Around The World In An Hour

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

After developing my photos from our recent trip to Tucson, I realized how many countries we had visited in a single afternoon! The South American tent took us to Peru.

The Madagascar tent showed us interesting fossils and the most beautiful LabradoriteĀ 

And yes, we went to Africa and Australia as well.

Not only do we have the opportunity to see the latest cuts or colors of beautiful gemstones, like these faceted opals from one of our favorite suppliers to Jewelry Television,

but we come to appreciate the laborious process of searching for these treasures.

You may tune in to a shopping channel and feel like you see an abundance of beautiful baubles. But from this perspective, we’re reminded that it takes many months (in some cases, years) to mine and sort them; cut and polish them; design and set themĀ 

into magnificent pieces of wearable art.

The annual Tucson Show is not the end of the journey… it’s just the beginning. But, it IS the culmination of a lot of hard work!
