MalicJewels puts on an amazing jewelry show, covering coast to coast (literally), making stops all around the United States. I was thrilled to check them out when they were in Nashville (March 19-21) at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. I got to chat with the Founder, Debbie Williams, talk to jewelry designer Doreen Sanborn, admire the sparkling selection of Jacob’s Diamonds & Estate Jewelry–and even make a purchase!
Above is jewelry designer Doreen Sanborn showing me some of her designs, “dks Designs.” She specializes in fine gemstone jewelry using all types of gemstones. Some stand out pieces of hers were jewelry designs featuring carved tourmalines, a large sunflower cut citrine, and her thumbprint “Love Taps” collection. Doreen was wearing a bracelet from the Love Taps collection, shown below. One thumbprint is hers and the other is her husband’s. Check out more of her jewelry on her website by clicking here.
I also got a chance to talk to the founder of MalicJewels Jewelry & Gift Show, Debbie Williams. She is proud to host a jewelry show that focuses on both the customers and vendors, while promoting some great merchandise. MalicJewels may be new to the jewelry show scene, with 2010 being its second year, but it has 20 shows scheduled for this year, with customers growing in numbers. I really appreciate the Free Admission at every show, not many shows have that anymore. For a show schedule click here or follow my tweets on Twitter, I announce them every Friday.
Jacob’s Diamonds & Estate Jewelry drew me in right away! They offer jewelry from every jewelry period, whether you like Retro, Victorian, Art Deco… In my case I fell in love with an Edwardian piece. The duo is based out of Los Angeles and travel with MalicJewels showcasing their jewelry at most shows. The ring that made its way into my jewelry box is the one below. It is done in 14k yellow gold with a platinum setting, featuring diamonds and sapphires. Make sure to check out their website and become a fan of theirs on Facebook. Thanks Jacob & Rigoberto!
