Senior Gemologist, Jewelry and Watches
Samira Mazloom is a Specialist in Freeman’s Jewelry and Watches department, where she puts her gemology, marketing, advertising, and business development skills and past experience to work in appraising, authenticating, and evaluating works. As the third generation of jewelers in her family, Samira’s love for jewelry is instinctive; she started collecting gemstones at a very young age, and her initial official involvement in the jewelry industry was accompanying her father as an interpreter on his business trips all around the world.
Prior to joining Freeman’s in 2022, Samira obtained her BA in Jewelry Design at university in London, and later moved to New York in 2014 to study gemology at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). During her nearly six years at GIA, she had the privilege of training numerous graduates who were in the jewelry business for multiple generations. This experience—as well as attending jewelry auctions throughout New York City—gave her more in-depth insight into mining, gem and diamond cutting, manufacturing, and other parts of the industry.
