About this Appraiser

Graduate Gemologist Diana Jarrett has enjoyed numerous positions within the jewelry trade. Earning her GG from Gemological Institute of America in 2002, she went on to receive recognition as a Registered Master Valuer (RMV) in the discipline of appraisal studies in 2004.

Assisting a diverse group of frequent bidders at Sotheby's Beverly Hills, CA, at their pre-auction events, Jarrett also deepened her understanding of world class jewels by handling millions of dollars worth of private property from celebrated collections that went into their Magnificent Jewel Auctions.

In 2003, she was contracted by a major US jewelry shopping network to help them develop a laboratory, and process and identify the myriad goods that moved through their facility on a daily basis. She also appeared on their live television broadcasts.

In 2009 her massively revised cameo guide, CAMEOS OLD & New, 4th Edition, by Diana Jarrett, originally written by Anna Miller received numerous accolades at its release at Tucson GemFair that year.

Throughout the years, her mainstay has been to serve both businesses and individual collectors in valuing their jewelry and gemstones. She's a sought after speaker at both consumer and industry events around the country. Her jewelry blog, color-n-ice.blogspot.com has a strong following and continues to be a popular read amongst the trade and consumer.

Realizing an underserved area of need in the gem trade, Jarrett and a colleague established Jewelry Website Designers in 2009 to provide updated websites for their trade members who've been previously unsatisfied with work done by those outside our niche.

A multi-award winning journalist, Jarrett writes for countless trade and consumer publications; all on gem-jewelry related topics. A wide sampling of several genres of her published work is available for download on her website (see the contact link at the top of this page).
