Julia always offers a really professional and polished presentation on THE most pressing subject of the moment. – Member Feedback, JVA Conference 2022. 

Julia has become a mainstay at the Jewellery Valuers Association Registered Valuer Conference with good reason. Combining knowledge and strong speaker presence, Julia is a thoroughly engaging speaker who has become a leading light in the identification of and developing knowledge around the market impact of laboratory grown diamonds.

In September 2022 Julia was one of the JVA’s main presenters and delivered an incisive and eye opening 3-point presentation into the current issues facing buyers of significant stones, challenging long-held beliefs and assumptions in relation to the impact of LGDs on the market. Many of the facts presented were new to our members and are now key to their valuing practice.

Julia’s workshops are thoroughly prepared, with a comprehensive range of instruments and an extensive samples allowing learners to truly get to grips with the identification of LGDs.

We would absolutely recommend both Julia’s workshops to all facets of the jewellery industry, from valuing through retail, manufacturing, all the way to the front-line customer facing public. She has developed an unsurpassed knowledge base on LGDs and has used her expertise to develop a cutting-edge programme of education. We certainly intend to work with Julia into the future and we recommend others in the industry to do the same.

Julia has assisted the Institute [of Registered Valuers] and the National Association of Jewellers with gemmological training for the last six years.

We first approached her to run 90-minute gemmological workshops at our Valuers’ Conference back in 2016 when she was working for the Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A), and again in 2017. In recent years, she has offered workshops to our members on identifying laboratory-grown diamonds.

Her workshops at our Conferences are always popular and fully subscribed. Members’ feedback reveals that her enthusiam, knowledge and the inclusion of practical hands-on participation makes for an all-round worthwhile learning experience. Those who chose to attend her workshops regularly declare her workshop to be one of the best parts of their Conference experience.

Julia’s knowledge and her willingness to share it with others offers organisations such as ourselves with an opportunity to provide members/participants with up-to-date training which makes them better professionals who can offer their customers the best service.

I have no hesitation in recommending Julia as a lecturer/speaker for gemmological training purposes.
