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 — 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. Other shows and where they’re held are Couture at The Wynn, ACRE™ Las Vegas at South Point Hotel, GLDA Las Vegas at The Mirage, the International Watch & Jewelry Guild Show at The Tropicana, the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show at The Paris, and AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas is also held at Mandalay Bay. 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.
