About Jason Middleton.

I have recently started my own company supplying the jewellery market with loose and finished gemstones specialising in pearls and semi-precious stones. I have and continue to travel extensively to source these items internationally. For many years now I have undertaken many talks on the subject of Gemstones to groups including Probus, U3A ,WI, Friendship groups and have passed several speaker auditions.References can be provided should one wish.
