Jason is proudly carrying on the legacy of being the 5th generation line of jewelers. He is an Accredited Jewelry Professional (AJP), Certified Sales Associate (CSA), and is currently working towards his G.G. ( Graduate Gemologist).
As a boy, Jason would visit the store and look over his grandfather's shoulder. Jason quickly realized his passion for the business. He made it his mission to spread his knowledge and love for gemology and fine watches as seen by his huge following at ;Jason The Gemologist on Instagram . Jason's desire to honor his family legacy while infusing his own brand of millennial-driven strategy has been a tremendous asset to the growth of Venus Jewelers.
Jason's method is to work hand in hand with clients to create works of art that honor the most important moments of their lives. He says, “I want everyone to know jewelry is not only an adornment. It can become part of the wearer’s life story, help express their individuality, and represent milestones in their lives.”
