Owner: Gems Glorious
JHJ’s Jason Brim started his “career” in gems at the early age of 3 when he began collecting rocks from a Kmart parking lot. His parent were keen to engage his natural interests, so they did a lot of rock hounding things.
Jason was 12 when he cut his first stone, a cabochon. At 15, his parents bought him a Raytech Shaw faceting machine,which he practically wore out from cutting gems. At 16, Jason became the youngest person ever to work in the Rich’s Department Store diamond department as a seasonal worker during Christmas. After he graduated from high school, he worked for the now defunct Service Merchandise in the fine jewelry department.
Jason left the trade for several years to study to become a priest, and graduated from seminary. However, it was not to be, due to health and other issues, and he eventually found his way back to gems and jewelry in 2002.
Since then, he has been selling loose colored gems primarily to the trade. and is currently enrolled in GIA taking the AJP course.
