Bryan has been a member of the Gold Rush staff since 2010. Since becoming a member of the team he has graduated from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) with an Accredited Jewelry Professional certification. Bryan is an apprentice goldsmith and excels at finding the best possible jewelry piece for your budget. Bryan has extensive training in diamonds, and would be happy to assist in teaching you all you need to know about diamonds before your purchase, and maintaining them after you take them home. In his spare time away from the store, you will mostly find Bryan on the lake fishing, in the woods bird and deer hunting, or strumming strings on a guitar! With a birthday in May, it comes as no surprise that his favorite gemstone is emerald!
