(PRESS RELEASE) Mark your Calendar — Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) announces its annual February gemological education conference, which will be a virtual event.

The 2021 AGA virtual conference will take place Feb. 16 and 17, 2021, and deliver four gemological education sessions over two days, online each day from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (PST). The event is open to everyone, and attendees can register to participate in both days or single-day sessions.

The conference will feature Industry experts discussing timely topics including a global update on the diamond marketplace, insight into gem pegmatites and their related mineralogy and gemology, results of experimental heat treatments of corundum, and the first-hand account of attending Myanmar’s famed annual trading emporium for gems.

AGA president, Teri Brossmer, said “Although we are unable to meet in person for our annual Tucson conference this coming February — AGA is excited to host the 2021 AGA Virtual Conference and to deliver the top-notch gemological education experience that our members and the industry look forward to attending each year. No matter the obstacle, AGA remains committed to providing educational opportunities to our network of loyal AGA members and gem enthusiasts who invest in their knowledge and shape the future of gemology. We look forward to bringing folks together again and hope you will join us.”

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
