“Tania Ivaniouchkina has had a lifelong passion for gems. After a brief career as an engineer in her native country of Ukraine and 20 years as a high school teacher in Toronto, Tania found her true calling in Gemmology. She became a fellow of the Canadian Gemmological Association, where she remains an active member, organizing and attending monthly meetings, and volunteering at gem shows where she promotes and represents the CGA.
She is passionate about Victorian jewellery, phenomenal stones and cameos in particular, and is working on her collection. Her favourite stone is opal and she hopes to one day visit the opal mine in Kuber Pedy, Australia.”
