Whether you’re a DIYer or a serious buyer, the Show has something for everyone.
Here’s the top seven reasons why you should visit the Show!
#7 High quality gemstones, cabochons and raw materials
Are you a jewelry designer? Designers from all around the world come to JOGS to pick up high quality gemstones, cabochons and raw materials for their work. The best part is many of our vendors and international exhibitors are direct source – that means there’s no middleman, and you can buy directly from gemstone dealers, manufacturers and mine owners. You’ll be able to meet and talk to internationl gemstone dealers from Thailand, India, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Columbia, Africa, Russia, China and more. There’s also 200+ jewelery making classes and seminars you can sign up for, including metalwork, wire wrapping, and even beginner’s classes where you can learn how to make jewelry right at the Show!
A tradition of beautiful craftsmanship and handmade silver can be found at the JOGS Show’s Indonesian Pavilion, where large direct manufacturers of Bali Silver showcase their newest products. Bali Silver is a hot seller in the United States, Canada and Mexico due to its price point, quality and organic and freeform designs, and a large selection can be found at the JOGS Show.
Tucson is well known for its Southwest culture, and the JOGS Show has an amazing amount of Turquoise and Southwestern Jewelry. If you’re looking for handmade Native American jewelry, the show has everything from traditional cuff bracelets to Squash Blossom Necklaces. Designers and lapidaries will also be in for a treat when it comes to turquoise – the Show carries the best quality and best priced turquoise from local Arizona and Nevada mines, Mexican, and Persian turquoise. At the JOGS Show we saw Sleeping Beauty, vintage Bisbee, Blackweb, Number Eight and Burtis Blue and many others.
JOGS is known even better for its International Amber Pavilion – an entire section of the show dedicated to amber jewelry. Every year a large group of exhibitors from Poland, Russia and Lithuania bring the “bread and butter” of the amber world to the Show in the form of amber jewelry, carvings, beads, cabs and rough. Elsewhere in the show you can also find Triple A Blue Sumatra Amber, Mexican Chiapas Amber and amber from the Dominican Republic. Amber is considered a perfect product to carry due to its natural origins, and healing and protective properties. There’s no better place to find the newest amber designs and best priced amber materials.
During the Tucson Gem Show many visitors come to the JOGS Show looking for unique designs for their shops, jewelry stores and catalogues… and the Show has an incredible variety of designer jewelry. Our international designers bring their unique jewelry designs from all over the world to the Show, from Europe to South America.

There’s more than just jewelry and gemstones at the JOGS Tucson Show – there’s also an amazing amount of interior and home decor made from gems and stone. Vendors bring incredible works made from gemstones, including counter tops, tiles, bathtubs, vases, carvings, fountains and so much more.
The #1 reason to visit the JOGS Tucson Gem & Jewelry show is the sheer variety of products available during the Show.

Wyoming Jade at JOGS Tucson Show: The Best in the World
Recently at the JOGS TUCSON WINTER SHOW 2013, Sean Jordan brought out beautiful Wyoming Jade, considered the best in the world. Wyoming Jade was heavily mined between 1940-60 in the Granite mountains in Wyoming. Since Jade does not naturally occur in Wyoming, it has been found in deposits around the Granite mountains classifying it as a nephrite Jade. Which is a stone so close to Jade that it is basically the same thing, the only way to tell is through tests such as x-ray or chemical. This beautiful stone ranges from opaque to translucent and comes in many shades of green as well as black and white. This stone can go for $2-$75 or more a pound depending on the stone. Many places sell imitations and real ones are sold at very high prices. Come to JOGS Tucson Gen and Jewelry Show for the best prices on Wyoming Jade.
10 ways to significantly improve returns at trade shows
Set daily leads and goals- Make sure your staff and your self have a daily goal for how many leads all of you want to acquire. Stress the importance of achieving this goal along with maybe giving prizes to those who go above and beyond.
Increase focus and pre-show and show events/promotions- Instead of giving gifts to everyone, let it be known that a special gift will be given to special customers. Those customers will come and spend time with you and will remember your booth among others at the show.
Gather only specific information- Find out specific information about your customers business tactics, such as who they cater to and where they are located. Include these details into the conversation to help you separate your hot/cold leads.
Make yourself interesting- Use different elements to make your booth look interesting and appealing to customers.
Show interest in customers- Start a quick conversation and ask questions before offering your product.
Make sure your trade show skills are on point- Memorize prices and product details along with proper approaches. Practice this with your team to build muscle memory.
Make sure your graphics are original and interesting- Everyone knows you’re selling jewelry, try to spice it up with something a little bit more interesting to make consumers draw you out from the rest. Also, put quick bullet points on your graphics as trade show attendees are known for there quick glances.
Keep up your appearance- Greet guests kindly, smile, walk around. Never let yourself or your staff sit down at trade shows. It will be very tiring at times but when you see your sales rise, you will see how worth it it is.
Keep track of Data- Bring tools with you that can be used to keep track of the data collected at the show. This data will be vital for you in making your next business move(s).
Do not loose your leads!- Keep track of your leads throughout the day. If you don’t have time throughout the day, then do it at night. All those interactions and faces can easily be forgotten with the constant heat of a trade show. The last thing you want to do is loose them.
The World Diamond Council Board felt it was time to elect new leaders to guide it in the right direction.
