Sparkle & Shine at the International Gem and Jewelry Show Reviews & Ratings
Many of the vendors that I liked that sold items at the show in the past are no longer there. I won't be attending any more shows in the future.report as inappropriate
Always a good time shopping for pieces to embellish, repair and create jewelry. So much to see and a great chance to do holiday shopping. Looking forward to May 2016report as inappropriate
Always enjoy seeing the wide variety of jewelry. For the jewelry artist or collector threre is lots to see. Come with a plan or you could be overwhelmed. Precious gems as well as costume, it's all covered.report as inappropriate
I attended the Gem Expo for the second year, May 23, 2009. This year I took my daughter and granddaughter. They bought earrings and rings. I bought crystals, a chain with findings and two handcrafted pendants. I loved the Expo and they did, too.report as inappropriate
I enjoy that they have vendors that repair as well sell jewelry. Great to find things to add to other pieces to embellish and create. I enjoy the variety of things offered.report as inappropriate

I went alone. There was so much to see...almost too much. But, I had gone to one of these before. I spent 2 hours there and enjoyed browsing. I did buy a few pieces.report as inappropriate

Made a fair amount of purchases; resale and personal buys of bead and findings.
Happy Chicago has a show, though I felt there should be more bead and findings, especially gold filled, quality gems and more unusual selectionsreport as inappropriate
The place is huge. Wear comfortable shoes and plan on a lot of walking. The garage ($13) has a free shuttle to the door.
The blue line el stop of Rosemont is a two-three block walk.
This was super overwhelming! So much jewelry and gems!!report as inappropriate
