deals.report as inappropriate
There is a wide array of vendors here. Great for the jewelry makers and the jewelry collectors. It's good to haggle with some vendors, whereas, others are tough to get a good deal from. A good place to spend a few hours.report as inappropriate
Too crowded!! I was not in the market to buy anything,just curious.
I probably won't attend in future.
You can really find some good deals here and getting your ticket from Goldstar beats paying full price.report as inappropriate
