Carly Morris - GIA GD, AJP, and Graduate Gemologist Candidate

Carly's passion for fine jewelry sparked in 2015 when friends and family members began asking for guidance when purchasing engagement rings and gifts. She began researching the industry and sketching in her spare time. After producing her first engagement ring and designing her own class ring, she was hooked.

Upon graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Carly took a position at a national jewelry store to learn more about the fine jewelry industry. There, she quickly rose to a management level position and obtained her Diamond Council of America Diamontologist Certification. Over time, she began craving greater design freedom and closer relationships with her clients. After a year, she resigned from the company and founded ECM Gems. Carly now enjoys complete creative freedom and continues to demystify the industry for her clients.

Carly has had the privilege of helping hundreds of clients navigate the custom design and jewelry selection process. Whether she is advising gift giving, sourcing stones, or creating a completely customized design, no question is too small and no project is too big. Carly's greatest joy comes from being an advocate and educator for her clients, so their dream of fine jewelry can become a reality.

To better help her clients, Carly has chosen to further her diamond and gemstone education at the Gemological Institute of America. There she has attained her Applied Jewelry Professional certification and is currently pursuing the GIA's Graduate Gemology degree, one of the most prestigious credentials in the industry.
