Greyhouse Jewelers is an Austin-based jewelry appraisal and consulting company that is owned and operated by jewelry appraiser,
Russell Orms GG (GIA).

With more than 25 years' experience in the jewelry industry, Russell offers a rare combination that includes national custom design shows, appraisals, consulting, retail management, luxury sales, and concept to completion manufacturing. A large portion of his design and manufacturing experience was gathered when he traveled throughout the United States as a consulting jewelry designer for some of the largest luxury jewelers in the nation.

Russell understands that customer convenience is key, so he created a system where he brings the appraisal and design lab directly to you, to your preferred location. You will also find him operating from the stores of select jewelry retailers throughout Texas.

This unique combination has proven to be extremely valuable to Russell's clients. His insight, understanding and passion have allowed him to work successfully with personal clients, retail management, manufacturing companies, and independent jewelers.
