New Fall Release


Prepared September 21, 2010

FACETS Gem & Mineral Gallery of Newport is proud to announce that veteran owner/gemologist Richard Petrovic, has just successfully completed the 2010 Gems & Gemology Challenge again with a perfect score! Each year, the Gemological Institute of America, an authority on diamonds and colored stones, offers an exam to review and inform jewelers/gemologists of new discoveries and changes within their industry. This year hundreds of jewelers entered to acquire the necessary knowledge to maintain a higher level of expertise in the jewelry industry. Petrovic will be among the few that will be listed in the Fall issue of Gems & Gemology for a perfect score of 100%.

As in most professional fields, continued education is a must to keep up with the changing times. The business of gem identification and jewelry appraisals is no different. This is just a part of Petrovic's dedication to continuing education. He was commended for his commitment and effort to increase his ability to serve the jewelry-buying public, ethically and professionally.

In June he also received his Presidents Volunteer Service Award, in recognition and appreciation of his commitment to strengthen our nation and for making a difference through volunteer service with the Newport Police Volunteers.
