Re: Orchidians visiting Ellay (Los Angeles, to the out-of towners.) I
have had my business in the California Jewelry Mart since 1983. I am a
Graduate Gemologist, fourth generation in the diamond business.
(Previous three generations were all diamond cutters. I don't work
at the diamond cutting wheel, but make mostly custom order jewelry.) I
know, and have done business with a great many of the firms in this
district since I started workng here in the early 1970's.
If you will be visiting the Jewelry District, PLEASE DO drop in to
say "hello." I'll be glad to let you know of some good sources with
whom to shop.
I agree, by the way, with MOST of Catherine Bacos Clinch's
recommendatons. I haven't met her, but extend the offer to her, as
