founder of diamond explainer

As a Graduated Gemologist, Sandra always felt that there is nothing quite like the feeling of holding one of these precious gems in her hand and watching as it catches the light and sparkles with a radiance that is unmatched by any other precious stone.

With their mesmerizing shine and glitter, diamonds have captured the hearts and imaginations of people for centuries. Sandra is no exception. Her fascination with diamonds was the initial inspiration for her to start Diamond Explainer and share her experience and her love for diamonds with our readers.
