Unique Jewelry History And Appraisal

A unique presentation about history of jewelry and its origins, and Jewelry appraisal event is planned by the National Council of Jewish Women for Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at 10:30 a.m.
Greg Stopka, the JewelSmiths owner and specialist will present a brief history of Jewelry's origins and creations, based on his may years creating and studying gemstones and most ornamental jewelry.
He was born into jewelry, his family was in the business and he started working as a small boy. He did just about everything, from weeping floors, organizing service jobs, display and managing inventory to selling jewelry. He learned the business from his father and his creative style from his mother. As long as he remembers. He enjoyed taking materials, such as gemstones, existing rings and things, and creating something completely different or better. The service and design side has always been his passion. He can describe himself best as a repairer, restorer specialist of memories. He has enjoyed running his operation in Pleasant Hill, where his store is located, for over 32 years, and he will continue to do so.
Any one attending the presentation may bring 2 pieces of jewelry to be appraised and evaluated by Mr. Stopka, at no charge.
