Education: I have been in the Jewelry business since 1990. I graduated from Silversmith jewelery school at a college in Utah, I cut and polished cabochons, faceted precious stones, and made Southwestern style Jewelry. My passion is vintage jewelry,gold, silver and costume and other collectibles. I research the history of vintage jewelry. Most vintage gold jewelry is appraised by a certified appraiser and a certificate of appraisal valued at $85.00 is included without an extra charge.
