(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT – JCK announced an addition to their 2019 move to the Venetian/Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. At the request of its buyers, JCK will expand and offer a new International Gemstone neighborhood that will be home to gemstone suppliers from around the world. This unique offering opens up JCK's marketplace to allow buyers the opportunity to source directly from both domestic and international gemstone dealers.
