March 21, 2018, CNBC’s The Secret Lifestyles of the Super Rich television show featured Joe in a segment showing a highly important pair of seven-figure diamond ear
clips that Joe was delivering to a Park Avenue billionaire client, along with other select important pieces from his collection, at the uber-elegant Baccarat Hotel in New York City.
A second segment was filmed in May 2018 in Joe’s Dallas office. It showcased a three-tiered Valrhona chocolate cake by famed chef Connie Mullins, adorned with over
$28,000,000.00 worth of emerald and diamond jewelry. The client allowed his wife to come and select a couple of pieces to make up for an indiscretion on his part!
