…pet the pretty things…

Every so often the gem show comes to town…or we go to it…depending on the time of year. There is usually a sea of color that will make your head spin. And of course being a girl…I love shiny things. So you can only imagine how heavenly it is.

The biggest gem show in the world is held every February in Tucson, Arizona…and gem & stone dealers from over the world literally descend on this desert town.

People leave with pallets of stones to be shipped back to their stores and design studios. It truly is a rare and precarious event as sometimes fights break out over a rare string of stones. We love it because we find rare and special cuts that we use in our limited edition pieces that we carry in our store…and also inspiration for any new upcoming collections.

Just a tiny glance into my world. Hope you enjoyed the trip.
