AGTA GemFair

Perhaps the largest and most colorful gathering of jewels and jewelers in the world occurs every year at the American Gem Trade Association's GemFair in Tucson, Arizona.

Every year tens of thousands of attendees travel across the globe to buy and sell precious gemstones in every hue, tone and saturation.  It is, in fact, the largest trade show in the world specializing in semi-precious stones.

Rarer gemstones such as Black Opal from Australia, fine Aquamarine and Tourmaline from Brazil, and the highest quality pearls and jade from Asia are among the most coveted items up for sale.  However, gemstones are not the only draw.  This year, for example, new CAD design and 3-D printing technologies are on display.

This year, buyers are actually able to purchase a fine gem, create a custom CAD design for the gem, and have a 3-D model of the design printed for them to take home ALL IN THE SAME DAY!

In this way, the AGTA Tucson show is not only a great resource to buy/sell gemstones, but an opportunity to try out the latest and greatest in design technology and see if it makes sense for your business!

Our website does not exactly offer the level of custom design that is available at GemFair, however you CAN build your own custom engagement ring and have it shipped directly to your house.  Try it here!
