M. Flynn Road Trip: Tucson Gem Show

February 10, 2017

If there was ever such a thing as a gemstone heaven, it's definitely Tucson in February.

We took our first trip to the Gem Shows in Tucson last week and we thought we would share just how amazing the experience was. There were sparkling gemstones everywhere we looked.  It was a magical jewelry heaven. Take a look at a few photos that we took to capture the essence of the show.

Incredible colored sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds for miles

This was one of our favorite Estate jewelry dealers.  Incredible selections from the most exquisite makers – including Cartier, Bulgari and Van Cleef and Buccellati.

Real or Fake?

Scenes from the tents outside:

Although having all of the world’s exclusive fine diamond and gemstone vendors together was a highlight, we also loved exploring outside of the shows.

One of the best parts of the trip was going to the “tents” outside of the shows.  You can find hundreds of vendors selling things that we never even knew existed.
