Anthony DeMarco is a freelance writer and editor who travels the world covering the jewelry and watch industry. I currently work as a lifestyle correspondent and “resident jewelry expert” for Forbes.com, I cover the U.S. jewelry market for JewelryNetAsia, a Hong Kong-based Web portal, and I contribute to the Financial Times Watches & Jewellery special reports. In addition, Anthony owns and operates the Jewelry News Network blog, which serves as a window into the international jewelry and watch industry. Prior to working in the jewelry industry, I was a senior editor for an interior design and architecture magazine. I began my career as an award-winning newspaper reporter where I broke stories involving government corruption, racial bias and the abusive practices of judges and other officials.
