Sheahan Stephen of Sheahan Stephen Sapphires in San Francisco is one of the top experts on sapphires and sapphire pricing.  His extensive practical experience from mine to retailer, interest in global economics, as well as his knowledge of sapphires in other regions throughout the world has given him an increased knowledge and unique understanding on sapphire pricing throughout the trade.


We are living in unprecedented times as COVID-19 is rewriting how we do business. In this webinar Sheahan will walk attendees through past, present, and future of the gem industry looking back at how we pivoted during the financial crisis of 2008 and the ending of the Sri Lankan civil war both occurring simultaneously then moving on to the pre-COVID state of the gem industry and ending with future projections.


Sheahan will discuss topics including pricing direction due to supply chain interruption, forecasting areas of volatility and their cause & effect, and encourages questions from attendees.
