Brentney Hamilton Recommends
If your eyes glitter at the sight of rubies, sapphires and diamonds, this three-day, direct-to-consumer shopping experience is for you. The “largest exhibition of gems, minerals and jewelry in the world,” the convention produces shows in more than 35 U.S. cities each year. Shop for gemstones, pearls, engagement rings, and watches in a “competitive atmosphere [that] drives prices to rock-bottom levels,” organizers say. Those interested in creating their own designs can take in a hands-on beading workshop and shop for accessories and professional cleaning kits.
Admission is $6 online / $8 at the door. Free admission for teachers, military members and their family.
