Elizabeth Kaufman began her jewelry career at an early age. She remembers spending time with her grandfather, sorting diamond melee when she was only eight-years old. Her passion grew throughout her teens as she worked for her grandfather in his jewelry manufacturing facility. "I hold the jewelry industry dear. I have a great fondness for the lore, the legends, and the stories of the industry; they've been handed down to me by my grandfather”. Elizabeth continued working in different facets of the industry, including product development and design, which led her to pursue diamond and jewelry buying. For the next 15 years she developed an eye for diamonds and diamond buying. "I knew for some time that I wanted to work for CIRCA. I wanted to work with buyers that knew about the history of jewelry, and its value. I've been fortunate to learn from the best. I am continuing my education every day, learning about turn-of-the-century pieces, and the people who have worn, loved, and passed these heirlooms down”. Elizabeth joined CIRCA in 2016 as a Buyer for our New York City Headquarters, and now manages our newest Florida location as Buyer for our Sunny Isles office. Elizabeth received her Graduate Gemologist designation from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and brings over 15 years of experience across the jewelry industry.
