9780943763019: Jewelry and Gems: The Buying Guide (Jewelry & Gems: The Buying Guide (Paperback))

to this edition In working with my own clients to acquire gemstones and jewelry since this book was first published in 1984, they have pointed out that most people buy "jewelry" and not "gemstones." Because the book offers so much practical advice and money-saving tips about buying jewelry, they urged me to change the title. So, in this edition The Complete Guide to Buying Gems has been changed to Jewelry & Gems: The Buying Guide. Consumer and professional response to the book has been very gratifying. Almost 14,000 hardcover copies are in circulation. We have received hundreds of letters, phone calls and in-person comments about the helpfulness and interesting information it provides. We thank you for encouraging us to make the book more widely available by bringing out this softcover edition. We have taken the opportunity of this softcover edition to update the price guides for diamonds and colored gemstones and, in light of the increase in both the popularity and price of pearls, to add a price guide for them in the "Guide to Popular Gems and Their Prices." Also, we want to take this opportunity to comment further on gem invest­ ment, taking into account major developments since the original manuscript was written in 1980.

About the Author:

Antoinette Matlins, P.G., is an internationally respected gem and jewelry expert, author, and lecturer. Recently honored with the international Accredited Gemologists Association’s highest award for excellence in gemology, Ms. Matlins is the author of many books that are widely used throughout the world by consumers and professionals in the gem and jewelry field. Her books include Jewelry & Gems: The Buying Guide (over 300,000 copies now in print—the only book of its kind ever offered by Consumer Reports); The Pearl Book: The Definitive Buying Guide; Gem Identification Made Easy; Engagement & Wedding Rings: The Definitive Buying Guide for People in Love; and Jewelry & Gems at Auction: The Definitive Guide to Buying & Selling at the Auction House & on Internet Auction Sites.

Gemology Editor of National Jeweler magazine for almost a decade, her articles and comments on buying and selling gems and jewelry and on gem investment have appeared in many national and international consumer and trade publications. She is also the author of the "Gemstones" chapter in the Encyclopedia of Investments.

Ms. Matlins has gained wide recognition as a dedicated consumer advocate. She has spearheaded the Accredited Gemologists Association’s nationwide campaign against gemstone investment telemarketing scams. A popular media guest, she has been seen on ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN, educating consumers about gems and jewelry and exposing fraud.

In addition to her educational work, Ms. Matlins is retained by clients worldwide to seek fine, rare, or unusual gems and jewels for acquisition.

Antonio C. Bonanno, F.G.A., P.G., A.S.A., noted gemologist and appraiser, was president of National Gem Appraising Laboratory, and director of Columbia School of Gemology near Washington, D.C. He held the coveted "Master Gemologist Appraiser" title (M.G.A.), the highest distinction awarded to gem and jewelry appraisers of the American Society of Appraisers. He worked with gems and minerals for over fifty years, specializing in forensic gemology. One of the first Americans to become a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain "With Distinction," he also was an Associate of the Alumni of the Gemological Institute of America. Highly esteemed in the field, he was president of the Accredited Gemologists Association. Today, three daughters and one son, all professional gemologists, carry on his dedication to gemological research and educating professionals and consumers alike.
