Yesterday, July 28, Brian Gavin was a featured speaker at the ASA International Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Conference covered several disciplines and ran from July 26 – 28, at the J.W. Marriott Resort and Spa. The Gems and Jewelry Program featured many different specialists in the field including Peter Yantzer and Patrick Stout from the American Gem Society Laboratories and Nancy Stacy, a well known and respected appraiser from California.
Brian detailed the development of his Hearts and Arrows Grading System and the strict parameters he enforces to ensure true, symmetrical hearts and arrows patterning. He also recounted his entry into the Internet “e-tail” marketing business in 1999 and described his exciting journey of growth and success in the years since.
The conference was attended by appraisers from all across the country and it was a great honor to be able to network with this professional group of men and women.
