Lots of new people here, so hey I’m Danielle — creator of @gemgossip a blog about fine jewelry both old & new. I started Gem Gossip back in July of 2008 when I moved for the first time in my life and didn’t have a job...or a car...or much of anything. Just a huge love for jewelry and a computer full of saved jewelry websites.
Since then, I’ve worked as an appraiser, went to GIA and earned a Graduate Gemology degree, and traveled the world searching out the best jewelry stores & designers covering 22 states (and a couple foreign countries). #jewelryroadtrip
I started the hashtag #showmeyourrings actually back before Instagram existed and collected photos of people wearing TONS of rings on their hands, publishing them on my blog.
I know how hard finding your life’s passion can be or finding the right job. I struggled finding a job when I first moved to Tennessee, so job hunting is near and dear to me. That’s why I started @jewelryjobs an Instagram account that posts jobs in the jewelry industry.
I’ve put most of my focus on selling antique & estate jewelry in the last few years over on @shopgemgossip since having my son in 2019 & not being able to travel bc of the C word.
Anyway, just want to say THANKS for all your support through it all - it means a lot to me.
I’m curious how you found my page or when you started following, so let me know in the comments below. 😁
