What you do at NSC: I am the 2nd generation in our family business. My father Walter created the company in 1939 after having an opportunity to sell star sapphires and white zircons, which were very popular at the time. He was one of the first traders of loose sapphires in the New York gem market. I joined the company in the mid 1970's and greatly improved our lapidary services. We pride ourselves on excellent cutting. Our sapphires are cut with great attention to detail and quality. There is a lot of pride and passion involved with working with rare sapphires in a 70 year old family business.
Hobbies: The sun, sand, ocean, swimming, my terrier and sailboats. What else could be better? Oh yes, sapphires.
