Welcome to my blog!
It’s a place i hope to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about gemstones and antique Jewelry. I have been fascinated with gemstones since childhood, and I have worked in the business for ten years. I am a Gemologist, having completed a graduate program at GIA (the Gemology Institute of America http://www.gia.edu/ ).
My study of gems has led me to towards a passion for antique jewelry. I love old jewelry for several reasons, foremost among them the level of craftsmanship and detail, which is so often overlooked in modern manufacturing techniques. I myself manufacture jewelry, lending an appreciation of what it takes to create a finished piece.
Additionally, the heritage and history intrigue me, connecting the wearer back through time.
