Last month I made my annual pilgrimage to the Tucson Gem Show in Arizona. To call it a show is really understatement; it's an experience! It's not just one show in Tucson, but rather dozens of shows popping up all over the entire city. You find everything from flawless diamonds, rubies and sapphires at the fancy convention center to piles of raw, uncut gems, minerals and fossils in makeshift showrooms in hotel rooms. People from all around the world gather in the dessert with one common factor - a love for gemstones!
This is a trip I look forward to every year. To find inspiration, connect with friends, and of course discover amazing stones. It was so nice to get a little break from the city, rest and recharge (no offense to my two little kids - I love them with all my being but it was great to sleep in!) Hope you enjoy taking a look at my treasure hunt, and I hope you get a chance today to take a moment for yourself.
With love & gratitude,
