On monday 18 January 2021 our guest and speaker was Mr. Maurizio Spoldi, sole director of Diamond Service Company S.r.l. of Milan and expert of the Chamber of Commerce in the sector of valuations of precious stones. The topic addressed, namely the gold, diamond and jewelry market, was of great interest as it provided present basic knowledge of a sector in which it is appropriate, in order to avoid falling into wrong or disadvantageous purchases, to have a minimum of awareness of the rules and criteria to which reference must be made. There was also a mention of precious stones and which stones have been revalued over time or which, on the other hand, have lost interest or value in the market or in the taste of the public. Finally, there was no shortage of cultural aspects relating to the different approaches to these assets in populations and cultures different from ours. The evening was greatly appreciated by the members present who intervened by asking the speaker several questions, showing great interest and curiosity for the topic, all in a cheerful and friendly atmosphere in full Rotarian spirit.
