What is Las Vegas Jewelry Week and why was I there? I bet you were wondering what in the world I was doing last week. If you were following along in Instagram stories, you saw that it was baubles galore! Let’s explore and you can discover why I was like a kid in a candy shop.
When my agent asked me if I wanted to attend the JCK Events Las Vegas Jewelry Week as an influencer, I didn’t hesitate to say YES. Travel to Las Vegas with other influencers and visit with wholesale jewelers? Twist my arm. I met up with my fellow influencers The Hunter Collector, The Dandy Liar, Sunita V and Haute House Flower. Just like the influencer trip I did to Paris in February, I am always grateful to be selected and happy to meet new people.
JCK Las Vegas is North America’s largest jewelry show and its only open to the trade. It has two components – Luxury and JCK. All of it was housed at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Conference Center on two floors. When I say its massive, that doesn’t even do it justice. Let’s just say that I easily got in my 10,000 steps daily. This trade show is where the best designers and jewelers in the business come to show their designs to retail jewelers, big box retailers and boutiques. If you purchase your jewelry at a local store, it most likely came from this show.
I had such a great time wandering around and exploring. There are so many beautiful things to see including diamonds, precious stones, pearls, antique jewelry, watches and much more. There are pavilions sectioned off by country, retail experience and galleries. I had a great time in the Italy pavilion and it is there that I discovered Amle which I will do a separate feature on later. It’s such a unique jewelry line with handcrafted pieces made by Italian artisans.
Here are a few of the brands that caught my eye and I spent some time with. Be sure to click on their name and it will take you to their website. Rosa Van Parys, Gregg Ruth, Tacori, Gravure Commitment, Vahan, Just Jules, Graymoor Lane Designs, Freida Rothman, EFFY, Kirk Kara, Mastoloni Pearls and Genevive. We also attended a fun Bubble & Bling private party hosted ByGoldGirl for Beauty & Essex Pawn Shop. If you are not familiar with them be sure to check out their site. They have locations in NYC, Las Vegas (at the Cosmopolitan Hotel) and L.A. where you will find a treasure chest of amazing things. I also got to meet Nicole Wegman who is the Ring Concierge. If you like buying jewelry online, you will want to check out her amazing site. And you know how much I love Julie Vos Jewelry. I ran into them at the show as well!
We stayed at the Delano Hotel which is a part of the Mandalay Bay complex enabling us to walk back and forth from the JCK Events Jewelry Show as needed. Las Vegas is an easy trip with many non-stop flights from Dallas. There is so much to do in Las Vegas and the shopping is incredible!
A huge thank you to JCK Events for hosing me! xoxo- Tanya
