I enjoy sharing my passion for colored diamonds and gemstones, travel and food from around the world.
Carole has been a resident of Sarasota 11 years and retired from corporate healthcare after 42 years in the nursing profession. She watched the store being designed and soon after opening purchased a strand of pearls which would be the first of many purchases over the next 8 years! Carole would stop in the store regularly and developed a relationship with Greg and Tatiana and the staff over the years. She always joked, sayings he wanted to work at Carats after she retires! Two years later there was a part time position available and she joined the Carats family! She loves people, buying and selling jewelry almost as much as her two golden retriever rescues Molly and Cooper! She is well versed in excellence in customer service!
