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.

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.

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.

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.

This was a small-ish gem and jewelry show....very heavy on the jewelry, very light on the gem part.

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.

I don't know what the person just below me saw, this is the usual gem and mineral show. In the tent there were lots of crystals. There are lots of strings of mid priced stones to make into jewelery, which is what I wanted, also some beautiful...continued

I had not been to the Santa Monica Gem Show in a few years and I must say I was disappointed this year. I took four other people with me, telling them all they could find. We didn't find even half of what I used to be able to get in the past. ...continued

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.

I have attended this venue in the past and always rated it second to the one at the convention center. I have changed my mind. It has so many wonderful booths and different assortment of jewelry, from reasonable to expensive, without the hassle of...continued

It's not my first show, I attended one in NYC some years ago and one in Florence, italy. Santa Monica's was not organized as well as others and selection was not as great. But still - it really is like a kid in a candy store! Some goregeous stuff...continued

Really great show, the options and the prices were amazing. I haven't gone to all the stands, but there are diamonds and complete jewelry available as well as strings and "raw" materials for those who know what to do and how to make jewelry.

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.

What I thought would be a Gem and Jewelry Show was more of a beads and make-it-yourself convention. Was expecting more artisan or even any kind of "finished" jewelry - lots of junk - millions of beads and stones strung on fishing wire for sale. ...continued

You can really find some good deals here and getting your ticket from Goldstar beats paying full price.
