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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
