Merrick, NY—The Centurion presents a Free Educational Webinar, with the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA):DOING APPRAISALS CORRECTLY DURING AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, on THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 2:00 PM EST.
The featured speaker will be DAVID S. ATLAS, President, D. Atlas & CO., Inc., NAJA Associate Director and Chair OF Ethical Issues
We are thrilled that David Atlas will be covering the following key areas during this fascinating Free Appraisal Webinar:
- How can an Appraiser correctly price diamonds and fine jewelry in the midst ofand immediately following the COVID-19 Pandemic and ensure the report is safe to write and that the client is well informed?. While Appraisers don't get into predicting the future, the markets will be in a new environment post-Pandemic and this does need to be considered.
- People Passing Away during COVID-19 will also present a very special case for an Appraiser. The diamonds and jewelry are supposed to be valued at the date of death, but there is not much of a market during the Pandemic. Perhaps High-Net-Worth Individuals who pass away at this time are saving their heirs a large amount of money.
- How to handle Appraisals when there is potential that Man Made/Lab Grown Diamondshave been mixed in with the diamonds and jewelry being appraised? This discussion will cover how to find and handle such stones in a sensible way. Whether the client is the Buyer or Seller also comes into play.
