Every year — end of May and first of June — Las Vegas hosts one of the world's largest array of jewelry shows during what is known in the industry as simply "Jewelry Week." Anchored by the gargantuan JCK Las Vegas, AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas and the exclusive, invitation only LUXURY by JCK — which encompasses the entire 1,000,000 square feet of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center — six other gem, jewelry and jewelry-art shows splashed along Las Vegas Boulevard (“The Strip”) present nearly 4,000 vendors displaying and selling their jewelry and gem treasures. The Couture Show at The Wynn is a luxurious display of one-of-a-kind designer jewels; GLDA Las Vegas at The Mirage; and the International Watch & Jewelry Guild Show at The Tropicana. Two shows — the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show and ACRE™ Las Vegas — are changing venues this year, both moving to the Las Vegas Convention Center. A third show, The Jewellery Box (new in 2017), will be held at the LVCC as well. Keep in mind that none of these shows are “open to the public” but to the trade only. Proper ID is required, and registration requirements vary for each show.
