High-end jewels from JCK Las Vegas There’s a lot to see and do at JCK Las Vegas (this comes as news to no one, surely), so it’s important to prioritize your visit and pack your schedule as full as you can make it. On the flipside, you want to save a little time to roam the show floor, because meandering often leads you to discover something new, like brands you’ve never done business with before, or up-and-coming trends.

The stone to know before you go When you’re #JCKTucsonBound, you’re already expecting to be delighted by a number of gemstones, both known to you and brand new.
