Caroline Ervin is a jewelry specialist, gemologist, auctioneer and media personality.
Growing up in rural New England, Caroline Ervin formed an early appreciation for art and antiques, while attending local auctions with her grandparents. After studying Art History at Colorado College, Caroline worked at various auction houses, always fascinated by the excitement and intensity of this transparent form of selling. She realized that jewelry was the specialty area where she belonged after witnessing the historic auction of Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry while working in a support department at Christie's. Caroline then began working toward her Graduate Gemologist degree at the GIA, and landed a job in the renowned Christie's Jewelry Department. Rising the ranks from a cataloguer to a Specialist and Associate Vice President at Christie's, Caroline also became an auctioneer for the company, selling everything from multi-million dollar contemporary paintings, to space memorabilia, and presiding over such landmark auctions as The Collection of Lee Bouvier Radziwill and The David Gilmour Guitar Auction.
Caroline is currently an on-air guest expert for Affinity Gems and Affinity Cultured Pearls on QVC.
She shares her favorite jewels, from the antique to the contemporary, via her Instagram page.
