Second Virtual ‘Ethical Gem Fair’ Event Happens This Week
The digital event is slated for June 10-12 and is free to interested trade buyers.
The Ethical Gem Fair launched in the U.S. during the 2020 Tucson gem shows, offering a selection of stones the group calls traceable and ethically mined.
Earlier this year, it held the event virtually given the Tucson market looked a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, the group is planning to hold its second digital buying event, slated for June 10-12. It’s open to the trade only and is free to participate.
The Ethical Gem Fair will offer not only the chance to buy from participating dealers but also to meet with each in “rooms” for the chance to ask questions and learn more about products and practices.
Attendees are encouraged to set individual appointments with vendors ahead of time, but there will also be appointments available throughout the show on a first come, first served basis.
There will also be educational sessions covering topics like traceability and transparency; synthetic vs. natural gemstones; community development, education and building sustainable mining communities; and more.
Each will have special event-only promotions during this week’s fair.
