The International Gem and Jewelry Show, the longest-running jewelry show, is back again with a bang. The special exhibition is all set to bring manufacturers, wholesalers, and designers under one roof again, so you can skip the middlemen and shop the diverse collection directly from the vendors. The exhibitors are ready to display their unique collection at the Los Angeles Convention Center this year.
No matter what kind of jewelry you are looking for, minimalistic, bridal jewelry, or just a pair of casual brunch earrings, the Intergem exhibition has everything set for you!
InterGem, the organization behind the show, is known for producing over 60 shows in different US cities. InterGem, in the past, has successfully exhibited gems, jewelry, and minerals around the globe at various conventions.
The InterGem Jewelry Show was initially planned for March 26 to March 28. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, the show was postponed and will now be held between July 16 and July 18.
1967 saw the birth of the InterGem Jewelry show by Herbert A. Duke, Sr., who carefully built America’s first-ever direct-to-customers jewelry trade show. Herbert, an avid jewelry artist and gemologist, brought his love of handcrafted jewelry, minerals, and gemstones to the masses. With the InterGem Jewelry Show, people can directly buy from wholesalers, designers, and manufacturers in an exhibition-like marketplace setting. InterGem today is over 50 years old and has stood the test of time to become the longest-running jewelry show, not just in the USA but in the world.
