    An Excerpt From The Article

    “I wanted to feature refreshing, surprising, beautiful alternative gems, such as salt and pepper diamonds, champagne diamonds, teal sapphires, and spinels. I also wanted some of the designers that I admire to have an additional outlet for selling their stunning jewelry. That’s how Gem Breakfast, my online store, was born.”
