Surrounded by Tucson’s picturesque, natural beauty, JCK Tucson—which takes place Wednesday, Feb. 1–Saturday, Feb. 4—offers a relaxing and productive environment for business and networking amid Tucson Gem Week. This edited, boutique destination is for artisanal retailers in search of inspiration.
The Arizona Ballroom at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa features the world’s finest designers who set trends and take risks. Each one-of-a-kind collection is crafted with the utmost integrity and unique point of view from designers including: Adel Chefridi, Alex Šepkus, Alishan, Asbury Adams, Atelier Zobel, Chinchar/Maloney, Elizabeth Garvin, John Atencio, Marcel Roelofs, Pamela Froman, Ron Hami, Suzy Landa, Todd Reed, and many more.
The Tucson Ballroom adds a new dimension, offering buyers the chance to shop the latest offerings in technology and custom mountings from the MJSA Pavilion. Among the companies on display: Gemvision (by Stuller), TechForm Advanced Casting, B9Creations, and more. And that’s in addition to Tucson Gem Week’s finest loose gemstone and finished manufactured jewelry collections.
The JW Marriot Starr Pass Resort & Spa is perfectly situated amongst the saguaro-covered foothills of the picturesque Sonoran Desert. Camaraderie between jewelry industry peers is fostered through morning hikes, educational fireside chats with inspirational luminaries, afternoon tequila toasts, and evening roasted s’mores at the fire pits.
Join us as the industry unites for Gems After Dark on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Starr Pass, a special celebration hosted by JCK Tucson with the Women’s Jewelry Association, Gen-Next Jewelers, and AGS Young Titleholders.
