About the Author
Robyn has had an interest in jewelry and gemology since she was a child, and has made this her professional focus and career. A former paralegal, she enjoys writing and is excited about combining her appreciation for all things gemological with observations on the industry, trends, and her favorite subject, antique jewelry. Like many women, Robyn admires diamonds, but is especially interested in those unique stones you don’t see every day – like Alexandrite for example. Robyn loves the idea that jewelry often represents special times in people’s lives – whether it be a gold charm received for high school graduation, an engagement ring, an object bought on an amazing vacation, or a gift given after the birth of a child – and that these special pieces can be treasured for life and then passed on, bringing all new special moments.
