The event is set for Jan. 28-29 in Tucson.

(Press Release) The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers announces that it will award an ACE It
Appraisal Conference Scholarship to a deserving gemology student.

NAJA invites GIA, FGA, FGAA, FGG, FCGmA and RGA students to apply for this scholarship for the 48th Annual ACE It Winter Educational Conference scheduled on Jan. 28-29 in Tucson, AZ.

This opportunity gives the gemology student a firsthand experience of networking with appraisal professionals by attending the NAJA educational experience during a time when Tucson devotes itself to gems, jewelry and minerals. The scholarship, which covers the conference fee only, requires a resume, photo and an essay explaining the reason why the gemology student would choose to become a gems and jewelry appraiser. NAJA believes that becoming a gems and jewelry professional appraiser is a viable career option for gemological students. Applications can be obtained through the NAJA website: http://najaappraisers.com/ScholarshipApp2016.pdf.

The deadline for submission is Nov. 1, 2017, and the final selection by the NAJA Scholarship Advisory Board will be announced Dec. 1, 2017.

The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers is the largest membership association specializing exclusively in gem and jewelry appraising and related appraisal issues. It offers education and networking opportunities with knowledgeable appraisal professionals. For further information, contact Gail Brett Levine, GG, executive director, The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers, P.O. Box 18, Rego Park, NY 11374, 718.896.1536.

Wilkerson Paves the Way for the Future

After serving the San Antonio, Texas community for decades, C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers closed its doors earlier this year. Aaron and Mary Peñaloza, the store’s owners, chose Wilkerson to handle their retirement sale. “In the first six days, we did six months’ worth of business,” says Aaron. “In the first three weeks, we did a year’s worth of business.” Mary Peñaloza says Wilkerson’s ability to tailor the sale to their store’s requirements really made it all so much easier. “They are professionals,” she says. “They know what they’re doing. They have a plan, but they will listen to you and adjust that plan to your needs.”
