Best Place to Buy Sparklies (2013)

Gem Faire

Sure, everyone's broke, but that doesn't mean the ladies have to do without their sparklies. Peruse the many aisles of the Gem Faire, a traveling gem-and-bead expo that hits Costa Mesa several times a year, and feast those hungry eyes on glittering sapphires, emeralds, amethysts, diamonds, geodes, beads, rhinestone jewelry—basically, more sparkles than the Pride Parade. And with glimmering goods available at every price point (cute trinkets for two bucks), everyone can feel rich for a bit—at least until Prince Valiant re-emerges from Chapter 11.
