As you finish your buying in Antwerp, enjoy this extended, hosted trip to the world’s most famous capital of fine-colored gemstones, Idar-Oberstein, Germany. RJO vendor, Hans-Dieter Haag has put together an all-inclusive package exclusively for RJO members to tour their colored gemstone factory and the historical sites in the midst of 2000 years of still visible and touchable history. You may even try a little stone cutting of your own. Explore the history, taste the best wines, dine in Medieval Restaurants and enjoy an evening at Oktoberfest. Extend your knowledge of colored gemstones to educate your customers, build an exotic colored gemstone supply and enjoy all the profits this trip has to offer.
