More than 5000 buyers fled to Tucson for the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) GemFair this year to see what one of the industry’s most popular shows had to offer and it appears the trend favouring coloured gemstones isn’t going anywhere.
Each February like clockwork, the faithful and the curious make their way to Tucson, Ariz., for the American Gem Trade Association’s (AGTA’s) GemFair and other shows to seek out new stones and jewellery.
Every Tucson GemFair develops its distinct persona, evolving from a fusion of economics, supply, new finds, and a marketing behemoth that fuels demand. This year was no different, with exhibitors characterizing the mood as upbeat and confident, and retailers looking to pick up old favourites and lesser-knowns alike.
