Mr Elly Rosen, AiSCV - AVS & GJS, AiSV., (AiSoc), G.G., F.G.A.
Valuation & Appraising needs Qualified "Valuers & Appraisers". Gemology has it's place in the broad "appraisal"
process, but Valuation & Appraising has no substitute for Valuation & Appraisal Science studies.
Professional Gemmologists should not pass on an opportunity to learn why the answer to "valuation and appraisal" professionalism is rooted in "valuation" science rather than incorrectly promulgated "gemmological" science.

Perhaps due to prior limited access, much of the gemmological community remains unaware of the simple reality
that to "value" and/or "appraise" one needs "valuation and appraisal" education, testing and certification.
The notion that "gemmological" proficiency somehow translates to "valuation and appraisal" competency has long since been discredited by fundamental, proven valuation principles and appraisal reality.
