Grand Old Jewelry at the Rio

If you’re an old-jewelry aficionado, pack your bags for the Rio Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. That’s where you’ll find the annual Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show, running this year from May 29 to June 1, 2003. The show, which last year drew an audience of 3,500, will feature nearly 300 exhibitors showcasing fine antique and estate jewelry, vintage watches, and antique reproduction designs.

This year the show opens one day prior to The JCK Show ~ Las Vegas, allowing buyers and browsers who arrive early to get a jump-start on their jewelry hunt. Here, courtesy of some of the exhibitors, is a preview of the kinds of pieces you’ll see at the show.
