Las Vegas Convention Center Hosts 2017 Event

The U.S. Antique Show’s annual Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will take place this year at a new location, the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) June 5-8, 2017, opening the same day as JCK. This trade-only event boasts nearly 400 world-renown vendors of antique, vintage and estate jewelry and watches representing a wide range of eras, from Renaissance to contemporary. With elegant signed pieces from famous names such as Cartier, Rolex, David Webb, Harry Winston and Van Clef & Arpels, the event is an annual destination for retailers on the hunt for hard-to-find pieces to offer their discerning clientele.

“We’re excited to make the Las Vegas Convention Center our new home for our show this year,” explains Dan Darby, Vice President of Emerald Expositions and General Manager of U.S. Antique Shows. “With the addition of several new exhibitors, we’ll have a greater breadth of merchandise than in years past; we’re confident our 21st year will be one of our best yet!”

As with all U.S. Antique Show events, the vendors exhibiting at the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show are the premier authorities in their fields, and as such, they spend ample time guiding retailers through their buying decisions. This foundation of knowledge has proved a valuable asset in retailers’ discussions with collectors of antique and estate jewelry and timepieces.

Three Emerald Expositions shows will be running concurrently in Las Vegas during Jewelry Market Week: ACRE, the premier wholesale craft exposition in North America, Jewellery Box, a new event for high-quality, on-trend jewelry at accessible price points, and The COUTURE Show, the leading U.S. authority for designer fine jewelry and luxury timepieces.

Gemmy Partnership - Columbia Gem House & Sapphires of Montana #TheDailyJewel

from a Press Release

Columbia Gem House 
and Sapphires of Montana Unite

Merger aims to increase production and availability of Montana Sapphires.

Representatives from Columbia Gem House and Sapphires of Montana announced today that the two companies have united resulting in “Sapphires of Montana by Columbia Gem House”.

Columbia Gem House is the industry leader in Fair Trade and responsibly sourced gemstones with mine to market traceability, and is the largest supplier of gemstones mined in America.  

As a vertically integrated company, Columbia Gem House also provides heating, cutting and US jewelry manufacturing to customers world-wide. 

Sapphires of Montana’s expertise lies in the branding, marketing and sale of Rock Creek Montana Sapphires. The merger has come about to increase the production and availability of Montana Sapphires under the successful brand, “Sapphires of Montana”.

Columbia Gem House, a family business, was founded by Eric Braunwart 40 years ago and is known as the largest supplier of brand name gemstones. For the past 15 years, the company has focused on producing Fair Trade gems with a transparent supply chain from mine to market. Of the merger Eric said, “It’s a natural fit to bring in additional strength in sapphires of a Montana origin in a market that is growing almost faster than we can keep up.”
 Owned and operated by women,  
Sapphires of Montana was founded by Lisa Brooks-Pike and Margo Bedman in 2012. After a successful sell-out show on QVC the company expanded its focus to supporting a clientele of young up-and-coming millennial and established independent designers. 

“Since Sapphires of Montana was modeled on the Fair Trade, mine to market principals of Columbia Gem House, uniting the brands is a positive next step,” says Lisa. 

“Our business ethics and ideals are in alignment,” says Margo, adding, “Merging the Sapphires of Montana brand with Columbia Gem House allows us to provide a sustainable supply of Montana Sapphires to the industry.”

In conjunction with the merger, Lisa Brooks-Pike, co-owner and VP of Sales and Marketing for Sapphires of Montana will continue with Columbia Gem House as Marketing Director. Clients are assured the same high level of customer service along with a larger selection and long term consistent supply of Montana Sapphires.

Columbia Gem House:
A family business founded in 1976 offering natural gemstones and jewelry handcrafted in the USA.
