FRANK CIRCELLI, GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST
Founder and President of Bellagem, Inc.
Mr Circelli’s passion for colored gemstones started as a child with a love for minerals, fossils and natural sciences. Later in life and after obtaining his gemological degree, Mr Circelli was personally trained by one of the best senior gem cutters in America. Soon after, he began building his gemstone business and traveled to the most remote areas of the earth to buy rough directly from the mine owners. This often put him in life-threatening situations and in volatile environments. In 1984, he started cutting his own gemstones and built a wholesale business with a passion to educate jewelers and to establish industry-accepted wholesale pricing levels.
As an innovator in the field of gemology, Mr Circelli launched the first and original colored gemstone show on television, “Gemstones with Frank” over 20 years ago; specializing in rare gemstones. Always striving for perfection, he was motivated to create a Shopping channel based on three principles: Honesty, Integrity and Education:”The Gem Shopping Network”. Mr Circelli recently sold GSN and continues to share his knowledge and passion for gems thru his wholesale company Bellagem.
