Adrian Blanco, manager of de Luna Jewelers in Davis, has been selected as the California Jewelers Association’s Peter Hess Scholarship recipient.

The scholarship is named in memory of former CJA President Peter Hess.

Blanco has worked for de Luna Jewelers for the past 12 years, gaining experience and knowledge in the areas of jewelry design, repairs, appraisals, sales and overall store management.

In 2008, Blanco received the Senior Management Professional Certification through Jewelers of America. He is now enrolled in the Gemological Institute of America to complete his associate jewelry professional and graduate gemologist degrees. Blanco believes his education through GIA will further his ability to educate his clients and help him achieve his goal of building trust and long-term relationships with all of his customers, a news release said.

Blanco has served the community in various roles over the years, including Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, promotions and marketing chairman for the Davis Downtown Business Association and president of the Davis Rotary Club.

Founded in 1933, the California Jewelers Association represents the interests of jewelry professionals and is the largest state association of retail jewelers, suppliers and designers in the United States. The association advocates high ethical standards and aims to provide valuable resources for members and consumers. In October 2010, CJA introduced its new consumer website, http://www.theCaratDiet.com, and re-launched its trade website, http://www.CaliforniaJewelers.org.

For more information about the association’s scholarship program or the Carat Diet, call (213) 623-5722 or visit the group’s websites.
