Mark Pharo began his journey into the jewelry business in 1975 serving first as an apprentice, then as a diamond grader and continued his education by traveling the world to the most remote areas learning the business from the mines to 5th Avenue.

In the early '80's he was introduced in to the world of colored gemstones.  It was "love at first sight".  At that time, there were very few dealers outside of New York who had the passion and desire to pursue gems other than diamonds.  In no time, he was entrenched in the various jungles of the world soaking up all that he could on rubies, sapphires and emeralds.  The other stones just fell into place.  Today, as a leading world expert, he is often contacted by other dealers for his impression of a rare and beautiful stone.
