Cristina Yanez - AJP
Cristina Yanez knew many years ago she wanted to have a career at JTV. One day while flipping through the television channels, she stumbled across JTV and it was love at first sight. At the time, Cristina was working at a local jewelry store in North Carolina and was blown away with the concept of being able to share her love for beautiful jewelry, not only with a small handful of people, but with customers all across the United States.
Wanting a change of pace, Cristina moved to New York City where she was discovered by JTV. Now the rest is history in the making. A big city girl at heart, Cristina is always out and about, exploring the happenings in Knoxville and surrounding cities. She is a lover of Jesus, family, friends and a great cup of coffee.
My Favorite Gemstones
Blue Spinel and Diamond
"Blue spinel is bright, vivid and has incredible sparkle. I love the electric cobalt blue color. It makes me feel sassy! And then let’s not forget that diamonds are a girl’s best friend as well!”
