Greener Days: Lucky Gemstones at JCK Las Vegas 2019

Green is an anytime color, but it’s most remarkable as a symbol of spring.

Coming out of a long, cold winter when the trees have been bare, the ground has been covered in snow, and the brightest evidence of nature has been hibernating, green is a welcome promise of warmer days ahead. Buds appear on trees, the grass regains life, and, with it, the spring in your step returns.

Come March, green takes center stage in St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Revelers don their finest green fashions (that means jewelry!), eat and drink green treats, and in some places even dye their fountains and rivers green (like the whole Chicago River).

Best of all—especially for the jewelry crowd—May’s birthstone is the beautiful and classic emerald. This beloved store staple stands the test of time, regardless of Pantone’s Color of the Year or current gemstone trends.

JCK Las Vegas marks the unofficial start of summer, another season when we’re enchanted with green—which is a good thing since there will be plenty of it on the show floor. From everlasting emerald to gorgeous green tourmaline, pretty prasiolite, and jovial jade, you’ll find a world of green to discover at the show.

Pictured are just some of what you’ll be treated to during your time in Vegas, many residing in our Luxury, Design @ Luxury, and Prestige neighborhoods, which will open to an invitation-only audience on May 29 and May 30 and welcome all guests of JCK Las Vegas May 31–June 3.

Pssst…if you’re looking for green gemstones of the loose variety, new for 2019 is the Global Gemstone Pavilion, featuring a roster of incredible gemstone vendors, international and domestic. Learn more at
