Angel Garcia is a native San Diegan, born and raised in Pacific Beach. Unlike most gemologists, he didn’t grow up with a family history in jewelry or gemstones. However, he was always fascinated by the sciences, such as astronomy and geology. After attending and graduating from the GIA headquarters in Carlsbad California, Angel found a position as the first gemologist here at Cal Gem Labs. He takes pride in everything he does here at Cal Gem Labs no matter how big or small. His hard work and dedication to the gemology process makes him a valuable asset to the company.
