A personal note from Stacey
"Working in a laboratory environment for nearly two decades has provided me with the knowledge and exposure to the latest technology, enhancements, and treatments on the market today. It is my professional goal to provide an informative and personalized experience and to share my passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of fine jewelry and gems with you. I sincerely look forward to working with you"


Many of you know me as a Graduate Gemologist with a love and appreciation for things of beauty. And while gems and jewelry have long been a passion for me, there is another passion I want to talk about here; that is, my love of animals.  After a valiant battle with lymphoma my beloved Mitzi passed.  She was adopted from Valley Stream Cat Rescue.  She was a gentle soul and touched the hearts of many.  Her illness brought me even closer to her and taught me what really matters in life and what is trivial.  She had excellent care and I am grateful for the financial help she received.  I was so moved by their love, support and passion for their work that I have made it a mission of my own by pledging to donate a portion of all Art of Stone sales, or services I provide to their continued efforts. It is a passion I hope you will share by pledging your support in whatever way you can

Please note there are many other charities and organizations I recognize and support, I just wish to acknowledge these right now and thank them again from the bottom of my heart


Stacey's passion for gems and jewelry began in 1983 with a mineral mining expedition and a personal precious gem collection.  She immediately knew that pursuing gemology would lead to a fulfilling career. After completing the Resident Gemology Program at the Gemological Institute of America in New York City In July of 1991, she immediately began the process of earning a Graduate Gemologist Degree.  Once Stacey obtained the GG degree she strategically aligned herself with the G.I.A.'s Gem Trade Laboratory as a Staff Gemologist to advance her skills even further.  
Today Stacey is a dedicated professional serving over 24 years in the jewelry industry. She has been appraising, certifying, and identifying all types of gemstones and jewelry.
Her education pursuit is perpetual and she prides herself in staying abreast of the current market trends.
As a lifelong resident of the New York City area, Stacey enjoys the Arts, Culture, and Lifestyle that only NYC can offer. When Stacey is not working or honing her gemologist skills, she also enjoys her passion for animals. Aside from personally adopting 2 cats form the Valley Stream Cat Rescue, she also donates time and money to organizations such as Frankie's Friends, The Zeus Varis Fund, The Joshua Louis Animal Cancer Foundation ("JLACF") and Valley Stream Cat Rescue.
Currently Stacey resides in the beautiful Forest Hills section of Queens where she embraces the uniqueness of the neighborhood and the always-first-rate dining experiences.
