Hello and welcome! If you are looking for in-depth information about jewelry, you’ve come to the right place! It is my mission to give consumers unbiased jewelry information from an insider perspective.
I’m currently a gem-obsessed writer who has been lucky enough to make my career in the jewelry industry. I spent 12 years working in high-end independent jewelry stores, learning everything I could about gems, precious metals, designers and how the industry works. I founded and ran a website in 1998 that helped link thousands of consumers to reputable retailers in their area. Oh, and helped Amazon.com launch their jewelry store in 2004. I even went to so far as to get degrees from the Gemological Institute of America. Which gives me, you know, AUTHORITY.
I can help educate you on what quality gives you the best value, show you the brightest up-and-coming designers, and help you find the most reputable jeweler to actually purchase from. In my career, I have helped many, many people make a great jewelry decision through education, I hope that I can help YOU!
I do not make, sell, or represent any jewelry line. I only accept advertising for specific companies that I feel confident to recommend. Although it would make me happy to be paid in jewelry, I have not been compensated for my reviews: I only recommend designers or retailers that I personally would buy from. Nothing will compromise my content and commitment to my readers.
As of July 2012, I am also the Editor of the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group’s website. CJDG is an organization of independent jewelry design artists who are committed to the highest standards of processes, materials, and ethics in their jewelry design. I will be highlighting these talented artists on idazzle.com from time to time.
Anyway, I am here to help. Please fill out the contact form below if you have jewelry-related questions, are looking for a particular special piece of jewelry, or need a reputable jeweler referral in your area.
