Ethical Gem Fair Is Returning to Brooklyn
Marking its second year in New York City, the event is slated for mid-October.
The event will be held Oct. 19-21 at metalsmithing studio and gallery Brooklyn Metal Works.
It’s organized by the Ethical Gemstone Suppliers Group, self-defined as a community of gemstone suppliers based in the U.S. and abroad that share a commitment to transparency and responsible sourcing throughout the gemstone supply chain.
This year’s show will include suppliers Anza Gems, Capricorn Gems, Columbia Gem House, Nature’s Geometry, Perpetuum Jewels, and Virtu Gem.
The fair is centered around education and access to information on responsible sourcing practices with selected suppliers speaking on related topics each morning.
Previously held in the U.K., the Ethical Gem Fair initially came to the U.S. in 2020, aligning with the Tucson gem shows.
The fair held two virtual events during the pandemic, and then expanded to Denver in 2021, coinciding with the inaugural HardRock Summit.
The fair is open to trade members, as well as students and metalsmiths of Brooklyn Metal Works.
Registration is free on Ethical Gem Supplier’s website.
