Pricing Color: The Methodology & Challenges

                                                                              Presented by

 Richard B. Drucker, GIA GG


Colored gems are difficult to price due to many variables including inconsistent grading parameters among dealers and gem labs. This program will delve into many gemstones and the challenges with grading, nomenclature for describing, issues with treatments and identifications, and more. This will go beyond the big three in discussion.
