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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
