Jewelry Navigator’s Adventure at the 2019 Tucson Gem Show
Every year in February, thousands of rockhounds, jewelers, gemologists, and artists attend gem shows in Tucson.
Since its beginning, the show has grown to over 40 separate shows.
For jewelers and fine gemstone buyers, the shows are in venues, like the AGTA Gemfair, in the Tucson Convention Center.
Other shows are inside mazes of large white tents along roadsides, others take over complete hotels, using guest rooms as temporary shops.
It was an experience that surpassed my expectations, for sure!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this show, it’s a mecca for jewelers - both professional and hobbyists, and rock hounds.
It was a fantastic experience, and besides seeing gemstones I’ve only dreamed of, I also met and made new friends through Gem Legacy’s Launch on February 8, at the JW Marriott Resort Starr Pass.
