The Gem Merchant by David Stanley Epstein

David Stanley Epstein's first edition of The Gem Merchant was great, but as anyone in the gem trade knows, the only thing constant is change! Here Epstein has done a thorough update which is an even more valuable resource than the first edition. Not only is this a book that should be read by someone interested in becoming a gem dealer (or rather, a successful gem dealer) but it is equally valuable for those who are simply interested in knowing more about gemstones and understanding the marketplace. It may be a compact book in terms of its size, but it provides extensive information on the gemstones themselves, and how to judge their quality and market desirability. After reading this book, not only will you become a more savvy buyer, but you'll avoid many costly mistakes and pitfalls along the way.
