NOVEMBER 4TH MEETING
November is election month for our state and Guild and also the time when we welcome back the always popular Denise Nelson as our guest speaker.
Denise has worked in the Jewelry trade for 30 years and is the owner of Inner Circle® Fine Jewelry Designs and Appraisals. She is a Graduate Gemologist and a member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers as well as a recipient of the Diamond Council of America’s Gem and Diamond Certificates. Denise has contributed to numerous published articles, participated in Gemological research projects and served as a consultant to retailers, auction houses, marketing firms and private collectors. In addition, she has spoken for numerous professional and private groups including the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) and was Speaker in Residence at the 2008 EFMLS Wildacres Workshop. Travels to major shows and gem mines include those in Brazil, Thailand, Namibia, South Africa, Germany, Canada and the United States.
Her talk for our meeting is entitled “Secrets of Pearls and Gems – Gemstone Enhancements”. You’ll be amazed to learn some of the deceptive and sometimes not so deceptive practices used in the gem trade to make gemstones more attractive and often more valuable for the buying public.
Sounds like a fabulous program doesn’t it? If you have any enhanced gemstones, why not bring them along for Show & Tell?
As always, our meeting will begin at 7:30 pm at our studio at Meadow Mill.
