Ethical Gem Fair Heads to NYC for the First Time
The event is slated for Oct. 20-22 at Brooklyn Metal Works.
The event is hosting a New York City edition this fall for the first time, launching a fair in Brooklyn.
The Ethical Gem Fair Brooklyn will be held from Oct. 20-22 at Brooklyn Metal Works, a metalsmithing studio and gallery located in the borough’s Prospect Heights neighborhood.
The Brooklyn event follows closely on the fair’s second Denver show, which took place earlier this month at local gallery Balefire Goods just prior to the HardRock Summit.
The Ethical Gem Fair initially came to the U.S. in 2020, aligning with the Tucson gem shows, before going virtual during the pandemic and then expanding to Denver last year to coincide with the inaugural HardRock Summit.
The event is organized by the Ethical Gem Suppliers and this time will include Agere Treasures, Anza Gems, Capricorn Gems, Columbia Gem House, Perpetuum, and Nature’s Geometry.
The group said the upcoming event will also feature education sessions about their practices.
Registration for the Ethical Gem Fair Brooklyn is free, open to trade only, and can be found at Eventbrite.com.
