One of my most favorite thing is the new format of the Tucson EZ-Guide: 

A unique new engagement ring from Lord at the JCK Show:

This flirty earring featuring brushed metal as the gem from Sophia By Design:

The fabulous woman owned and operated Porini Gems:

Alishan never disappoints...loved his mask like pendants:

I always look forward to the latest beasties from ZORAB:

Over at the To Bead True Blue Show - Hot Cakes ROCKED!

I loved the glittery necklaces from Firefly Designs:

The raw gems of Jewelry by Kia:

...and these crazy man-made beads that seemed to have a light within!

In the big tent - GJX - Jefferey Bergman had these amazing sapphires along with his incredible collection of Trapiche Sapphire:

Rob Lowe had gorgeous bi-color and watermelon Tourmaline:

I shared a table with a woman who through this gem to me and asked if I knew what it was (FYI - it was the size of my thumb!): 

At AGTA my first stop is always PrimaGemsUSA:
