Among the many shows and trade events we attend during the year, the most delightful are those which allow us to spend fun time with our clients. At the 2004 AGS Conclave in Atlanta, GA, Pala’s Gabrièl Mattice enjoys the company of some of our clients. From left: Amy Helein (Appleton’s, Appleton, WI); Mary Beth Kroh (Hamilton Jewelers, Princeton, NJ), Gabrièl Mattice (Pala International), and Lucas Amelung (Molina Jewelers, Scottsdale, AZ).
