Meet Mike

Mike started his career as an auctioneer in 1976 and began working in a high-end auction gallery with fine jewelry in 1980. During his 21 years with the Gem Shopping Network, Mike has become well known for his colorful Hawaiian and western shirts and the much anticipated “Deal of the Day” during every show he hosts.

When you tune in to see the Jewelry Extravaganza, you can expect a wide variety of merchandise at every price point including designer jewelry, estate, close-outs, as well as exquisite custom-made jewelry that you will never find in a retail jewelry store.

In addition to his auctioneer and hosting skills, Mike has been a Nashville Recording Artist recording 10 albums including 2 with the Jordanaires, Elvis’s backup vocal group! Mike also dedicates his free time to hosting charity auctions throughout the year for multiple causes.

Favorite Quote

Mike clearly loves the William Tell Overture which he uses to introduce his "deal of the day" for every show.

MIKE'S FAVORITE GEMSTONES

Mike has had the privilege of being the face and voice behind the introduction of the new find in Oregon! The Oregon Copper Bearing Sunstone which has become one of his favorite gemstones.
Tsavorite Garnet

Tsavorite Garnet

A member of the garnet family this stone is relatively new on the gemological scene. A deposit was found in 1967 by a British gem prospector in northeast Tanzania. This vivid green stone is believed to be 200 times more rare than emerald. It was also found in nearby Kenya in 1971 by the same prospector who was granted a permit to mine it. The public was introduced to the stone by Tiffany and Co in 1974. The only other place it is found on the planet is Madagascar.

Sunstone

Sunstone is a gem-quality member of the feldspar family and is famed for its aventurescence, often referred to as 'schiller'. Sunstone is typically orange to reddish in color and its spangled appearance is reminiscent of the sun, hence its name 'sunstone'. The spangles can be red in color or more rarely green or blue which is caused by light reflections from tiny hematite or goethite platelets. Some of the more significant, notable deposits come from India, Canada, Madagascar, Norway, Russia and the USA (Oregon, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Utah). Oregon is famous for producing sunstone included with traces of copper, and named it the state’s official gemstone.

Tanzanite

Tanzanite

This blue/purple gemstone was first discovered in 1967 in northern Tanzania at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Officially called blue zoisite it was marketed as tanzanite by Tiffany & Co. who wanted to capitalize on the rarity of this gem that is only found in Tanzania. Tanzanite is the only gem discovered in the last 100 years that has been added to the birthstone list, as a December birthstone.
