The International Gem & Jewelry Show, the longest-running jewelry show in the US, is back after its successful run in summer this year. This unique exhibition is set to bring back jewelry manufacturers, wholesalers, and jewelry designers under one roof. You can simply skip the middleman, get your hands on the latest stunning jewelry trends, and shop the diverse collection directly from the vendors. Exhibitors are all set to display their unique designs at the Royal Plaza Trade Center, Marlborough.
No matter what kind of jewelry or engagement rings you are looking for, minimalistic, Swarovski, pearls, casual fashion jewelry, or bridal jewelry, the International Gem & Jewelry Show 2021 has you covered.
InterGem, the organization behind the show, has been long known for producing more than 60 successful shows across the country. In the past as well, InterGem has managed to put together successful shows exhibiting the best of gems, jewelry, and minerals around the globe at various conventions.
1967 saw the birth of the International Gem & 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 International Gem & Jewelry Show 2021, 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 also in the world.
