They were putting up tables at hundreds of booths Tuesday, preparing for the big GJX jewelry and gem show.

Workers put coverings on the table tops, stapled skirts to them and hung up signs for the exhibitors, among them: Noor Gem Japan Ltd., RC Gemas Ltda. of Brazil, and from Los Angeles, the elegantly named 1-800 Loose Diamonds.
