photo_1__2.jpgFort Thomas Jewelers is now GIA certified! We are proud to announce Taylor Benton is our new in-house gemologist! Taylor went all the way out to Carlsbad, California for seven months and completed several rigerous courses at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) including classes in Jewelry Essentials, Graduate Diamonds, Colored Stones, and is now an Accredited Jewelry Professional and a Graduate Gemologist. Fort Thomas Jewelers is one of the very few jewelery stores in the area that has an accredited, on site, gemologist that can tell you what your stone is and if it's real or not. We are currently waiting on all of our new equipment to arrive for her to be able to properly identify your gems, but she is now doing appraisals as well as CAD design. Congratulations, Taylor!
