Allow Me To Introduce Myself…Jourdan Block, Gemologist

Hello, my name is Jourdan Block and I would like to start my new blog by explaining my current situation.  I am presently a GIA student in the process of completing my Graduate Gemology degree and thought it would be fun to essentially create a blog to highlight my learning experiences as I journey into the jewelry industry.  I have recently opened a jewelry salon, SHR Jewelry Associates LLC,  with my partner who, unlike me, has nearly 40 years of experience in the industry.  My knowledge is being molded from many various resources and I like to think of my experience as being similar to the metaphor, “a diamond in the rough,” as cliché as that may sound.
