Normally I would write this up in my Tucson Gem Show blog but this is something really exciting for the Jewelry & Gem Industries that you might have missed!
People ask why I make the annual trek to the Tucson desert - this video will explain everything!
BlueCap Productions has been filming What's Hot In Tucson for the last five years - prior to 2010 they only covered the Mineral shows. In 2010 they premiered the first What's Hot in Tucson - Gems & Jewelry!
One of the WHIT claims to fame is the level of the Hosts...Dave Wilbur and Bob Jones need no introduction in the Mineral field - their reputations are legend. BlueCap has chosen well for their Gems & Jewelry product. Hostess Delphine LeBlanc is lovely, knowledgeable and has the most exotic accent!
The AGTA GemFair is THE most exclusive show in Tucson and it is Trade only! This video offers you THE ONLY Insider's view of the show...the video below will show you some of the highlights of the 2011 show.
- the 104 carat Sugar Loaf cut Tanzanite from InterColor
- Pala International's amazing collection of Spinel
- pearls of every kind from American Pearl Company
- Gem Treatment updates from the American Gemological Laboratories
- a conversation with Todd Reed on raw diamonds
- and a wonderful conversation with Jeffrey Bilgore on how he designs (this is worth the price of the video alone!)
Speaking of the price of the video - BlueCap Productions is offering a special 15% off the price of your total purchase from now until Sept. 12, 2011!

When you hear that the VMA's are coming you can almost hear the high heeled stampede of Fashion & Jewelry reporters rushing to cover the stunning and the bizarre. This show is never a let down in either category!
From the radiant Beyonce (with a special announcement) who dazzled in Lorraine Schwartz:
To the amazing British Songstress Adele in Platinum & Diamond Earrings from Harry Winston - if you haven't heard her before take a minute to listen below:
The artist that struck the happy medium for me was Katy Perry - her Red Carpet look was a little Naughty and a little Nice - her Atelier Versace dress and Jimmy Choo shoes are exactly what I expect from the VMA's!
While I LOVE her Lorraine Schwartz jewels - I would have liked something a little more over the top like the dress...maybe some crazy yellow diamond or sapphire chandelier earrings or pink sapphire bracelets...just a little more!
...and on to the bizarre...Nicki Minaj - Lady GaGa (what a surprise) and two of Katy Perry's Costume Changes (the Tom Ford gown was lovely - but seriously Katy?):
