Edward Blomgren, Your Personal, Friendly, Independent Gemologist for Those Important Gem & Jewelry Purchases You Want To Be Sure Of !

Question: Do you really want to spend many thousands of dollars on a jewel - like an engagement ring - and not know whether the quality you're getting matches the price you're paying?
To a jewelry seller, if you don't ask the right questions, if you SIGNAL THAT YOU don' know gem markets and prices intimately, then you give the go-ahead for sellers to increase their margins or be unwilling to negotiate. That 's SOP in the gem world.
Do you want an expert, unbiased, opinion on your 3 or 4 choices? Would you like guidance on how to buy an engagement ring - smartly?
You must understand that the gem and jewelry world is a complex, often arcane, profit-driven one that realizes most people know little about gem values and markets. This works to their advantage, not yours.
Gemologist-appraisers approach purchases very, very differently, and can suss out good and bad deals.
I'll give you truly independent, unbiased viewpoints - because I'm neither buying or selling - I'm you're advocate.
