I am a Certified Gemologist, holding the title of GG (Graduate Gemologist) (GIA) Carlsbad, CA, USA.
I’ve been in the gem and jewelry industry for over 15 years now, involved mostly in sales and appraisals.
I was also a member of NAJA (National Association of Jewelry Appraisers). This is a very prestigious institution in USA and very difficult to get a membership to. You have to have the highest ethics and very strong references to become a member. Since I’m overseas now, I’m no longer a member, but still in very good standing with Gail Levine, the director.
Besides being an expert in the above, I’m also an actor and a voiceover artist.
