We have excellent news! We’ve exceeded our goal of 75 deposits. CJCI Convention 2020 is a definite go the weekend of October 23-25, 2020!


The theme for CJCI Convention 2020 will be: Jewelry Around the World.

Like our past events, CJCI Convention 2020 will include a wonderful melding of jewelry buying and selling, educational opportunities, and a chance to get to know other collectors. More information on specific guest speakers, educational workshops, and pre-conference activities will be announced as our planning continues.

Registration will open in early 2020. At that time full fees will be accepted, and those who have made deposits will be welcome to pay the remainder due. We anticipate it to be on par with the 2017 fee (in the neighborhood of $375-425 with an additional cost of $30-50 to have a table at the open-to-the-public show and sale).

The registration fee includes all meals from Friday evening through Sunday morning; admission to all educational workshops; admission to the Saturday show and sale for non-sellers; and an invitation to participate in all pre-conference activities arranged for the group.

The event will be held at the newly renovated Radisson Hotel Providence Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island, and their staff is ready to take your room reservation ($119 double or king/$139 suite). Please call the Radisson directly at 401/739-3000 and mention that you are with Costume Jewelry Collectors Int’l to receive the group rates.

Take a look at photos of the freshly updated sleeping rooms at the Radisson on our website (photos of other renovations at the hotel are forthcoming):

As our planning continues, we’ve decided continue accepting pre-registration deposits until we open registration in early 2020.

Additional Pre-Registration Deposits:

    • Allow us to exceed our break-even point in attendance, which mitigates a larger portion of our personal financial exposure in meeting guarantees with the hotel;
    • Help us determine space requirements for activities during the event;
    • Pay the first $100 toward the registration fee for attendees.

To make your deposit, use the PayPal “BUY NOW” button below (preferred method):

Or, mail your check for $100 payable to CJCI to:

P.O. Box 446
Benicia, CA 94510


Non-refundable – Since we have signed a contract with the venue and will be continuing our planning, the deposit will not be refundable even if the payee cannot attend in 2020. We will need these funds to mitigate our exposure to venue fees should we have to cancel the convention or have a low turnout for the event.
