Brown Goldsmiths – Summer Geminar

June 25 - June 27

Who – anyone and everyone who has an interest in gems, their formation, their rarity, or just because they are magnificent. May we also give a nudge to those with upcoming momentous occasions to celebrate. Wink, Wink.
What is a “Geminar?” We like to think of it as a fantastic learning and discovery experience about gemstones. Learn where and how they are discovered, mined, and cut. As an added bonus, you will have the opportunity to treat yourself to some of these specially hand selected and unique specimens with special savings during this 3 day event only.

Where – maybe the best part….the comfort of your own home!

Why we are doing this – Did you know it is the 1st Anniversary of Shannon’s Business Ownership? It is fair to say it has been one heck of a year in many ways. We want to celebrate her, the team, and everything colorful, beautiful and jewelry-related with you!

How – through social media and a Zoom Presentation (of course). Join us and Gem Expert, John Bradshaw*, for an hour of gem celebration. John has traveled the world as a speaker, consultant, curator and teacher. He was a key player in reopening one of the oldest gem mines in the U.S. at Mt. Mica and worked in Russia, Central Africa and Pakistan to evaluate diamonds and gems. This is just the tip of the iceberg in his knowledge, and we will be lucky enough to experience his wisdom first hand!

**IMPORTANT TIP – this is a limited “seating” event. Please get in contact with us for an immediate reservation, or be sure to sign up as soon as the ZOOM credentials are sent via e-mail the week of 6/16/20.

-On Thursday, you might notice our social media looks a little different. We will be posting gems that will actually be for sale for our 3 day celebration.
-Our Call will be Friday, June 26th from 7-8pm. Please sign up (either contact us directly or look for our Sign Up on social media and in e-mail).
-On Saturday, the gems we have discovered over the previous 2 days will still be for Sale AND a winner will be drawn for our $500 gift towards one of the gemstones or a design (ring, necklace, etc.) towards one of the gemstones.
Maybe you have heard of coloring for relaxation and fun? One of our talented jewelers designed special Brown’s coloring pages for you to unwind. Even better…color one or two (get the whole family involved) and post them on our social media @brown_goldsmiths or @browngoldsmiths to be entered to win $500 towards our Geminar! To win the $500 either color and post one of our gem coloring pages OR attend our Geminar. Feeling lucky? Feel free to do both and you get TWO chances to win. Our winner will be determined by a drawing.
