AGTA Gems Pavilion at the JCK Show 2023

JCK Las Vegas welcomed a dedicated American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) area to the Venetian Expo, and while the AGTA pavilion remains the show’s premier destination for colored stones, things will look a little different this year.

For starters: “Last year our footprint was 6,000 square feet, and this year we’re up to over 25,000 square feet,” says AGTA board president Kimberly Collins, a gem dealer based in Reno, Nevada.

A stone that is ascendant at the connoisseur level is malaya garnet from Tanzania. After seeing a spike in demand at the Tucson gem shows earlier this year, Daniel Assaf of the Tsavorite Factory is expecting the peachy-pink color-change gems to perform well at JCK.

One overarching color trend that still has legs, especially for bridal, is teal, particularly in the sapphire family. “A lot of people refer to these stones as mermaid or peacock blue-green, whether it’s of Montana, Madagascar, or Sri Lanka origin,” Collins says.

the inflationary environment means some buyers are looking for bargains. Most AGTA sellers don’t deal in commercial-quality material, but even among these prestigious exhibitors you will find some good buys and sleeper hits.
