Character Bio

Gavin photo
"The Gem Expert." Gavin is a gemstone adventurer and writer. The team's resident gem expert, Gavin has traveled extensively to mining centers and gem markets in Asia, South America and Africa. This experience, coupled with a love of adventure, makes Gavin a solid asset in the field and he is often called upon by the team for his outdoors and orienteering expertise.

Holding a bachelor of science degree, Gavin's experience is in the hunting, buying, lapidary and selling of gemstones. Gavin is the author of two gemstone books: "Guide to Gems & Jewelry," (translated into four languages and published in five editions) and "The Clever Gem Buyer," soon to be in its third edition (and also published in German and Italian).

Gavin's "first contact" with gemstones happened when he was about 10 years old, courtesy of a small water-filled container of Opal tailings given to him by an aunt. Gavin's professional love affair with gemstones started over 15 years ago under the shadow of Khao Ploi Waen, "the mountain of gemstone rings" in Chanthaburi, Thailand, an international center for colored gemstones.
