As a third generation owner, Ron stepped right into a leadership position at Samuelson’s Diamonds in 1994. He immediately recognized the power of the newly emerging internet and seized on the opportunity to grow the Samuelson’s business online.
Ron has been featured in The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Magazine’s 40 under 40, and the Wall Street Journal. Having been trained by GIA in diamonds and diamond grading, Ron has also spoken at various jewelry events and trade shows and has often been asked to offer his insights on the diamond market.
Outside of the office, you can find Ron playing classic blues and rock on his Fender Stratocaster or Paul Reed Smith (handmade here in Maryland) guitars in a local jam band. When he’s not playing live music, he’s watching it at one of the many venues across Baltimore.
A graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Ron currently serves on the Board of Directors of The Dr. Michael Feinglass Cancer Foundation and lives in Maryland with his wife and two children.
