About Jewelry Navigator

From Gem Lab to the Sky


Jewelry Navigator was inspired by a blend of jewelry and travel careers.



As a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America, I’ve worked in a gem lab and a variety of jewelry stores.

In between, I was as a flight attendant for a commercial airline. I’ve had the privilege of traveling to new places and meeting people from all over.

Soon after starting a family, I grounded my aviation career, and when ready, returned to working in the retail jewelry sector.

What You’ll find here

I appreciate all jewelry, but the jewelers and artists I discover and share through Jewelry Navigator create with freedom from commercial limitations.

Indie jewelry artists featured with Jewelry Navigator bring design and material elements together that resonate with a shopper’s unique style so they can stand out from conventional jewelry selections.

Independent jewelers typically have more opportunities to practice sustainable values that benefit people and environment, from mine to market.
