Jewelry Television and JTV.com buyers travel the earth to get the best deals on the most beautiful gems, and we pass the savings on to you, selling beautiful gemstones and jewelry for a fraction of the price you will see anywhere else. We leave ‘no stone unturned’ in our quest for some of the most exotic and fabulous gems and minerals that Mother Nature has created! This global trek is known as the JTV World Tour and it begins on February 3, 2011 with the JTV Gem Expo right here at JTV's Knoxville, Tennessee headquarters. But you don't have to wait until then to get in on amazing gemstone and jewelry deals. Join us all weekend long for special pricing and Sneak Peeks into JTV's World Tour!
What exactly is JTV's Gem Expo? This is when we invite vendors to stop at JTV headquarters to show us their wares before heading off to the Tucson Gem Shows in Tucson, Arizona. This special event is possible because our buyers have spent decades building strong relationships with our suppliers, and they are happy to give us first chance at purchasing their finest gemstones and jewelry before they set up shop at the ‘big show’. We pick the best gems for you at the best prices and will have some of them available for you before the Tucson show even begins!
If you’ve watched Jewelry Television or shopped JTV.com for any amount of time, you are no doubt familiar with “Tucson”, the abbreviated name we use for the largest gem show in the United States. In case you’re new to the JTV blog family, let us explain a little more about Tucson. Every February this event (more officially known as the Tucson Gem Fair or Tucson Gem Show) commands the attention of the gemstone, jewelry, beading and jewelry making, mineral specimen and gemstone gifts and collectibles worlds. Vendors and buyers from around the globe make their way to Arizona for this ‘can’t miss’ event, keeping their ears to the ground for news on the latest discoveries, the best buys and what their competitors are doing.
