Behind the Scenes - Our Annual Tucson Gem Show Trip 2014
TUCSON GEM SHOW 2014
In our opinion February is the hardest month to be in New York. So every year, rather than freeze, Featherstone takes a trip out to the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. This is one of the main places we acquire new stones, and it one of Deirdre’s favorite opportunities to shine. Since Deirdre has been attending the show for years, she knows which Gem Traders to look for, and is a pro at spotting the true diamonds in the rough – even if the rough happens to be stunning itself! Many of our award-winning, color-forward designs owe their brightness to Deirdre’s keen eyes at Tucson!
In the true Featherstone fashion, however, we never forget to enjoy ourselves. After this trip, more than gems accompanied Deirdre home…!
Welcome to the Featherstone family, Min!
