Iem a GIA graduate gemologist, who worked at a wholesale firm in
downtown Los Angeles, where I was placed in charge of diamond
grading and jewelry quality control, but I am now a full-time author
of gem & jewelry books. My first book, the Diamond Ring Buying
Guide, was published in 1989. Since then, I have written eleven
additional books on jewelry, diamonds, colored gems and pearls; see

My newest book, which just came out in February is “Gold, Platinum,
Palladium, Silver & Other Jewelry Metals: How to Test, Select & Care
for Them.” I keep my books updated through new editions because they
are used worldwide as textbooks for colleges, training tools for
jewelers and consumer guides and references for appraisers.
