Right place, right time is the best way to describe Ron Samuelson’s experience in the diamond business. Although he stepped right into a leadership position in his family’s 90 year old diamond business, the fact that he did this in the early 90’s, just as the internet was emerging, offered him a unique opportunity. He immediately saw the power of online marketing as a way of helping him elevate his game and become a force in Baltimore’s diamond landscape. By leveraging his knowledge of diamonds and his understanding of all things digital – website, social networking, blogging and email – he has helped Samuelson’s Diamonds become the area’s leader in diamond buying and selling. Ron also launched Samuelson’s Buyers in 2010 which has four unique jewelry buying offices in high end shopping districts in the Washington DC/Baltimore area.
Ron started the Facebook Diamonds Fan Page, with over 1.5 million Diamond Fans interacting every day. He has been featured in Baltimore Magazine’s 40 under 40, The Baltimore Sun and profiled in the Wall Street Journal. He has been trained by GIA in diamonds and diamond grading.
Ron serves on the Board of Directors of The Dr. Michael Feinglass Cancer Foundation and lives in Maryland with his wife and two children.
