Gemstone Roundtables are a party where the gemstones are front and center!  It is an opportunity for you to play – to see and touch beautiful loose gemstones in a fun and relaxed environment.  Enjoy great hors d’oeuvres and good company while satisfying your curiosity and passion for unique, precious, and rare gemstones.

Meet the gem dealer and learn the stories of each gem.  They represent an unusual and specific collection of gems.  Some are collectors of the rare and unusual, others are designers of specific cuts and styles.  Every collection is different from the others, and each individual dealer’s collection will be different from the previous year.  Once sold, each gem is gone.

Christopher is your host and once you’ve chosen a gem, available by appointment to give you the individual attention you need to create that one-of-a-kind setting for the gem(s) you’ve collected.  Please remember that seating is very limited.  While there is no charge to attend this unique event, reservations are required.  Reserve a seat for yourself and a guest(s) today by seeing us in store or by calling (217) 352-2415.
