Antoinette Matlins - 2005 Honorary Bonnanno Award Recipient
Antoinette Matlins, PG, is a well-known author of many books on gems and jewelry and a leading educator both within the trade and to the public.
Initially pursuing a career in primary remedial education and subsequently moving into the advertising field in New York City, gemology remained only a hobby until the early 1980s. Angered by misinformation that had been appearing in various investment magazines for several years regarding diamonds, gemstones and gem investment, Matlins decided there was a real need for a book to protect consumers; in 1984 this book was published, written by Matlins, with Antonio Bonanno as co-author.

The Accredited Gemologists Association's nationwide campaign against gemstone investment telemarketing scams was spearheaded by Matlins, and she is often seen on television segments on ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN educating consumers and exposing fraud and misrepresentation.
Through her books, articles, lectures and media appearances, she has played an important role in bringing information to the public's attention regarding the routine use of gemstone treatments and in focusing the trade on the need for disclosure. In the educational arena, applying her father's unique approach to gemology, Matlins developed an innovative, practical course focused at people in the trade without an interest in gemology. Her goal was to give people without any science or technical background the skills they needed to reduce risk and to gain greater confidence in buying and selling gems.
Her unique approach has taken her as an educator not only to major gem shows and conferences, but to such places as the Northwest Frontier Province of Pakistan where she spent a month sharing her techniques with illiterate miners. It is estimated that she has personally taught several thousand people, many of whom have gone on to pursue the study of gemology and to obtain gemological diplomas.

"It is with special pleasure that we present this award to Bob," explains Antoinette Matlins, one of Bonanno's gemologist-daughters, "because of the wonderful relationship he shared with Dad and the great mutual respect they felt for one another.

"His work has been a primary force in bringing about universal changes in disclosure policies," said Antoinette Matlins. "Although his positions have not always been popular, and his assertions often challenged, he exemplifies what it means to take a stand on an important issue, and to persevere for what you believe. According to Matlins, Beesley's work has resulted in changes in the entire treatment arena, including laboratory certification, and his work has benefited the entire gem and jewelry industry, creating a more honest and forthright environment. "This was what my father strove for his entire life, and the reason he worked so hard in helping to build the AGA, and programs like the AGA's Master Gemologist Appraiser (which was subsequently taken over by the American Society of Appraisers).
