PURCHASE WITH CONFIDENCE - COLLECT WITH PASSION
A fine diamond is a gift of love that will last a lifetime. A diamond will often be passed down from generation to generation and become a family treasure. Diamonds are the symbol of love and beauty and are treasured gifts, so it is important to choose your diamond wisely. A vintage or signed jewelry piece is a treasure for ages to come and holds fond memories for all who own them.
I have been a fine diamond and jewelry consultant for many years. I grew up in a family where my great uncles from Italy were diamond cutters and setters in New York City. Thus, I was around beautiful gems most of my life.
Over the years I have built a vast network of diamond and jewelry professionals from around the globe giving me access to some of the most beautiful diamonds, signature fine jewelry pieces and rare collectable jewels of distinction. I curate and sell fine diamonds, and vintage and antique jewelry for investors and collectors. The vintage pieces I have for purchase include signed, fine jewelry from master jewelers whose jewelry have sold at the great auction houses of the world.
I know the value of a client being well educated in order to make an informed decision and the importance of having trust in their purchase. Having a diamond and jewelry expert that can teach you how to value a diamond is essential in securing a fine diamond. This kind of expertise is vital in creating a portfolio of exquisite pieces of vintage jewelry and rare gems. I hold a certification from the Gemological Institute of America in Diamonds and Diamond Grading.
