Sam has nearly 40 years of experience in the jewelry industry; half of which has been spent here with GSN as a show host.
Before his career began at GSN, Sam was an appraiser and auctioneer. Sam also catered to the rich and famous as a jewelry store owner in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, and one of his favorite clients was National Football League great, Joe Namath, who was a weekly visitor to his establishment.
On Sam’s shows, he invites you to travel back in time. You can expect to see estate jewelry from every jewelry period, and you are sure to learn something new about jewelry history. He frequently features Victorian and Art Deco period pieces, and his passion for antique jewelry always leads him to something he's never seen before. Rediscovering forgotten time periods and jewelry designs of the past is "the treasure" of his work efforts.
Sam is originally from Red Bank, New Jersey but has spent most of his career in Florida. In his free time, Sam enjoys the great outdoors and retreats to the mountains of beautiful North Carolina.
