GJX premiered in 1994 with only 35 booths and became the fastest-growing gem show in Tucson’s gem show history. GJX now boasts nearly 700 booths of U.S. and international wholesale dealers of diamonds, colored gemstones, pearls, fine jewelry, fashion jewelry, gem carvings, findings, and lapidary equipment. GJX is held in a 120,000 square foot ultra-structure that is fully carpeted and climate-controlled.
We offer the same amenities found in many of the shows held in permanent facilities, such as a food court, coffee bar, and fax and copy service, along with helpful, friendly staff. We also offer spacious aisles for the convenience of our buyers. Armed, off-duty Tucson Police personnel are on-site 24-hours a day.
There are currently over 40 independently owned and operated shows held almost simultaneously during the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase, with over 3,000 exhibitors citywide. GJX is a “wholesale-to-the-trade-only” show and limited to finished gemstones, jewelry, gem carvings, and/or related lapidary equipment and packaging.
