Welcome to my World of Fine Gems and Jewels!

For over four decades I have been working as a gemologist and purveyor of fine jewels, rare gems and objects of distinction.

The world I offer here is born of the treasures I find, or rather, the treasures that find me along the way: fine gems, antique and period jewels and antiquities. Works of art are most often inspired by the pursuit of life's meaning and this inspiration is what drives my taste. It is a world of rare Gems and Minerals, Antiques and Art from the four corners of the earth including Tibet, China, Mesoamerica, South East Asia, Europe and Africa.

I find that every jewel or object that I create or acquire, eventually moves on into someone else's hands for their own enjoyment and safe keeping. An amazing and diverse group forms my client base. I count among them, people from all walks of life - from students, doctors and builders to musicians, artists and scholars - from technicians, clergy and playwrights to gardeners, postal workers and professional athletes. It would be my pleasure to provide you with something rare and beautiful, from the ever changing pages that follow. Please avail yourself of My Adventures In The Gem Trade feature at the upper left. I periodically add new stories and adventures.

Dealer inquiries are always welcomed.
