I was born and raised in the south. My grandmother started giving me jewelry when I was three years old. She used each piece to celebrate a special event in my life, no matter how big or small. Much later, while pursuing my accounting degree, I worked for a small local jeweler and became fascinated with gemstones of all kinds and how they formed. I then became a Graduate Gemologist and Pearl Graduate through GIA, Registered Gemologist Appraiser through ISG, and a Certified Gemologist Appraiser though AGS. I love jewelry and timepieces of all kinds, especially antique jewelry and colored gemstones. Every piece of jewelry tells a story, let me help you find the perfect way to share yours!
