Review from Stacey O

Disappointing. I expected row after row of loose gemstones and a wide range of jewelry in every price range. Instead, I saw mostly beads, extremely cheap mass-produced jewelry (much of it costume), and some stuff that had nothing to do with...continued

Review from DIANE

Excellent event. Many vendors to choose from...... costume jewelry, jade items, sterling silver and gold jewelry, jewelry cleaner, bags, scarves, etc. Spent the whole day there and it seemed like I still had so much more to see and not much time...continued

Exteremely "dangerous" place for women in particular. ;)
The whole show is an eye-candy. You may buy jewelry for 10k-1M, but you can also browse in less expensive areas where crystal, fresh-water pearls, and findings (the parts to put together...continued

Good show but seemed a little less organized than in the past. I recall from the past a section that just had $2, $3 and $4 strands of beads. Would have loved to see that again.

Review from Out On The Town

Good Show, about the same as previous ones.

Parking at the Santa Monica Civic Center was $9.00--
waaaaay too expensive for this kind of event.
One of the parking attendants told me the CC had raised prices for this
special event.

I make jewelry with my daughter and we regularly go to this show...usually find what we are looking for. Can be overwhelming if you don't know the vendors. Have to shop around..not all prices are good deals.

Review from Renee Featherstone

I've been to several gem & jewelry shows and this is a good one. It can be a bit overwhelming because there is so much merchandise. However, I would recommed it.

It was a celebration of colors and shapes. I went there with a plan and a budget and suceeded. Got what I needed, touched and looked at everything. Just prior to leaving, I found a special table with hand made sterling silver findings. I've been...continued

It was great! ! Every vendor should have a website to buy online if we need merchandise before the next show! I wish the show will continue in Santa Monica instead of Pasadena!

It's just amazing! Aisles of semi-precious and precious stones and jewelry of every design and price. Great prices on everything from costume jewelry to the exquisite.

Review from T. Tang

Lots and lots of beads and jewelry but better suited for jewelry makers and those having a specific idea in mind of what they want. Park offsite and save yourself the $8 parking lot.

Loved the event, the vendors were great and easy to deal with. Wish I had more money to spend....my only regret! Plan to do it again in December.

Many vendors to choose from. They had beads and findings, costume jewelry, diamonds, pearls,jewelry cleaner, bags, etc. Should bring cash on hand to get better deals. Food stand available but the choices are not great and a bit pricey. Brown bag...continued

Review from Shopping Artist

Many vendors, many customers/browsers, and probably a lot of sales for reasonable vendors.
I went on Sunday, the last day, so several bargains were available as the event drew to a close, but still some vendors didn't want to bargain at...continued
