But it’s not just flexibility and friendliness that have made Greg’s studio an Oakdale, MN favorite. The store offers the expert knowledge possessed by Jean Hoerth who is a graduate gemologist from the nationally recognized Gemological Institute of America.
“I do appraisals and can accurately identify stones,” states Jean. “As a graduate gemologist, I have the necessary training to assess what your item is and what it’s worth. We use up-to-date software to stay current with all industry standards.”
Jean is the rare combination of goldsmith and graduate gemologist – “Typically, there aren’t too many of us who are both graduate gemologists and goldsmiths,” she says.
