Hey all, I have a few questions regarding the gem shows in Tucson.
I would like to get into the big, wholesale gem shows to do a
little buying and a lot of admiring. I remember from last year that
I need my resale # and a bunch of invoices… any specifics on
this? Will my invoices from Rio and a few gem wholesalers be
enough? If not, any tips on how to con my way in? If the req’s
vary from show to show a source for specific would be much
Which shows are your favorites for seeing all kinds of beautiful
gems? I seem to remember that most require pre-registration so I’d
like to know which shows are most worthwhile.
If you could only be in Tucson for one day when would you choose
Can I bring my wife and a friend to the wholesale shows, or is
the registration only for me?
Where can i get one of those handy Gem Show Guides? I paid to
mail order one last year, then got to the show and they were
everywhere for free!
Thanks in advance for your help! Hopefully these questions will be
relevant to others as well.
I hope to make it to the Orchid dinner - sounds like fun! At only 4
hours away I have no excuse
My life as a Jewelry Artist (newly acquired title) has been forever
changed by the invaluable resource that Orchid is. Thanks and MUCH
respect to Hanuman and all who regularly post here!
