Hello all, I sell retail art and jewlery from my store in the East Bay. I have used this forum for over three years in my quest for knowledge about gemstones and their value.
I did earn my AJP from GIA and was impressed by the qualtiy of the GIA classes; And I learned some good techniques for selling jewelry to the public.
The GO forum provides many useful links on Gem information, they are quite helpful and I continue to find answers to my questions regarding gem formation, identification, and valuation. Of course, I do not pretend to be an expert, but the gem identification information I learned already saved me money by giving me the knowledge to correctly identify a gemstone I purchased at an auction house here in the bay area. I used SG in that instance. A proud moment.
I must offer my complements on the gem phots presented, absolutely expert.
The Mynamar sanctions discussion prompted me to make a comment today, so I thought I would introduce myself as well. Since I am a newbie I kept it brief, but found ithe sanctions discussion quite interesting.
Thanks for having such a great resource on line, IMHO a terrific use of the internet, this forum has truly shrunk the world in a meaningful way, where experts from the US and Europe, Africa and Asia can all input their knowledge. And I can research at will.....Wow!!! :) Thank YOU!
