Michael Abraham’s background in gems started at an early age. His parents, avid mineral collectors, brought him on their domestic adventures in search of earths treasures. Some of his earliest memories involve helping his parents dig, sift, and break rocks, all for the pursuit of beautiful crystals. His parents collected minerals purely for hobby, but growing up in an environment, with gems and minerals to play with, planted the seed of a future career.
After graduating from NYU –Stern School of business, and then spending a few years working in aerospace in Germany, Michael moved to Bangkok to begin his life in gems. He completed his GIA graduate gemologist (G.G.) in 2003, and then began working with stones. Being in Bangkok, one of the great gem cutting centers in the world, expanded his horizons as to the gems he had learned about.
Since becoming a gemologist, Michael has traveled the world in search of stones for his jewelry collections, private clients, and the wholesale trade. He is currently based in New York, but continues to travel regularly to far flung places around the world, in search of precious gems.
