Professional Bio
 

Eitan is Coordinator of Educational Programing for PGSL. He has worked as a gemologist for PGSL since 2006, grading and identifying diamonds and precious stones for the laboratory. He is fascinated by the ancient trade routes that brought gemstones to the world and how the distribution channel changed during the course of the 20th Century. This fascination with the international dimension of the gemstone trade propelled him to seek a master’s degree in international affairs. He has traveled extensively and continues to do so for the company.
