Have you ever wondered how Gunderson’s Jewelers finds new jewelry lines to carry? We’ll let you in on a secret: our team of buyers travel to exclusive jewelry trade shows where they can see hundreds of vendors displaying their newest creation. If you thought shopping at a jewelry store was fun, just think how fun it is to shop an entire convention center full of jewelry!

We know, you’re probably jealous. We get it! That’s why we’re letting you in on a little backstage access to our visit to the Centurion Jeweler Show last week:

There’s a reason the is one of the most sought-after gemstones. Its blend of neon blue and green have enraptured the world, driving the demand for top-quality examples through the roof. This stunning necklace from JB Star contains almost 50 carats of the prized gem leaving us with only one word to describe it: juicy. Very juicy.

One of the most exciting introductions from Doves are these killer yellow gold and diamond geometric earrings from their Fibonacci collection. If you need to put a little more color in your collection this summer, the relaxed palate of the Mint Mojito collection with green amethyst may be just what you’re looking for.

You know the saying ‘what is old is new again’? That could be a mission statement for Fred Leighton, the collector who had a soft spot for jewelry designs that others thought unfashionable. In the 50 years since he started collecting, his eponymous brand has grown to release modern interpretations of those vintage designs, like these charming Old European cut diamond rings.

If the stunning Paraiba tourmaline wasn’t enough, check out these diamonds! With a breathtaking yellow hue like fresh pineapple, either of these two stunners from Uneek are certain to be the statement piece of your jewelry wardrobe. But why stop at one—keep one on your finger and the other around your neck…!

We hope you enjoyed your quick behind-the-scenes tour of the Centurion Jewelry Show! Stay tuned to the blog—there are more exciting product announcements coming soon!
