Gemologist Josh Cohn joins Morphy Auctions
Morphy Auctions has announced the appointment of gemologist and art glass expert Josh Cohn to its team of specialists. A graduate gemologist (GG) who spent 20 years at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) -the world leader in the grading and quality analysis of gemstones and diamonds – Cohn is a recognized expert in his field. He will bring his vast knowledge and experience to all Morphy sales that include estate jewelry, diamonds and other precious gems.
Cohn, who lives in a New York City suburb, spent most of his years at GIA in a laboratory environment, identifying and verifying diamonds of all types. He also studied while at GIA and earned his GG accreditation there.
"Although he is very well known in the world of diamonds and gemstones, Josh is also a respected dealer of art glass, silver, jewelry and paintings. His shop in Great Barrington, Mass., The Emporium, is a popular stop for antique hunters in the Berkshires," said Morphy Auctions CEO Dan Morphy.
"We’re very pleased that Josh has agreed to become part of our organization."
Cohn is currently in the process of gathering precious gem and estate-jewelry consignments to evaluate and catalog for Morphy’s Nov. 2 Fine & Decorative Art Auction. So far, highlights include a five-carat white diamond, a five-carat colored diamond in a platinum mounting set with smaller colored diamonds, and several highly desirable collector-quality color-changing diamonds known in the trade as "chameleons." Cohn also expects to receive auction consignments of mounted and loose colored diamonds, and other fine gemstones, including sapphires, expressly for the Nov. 2 event.
