Danielle has been a jewelry collector since she was four years old, but can officially say that her career in the jewelry business started in 2008 when she first began her successful blog, Gem Gossip. The jewelry blog focuses on jewelry trends, antique and period jewelry, celebrity jewelry, as well as exclusive designer interviews. It is also a hub for gemstone and jewelry education, considering Danielle’s graduate gemologist studies through the Gemological Institute of America. You can find Danielle sitting behind a microscope and appraising jewelry for Walton’s Antique Jewelry, as her full-time job, where she has been under the apprenticeship of Michael Walton for three years. She recently was mentioned in InStyle magazine by her jewelry aspiration, Marion Fasel. Her hopes for the future include a successful jewelry line and a book documenting her vast collection.
