Kurt is a guild gemologist, a Certified Diamontologist and is DCA certified in color stones.
Kurt says, “What truly keeps me going everyday is the fact I am involved in a purchase that is truly a sentimental decision. I’ve learned that people buy jewelry because they want to do something nice, and I happily share in their experience.” He has developed many long lasting relationships with clients in the past 22 years.
Kurt grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and is an avid St. Louis sports team fan. He confides that when he was younger he wanted to be a professional umpire. “I guess that is where my strong voice comes from.”
Kurt loves to travel and experience new things and new places and typically tries to include a running event during any time away. He started running in 2009 as a way to lose weight and has now notched 11 half marathons with a PR of 1 hour 55 minutes for 13.1 miles!.
Joined GSN: in 2005

Kurt laughingly says that his favorite gemstone is the one the customer buys but, he seriously likes sphenes. He says, “This mineral is really magical, it shows all the different colors of the rainbow and actually has a higher refractive index than a diamond.”
