Find the perfect gem for Mother’s Day at Gemboree

The Mother’s Day Gemboree will run from May 10-12 at the Macon County Community Building in Franklin. Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Known as “The Gem Capital of the World,” Franklin hosts three gem and minerals shows throughout the year, with others in July and October.

“Some of the nation’s finest gem and mineral dealers will display and sell everything from fine jewelry to rough and cut gems and minerals,” said Linda Harbuck, executive director of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the event.

Admission to the gemboree is $2 for adults with those under 12 years of age admitted free.
