Welcome to Marsh & Son

Lance Marsh received his Graduate Gemologist designation from the Gemological Institute of America in 1978.  He has been an active jeweller, store owner and insurance appraiser for much of that time since.

For several years he worked as freelance gemologist in Alberta, conducting appraisal clinics for jewellers from Taber, Alberta to Yellowknife, NWT.   More recently Lance was instrumental at GemDex International in Nanaimo before selling in 2007.

Recently, we added another Gemologist to our Staff.  Paul Gorbatuk took his GIA training in California and is a Graduate Gemologist.    Paul comes to us with considerable experience in the jewellery industry having owned a store in Powell River for more than 30 years.

Rita Taylor is a certified diamond appraiser and previously owned Taylor’s Jewellers and Goldsmiths in Woodgrove Mall, Nanaimo.   Prior to moving to Nanaimo,  she was  a co-owner of King’s Fine Jewellery located  in Edmonton.

Matt, our goldsmith  learned the goldsmith trade the old way, spending considerable time in a formal training environment in Toronto.   You never have to worry about substandard work with Matt.  He takes pride in what he does and always produces an excellent product.
