Stephen came on board in 2013 with his admittedly negligible experience with jewelry (he worked briefly with a "Mall" jewelry store). His quest for jewelry knowledge has been unparalleled, completing the Gemological Institute of America's instructional course with high praise and earning the coverted "Accredited Jewelry Professional" certificate.
Raised near Memphis, in Western Tennessee, he was blessed with his family's emphasis on educational excellence guided by his mother, a teacher. His degree in marketing and his keen interest in superlative customer service and interaction with clients has made for a wonderful combination of energetic ambition to be successful, along with his humble, likable personal demeanor that customers find caring and attractive. Stephen is more than an employee of Estate Jewelry Ltd. He is an important aspect of the future of the business.
Plans are in place for the orderly handover of ownership when Richard Yaffin elects to reduce his involvement and eventually retire. Stephen's plans include furthering his jewelry education including becoming certified as a Graduate Gemologist by means of continued studies at the Gemological Institute of America and he's becoming a diamond and gem expert.
If you enjoy shopping for jewelry, or if you have jewelry you want to sell, you'll benefit from spending some time with Stephen. His newly acquired knowledge and his polite (and enjoyable) demeanor will be of impressive value. As an aside, Stephen delights in college sports, music, bourbon and high-end watches.
