News-Antique.com - Jun 16,2010 - US Antique Shows today reported strong sales and a 15 percent increase in attendance over last year at the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, an annual trade-only event that features the finest antique and vintage pieces, gemstones and watches. The show was held at MGM Grand during Jewelry Week, June 3 - 6, 2010.
The four-day show featured more than 300 national and international dealers that exhibited unique vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces. A sample of the beautiful merchandise exhibited included an amazing 7.34 carat pigeon blood Burmese ruby and diamond ring and an 18 karat yellow gold plique-a-jour diamond and emerald dragonfly brooch. Other unique pieces included heavy Georgian and Victorian jewelry that has intrinsic value and in great condition, such as a large gold and 3 carats of multi-colored sapphire locket engraved with Peony flowers.
“The gate saw a record number of buyers who were actively purchasing at this year’s show. This increase in attendees is a reflection of the stabilization of our industry,” said Andrea Canady, fair director for the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show. “This unprecedented number of dealers who came out to our show and purchased exceptional one-of-a-kind items for their customers proves the resilience of the antique and estate jewelry industry.”
Exhibitor comments on the last day of the show were favorable.
“It was the best and most high energy show we’ve had in years!” said John T. Haynes with John T. Haynes Inc. “The show had a lot of buying and selling activity.”
Todd Denaburg with Levy’s Fine Jewelry said, “The show has been much better than we thought it would be and the same has been said by all the other exhibitors I spoke to.”
