What is a Gemstone Round table?
It is part education, part treasure hunt and all fun. The recipe is simple. Begin with the company of interesting people, add good food and drink, sprinkle liberally with loose colored gemstones, and garnish with the lore and history of each stone.
How does it work?
Remember when you were a kid and called dibs on something you liked? That’s what happens at a Collectors’ Round table. Guests call “dibs” on their favorite stones.
You can purchase an heirloom-quality gemstone in a wide range of prices and discuss jewelry design at the Round table, but there is no pressure to buy.
We want you to have a good time, learn more about your favorite gemstones, and experience nature’s masterpieces in ways few people ever do.
Why is it fun?
This is literally a hands-on event. The gems are passed around the table while Jim shares information about each gem’s history, nuances, and the intricacies of its cut.
It’s a unique opportunity to learn more about these natural wonders.
