Diamonds and Jewelry in Times of Crisis
presented by George Spyromilios, CDG
Since 2009 Greece has been in a state of financial and humanitarian crisis. People are in need of funds, and many have found a temporary solution by selling their jewellery through both legal and illegal pawnshops which have sprung open by the hundreds. By virtue of his trade experience as a gemologist and from giving advice to the public as an appraiser, George Spyromilios has seen both sides of the story and is able to offer a unique perspective on how both sides see this unpleasant situation.
