Although gemologist Linda Adler has designed jewelry for soap stars, it's antique jewelry and its history that intrigues her. Adler has dealt in estate jewelry for the past 26 years. She says she can identify what jewelry is made from, but has to research its history.
Adler's inventory is wide-ranging from seven carat rose-cut diamond earrings valued at well over $20,000 to turn-of-the-century, "paste" jewelry, valued into the hundreds.
Adler travels extensively in her search for rare estate jewelry and while she looks for quality rather than for trends. She does say that turquoise, coral and amber are favorites from the past making a big comeback.
Adler says that life is never boring with her work, travel and friends. A native of Marshall, she says that being back home is even better than the bright lights of the Big Apple.
