At J. Anthony Jewelers we do things a bit differently than other jewelers. Throughout our 28 years in Downtown Neenah we have created thousands of one-of-a-kind jewelry creations in both gemstones and diamonds. We have a fascination for colored gemstones and thus a unique invite for you.
On April 8th and 9th at the Best Western Bridgewood Hotel in Neenah, we will be hosting Jerry Romanella and Sindi Schloss, a renowned colored gemstone expert and a GIA Graduate Gemologist respectively. They will be visiting us after giving a presentation at the Smithsonian in Washington DC.
This is an opportunity to learn from the best and discover how real gemstone professionals go about their trade. Learn about gemstones you love and others you likely have never heard of before. Best of all, you can touch them, examine them with your own provided set of professional equipment, and buy your favorite gems at an exceptional price!
We invite you and a guest to pick either April 8th or 9th to learn from Jerry and Sindi and the jewelry professionals at J. Anthony Jewelers. Seating is limited to 20 guests per night and registration is $50 per person. This includes hors d’oeuvres and wine for the evening and professional gemstone tools for you to take home. Social starts at 6pm and the program begins at 630pm. Plan on a couple hours for the evening.
