Event description


The Spring 2019 Gemstone Roundtable is Here!

Most people only see gemstones after they’ve been set. The Gemstone Roundtable gives you the opportunity to see stones through the eyes of a jeweler.

learning about gems

Learn about and hold loose, pre-cut gems of all kinds, shapes, sizes, and colors. You'll sit with gemstone expert, James Alger, and award-winning jewelry designer, llyn strong, for an exclusive and memorable night out.

James will present, describe, and pass out exquisite gemstones for you to review. You'll be able to discover what stones suit your personal style and envision what each stone might look like in a piece of your own design. Remember to ask llyn for a sketch of the piece you're envisioning!

Admission is free and dinner + drinks are complementary. Seating is limited. A reservation is required.
