Craig Burgess of A & C Gold and Diamonds Celebrates 35th Anniversary

(SAVANNAH, GA) Craig Burgess of A & C Gold and Diamonds is inviting the public to celebrate two milestone anniversaries during October. Burgess is observing his 35th anniversary as the local authority on rare and beautiful objects, and he is also celebrating his return to the business after a medical sabbatical, and the one-year anniversary of the re-opening of his company, A & C Gold and Diamonds.

To mark both occasions, Burgess is inviting the public to receive an examination and digital photograph of one item using A&C Gold and Diamonds’ state-of-the-art high definition photography equipment. The camera system produces a detailed image of the gem that can be used for insurance identification purposes, or to complement an appraisal. This free service will be offered throughout the entire month.

Burgess has also invited master jewelry craftsman Gregory Crawford to show his designs at A&C Gold and Diamonds on October 24 and 25. Crawford has literally spent a lifetime in the jeweler’s workshop studio, devoting the last quarter century to designing and building beautiful settings for extraordinary gemstones. He holds a U.S. Patent for the Holo-Gem pendant and one of his rare Holo-Gem fire opal pendants is now part of the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection. The craftsman will be available for limited private consultations, by appointment only.

In 1979, Burgess co-founded A&C Jewelry and Design, an independent jewelry store based in Savannah. But after a 26-year career, in which he handled well over $50 million in diamond transactions, he found himself in deteriorating health and was forced to retire in 2006. After being diagnosed in 2008 with immune system suppression due to heavy metal exposure (from jewelry polishing compounds), Burgess eventually regained his health and discovered his love for the industry was still as strong as was the market’s demand for his services. In 2013, he made his second professional debut, founding A&C Gold and Diamonds.

Burgess is offering the Gregory Crawford showing as well as the free examination and digital photography of one item in October to thank his clients for an exceptional “comeback” year, as well as introduce his services to new generations. As a value luxury destination, A & C Gold and Diamonds strives to offer customers the highest quality products, best price and most accurate valuation for coins, diamonds, estate jewelry, currency, and all gold and silver items.
