Bethany Hawn debuts new program feature gemstones and jewelry
Today, Bethany Hawn of Bethany’s Jewelry & Design in Mansfield introduces her debut feature of Behind the Sparkle. “I’d like to invite you to join me for me new feature where I will talk about gemstones and jewelry,” says Bethany. “Right here on the Home Page Network.” Bethany Hawn is recognized as a Graduate Gemologist and studied gemology in New York City at the Gemological Institute of America – the foremost in gemology. GIA created the first universal method for assessing the quality of diamonds, known commonly as “the four C’s.”
“It is important for a jeweler to be gemologically trained.” states Bethany. “For instance, if you take dear old granny’s yellow-stoned ring, you want your jeweler to be able to properly identify the stone.” A rare (and expensive) yellow sapphire may be misidentified as a more common citrine stone.
“From the point of a jeweler, I need to be able to identify that the stones I buy from my vendors are genuine.” Bethany remarks.
Next time on Behind the Sparkle – Bethany will talk about garnet and amethyst – the birthstones for January and February. Thanks for watching.
