You don’t need a crystal ball to see that the future of gemstone buying for jewelers has changed. Buying gems online is not really a new concept, but it can be tricky and intimidating.

Join us for this FREE talk by LisaJoy Sachs of SaxDsign, a stone cutter and online dealer. She will walk us through things jewelry makers want to look out for, and talk about a few different gem groups that she specializes in such as Opals, Tourmalines, and Fossils. She'll discuss rough and cut stones, as well as a bit about characteristics to help you make better decisions about buying online, as we all try to create pieces during the pandemic!

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

Location: Silvera Jewelry School, Berkeley, CA
