Kunz recognized for his influence on the jewelry trade

One of the largest international buyers of fine jewelry, Circa, lauds Kunz and his influence of the jewelry trade in advocating for semi-precious stones as a component of fine jewelry:

"Prior to Kunz’s tenure at Tiffany & Co, jewelry houses had favored precious stones in their jewels. He encouraged Tiffany to try new and exciting stones like Alexandrite and Morganite, making “semi-precious” stones more popular than ever. Kunz’s contributions to gemology and Tiffany & Co. have impacted the way that so many stones are viewed by the public. He brought semi-precious stones into the mainstream."
