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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
