RAPAPORT... Robyn Hawk, who authored a number of blogs on the jewelry industry, passed away on July 16 at the age of 63 following a stroke. 

Dubbing herself a “serial blogger,” Hawk, who graduated from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in 2009 with a degree in gemology, diamonds, colored stones and pearls, wrote for the Tucson Gem Show and posted articles on the jewelry industry in her blogs, A Fly on the Wall and The Daily Jewel.

“Robyn was truly wowed by all the creative people she met, those in mining, gemstone cutters, jewelers, collectors and more,” her mother and sister wrote on her Facebook page. “She was always excited to learn more and then to share and promote this world on her many blogs.”

Hawk’s Facebook followers weighed in as well. “I can hardly believe this, truly, our world has a huge hole,” said one, while another wrote, “I am indebted to Robyn for the many contributions she made to…our website…. More than that, she was a friend and confidant, and one of the beautiful humans in my life.”

She is survived by her younger sister, Dawn, her mother, Maureen, and her partner, Bobby.
