(PRESS RELEASE) The American Society of Appraisers announces its Appraising Gems and Jewelry for Insurance Coverage course being held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018-Friday, May 11, 2018 in Carlsbad, CA. 

Whether you are new to the jewelry appraisal profession or regularly rely on the services of a jewelry appraisal professional, you will find the most current appraisal terminology together with appraisal development and report writing instruction presented in GJ202 invaluable. This course is designed to build a strong foundation and understanding of principals of valuation as they apply to gems and jewelry appraising, and to introduce the student to ASA descriptive guidelines for gems and jewelry. The required sections of an appraisal report for insurance coverage will be presented as modules with student exercises that encourage individual thinking and allow the student to apply valuation theory to his or her unique practice. Interactive lecture and discussion combined with class exercises create a positive learning environment in which students are encouraged to ask questions and share experiences. The limited class size affords participants the opportunity to network with top-level appraisers from across the country. Upon completion of this course, students will possess the tools and confidence necessary to write and/or interpret Gems and Jewelry appraisal reports to be used for insurance coverage in compliance with ASA and USPAP report writing requirements. 

Successful completion of GJ202 is required for GJ accreditation through ASA.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
