Here at Michael and Son’s Jewelers we pride ourselves in the knowledge and experience we provide for all of our customers. The gemological department is no different.
We are happy to have Martha, our Graduate Gemologist, as part of our staff. Martha has been a Graduate Gemologist since 1983 and has been in the jewelry industry here in Reno. Fifteen years of that was spent evaluating all types of jewelry for a local jewelry business.
Martha and David met as competitors in a local mall in the mid eighties. They would joke as to who had the best shop back then. Now, years later, they agree that the best shop in town is definitely Michael and Son’s Jewelers.
David, the store owner, has been using his gemological skills for the past 30 years. As a bench jeweler and jewelry designer, knowing the nature of gemstones is always critically important.
In order to keep current with the educational changes and updates, Erica, David’s daughter, is now enrolled in the GIA, the graduate gemologist correspondence program.
Please allow up to 72 hours for a response from 'Ask the Gemologist'.
