We know, it is usually pretty glimmery over there, what with the Pacific Ocean and all, but when this traveling gem-a-thon, which is laden with shiny goodies and rings and necklaces and stones of every stripe, arrives in town, that glimmer goes through the roof.
What to expect: three days of bauble-based browsing at some 380 booths. There will be unset stones as well as complete pieces ready to go. And at all kinds of price points, too, not just once-in-a-lifetime purchases.
$5 is mentioned on the site as being near the lower end.
The show runs from December 4th through 6th, and the price for all three days is $8 (there's an online coupon for two bucks off, too). Did we mention the estate jewelry? Pieces with stories and character.
Okay. 380 booths. Three days. Following glimmer westward...
