February: Groundhogs, Presidents &Appraisals


February has whizzed on by, with loads and loads of appraisals at work. We even have an upcoming roadtrip to appraise an entire estate of jewelry. In the meantime, I’ve been having fun playing with the refractometer and taking RI’s. I’ve also just signed up for my Colored Stones Grading Lab in Carlsbad, California. Hopefully I will be seeing some of the same faces from my Diamond Grading Lab class I took last June. The jewelry that I’m wearing below is as follows:

  • Laura Tedesco L’Infinita ring with diamond on middle finger
  • Fish Head elongated ring, Bear Claw design on index finger
  • Edwardian diamond ring in platinum and yellow gold, from Precious & Rare Pieces
  • Boyfriend watch
  • Black suede braided bracelet, from my sister found in Venice Beach
