FREE International Gem & Jewelry Shows

Jewelry fanatics and jewelry makers can get FREE admission to the popular Intergem shows by clicking below on the show you want, then registering at Goldstar. Founded four decades ago, International Gem & Jewelry Shows were one of the first to sell commercial jewelry to the public, with the broad selection and prices (from $5 to $500k) of a trade show.

More than 100 of these shows are held coast to coast each year, with exhibitors from across the U.S. as well as China, India, Africa, Australia, and Russia. If you don’t have a wholesale ID but want to shop a wide selection of gems, beads, jewelry and accessories, there’s probably one nearby. You can buy tickets for $6 through Intergem but certain shows are available free (with a $3 service fee) via Goldstar. Note: This deal has begun to sell out a week before each show, starting with Saturday admission – so book ahead if you can!
