Just after its first-year debut, the Ethical Gem Fair Tucson was forced into hiatus, as were many others, due to COVID-19. But a new year brings a new show, and the Ethical Gem Suppliers are back. They will host the next Ethical Gem Fair Tucson at the Scottish Rite Cathedral (160 S Scott Ave, Tucson, AZ 85710), from Saturday, January 29 through Tuesday, February 1, 2022, 9AM – 6PM daily.
This is a trade-only buying event and an opportunity to find exceptional gemstones that support the Ethical Gem Suppliers’ shared vision that gemstones can be more than just beautiful. Each brand within the collective shares a strong commitment to supply chain ethics, mine-to-market traceability, environmental health and safety regulations, and supporting artisanal miners. With a focus on access to information and transparency about their practices, this is an event you will learn from in addition to walking away with some fantastic jewels.
The Ethical Gem Suppliers are made up of a handful of like-minded brands, including Agere Treasures, ANZA Gems, Capricorn Gems, Columbia Gem House, Fairtrade Gemstones, Nature’s Geometry, Nineteen48, Perpetuum Jewels, Quore, and Virtu Gem. The brands in attendance for this event will each have a variety of gemstones with event-only promotions available.
With the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere of the Scottish Rite Cathedral, attendees are invited to join to shop event specials, meet the individuals who make up this collective, and learn more about what it means to buy responsibly sourced gemstones.
Registration is free and appointments will be available throughout the event on a first-come basis. There will also be a social Meet & Greet event with Ethical Metalsmiths on Monday January 31st, 2022, from 4 – 6PM.
