A diamond is 'nice' -- but a color gemstone is a bold expression of who you are.
Gems have the power to define us.
A bold look, a chic style!
The right color jewel creates a magnetic aura unmatched by any diamond.
The power of a gem
"I’ve seen the right gem on the right woman reveal her spirited, magnetic character.
It’s not just fashion. It’s not just style. It’s being bold, a little rebellious, and willing to let the world see you."

If you're looking for something special, or have a special person in mind, you've come to the right place.
Welcome to your new adventure!
Blindingly bright colors!
The quiet whisper of a gem calling out to you in a collection!
The dense gravity of a spinel resting in your hand!
It’s the immediate feeling of the here and now, with a playful twist that awakens our true, inner selves.
That’s because gems dare to make a statement. They dare to show our true selves, no matter the color, and no matter the setting. They force us to go out and have a conversation with the world around us.
For me, there’s no greater feeling than stepping off a boat and walking into a bustling foreign city, not knowing what precious gems may be out there… but only knowing that something special will be found; and that I'll bring it back for the person who was always meant to have it.
The globe is my treasure map, and I follow my instinct for discovering colored stones for you.
Think of me as your private guide through the amazing world of rare colored gems.
Vibrant neon pink, grass green, tangy yellow, pastel shades or deep blue are just a few of the colors out there… each of these gemstones is unique, and they took a long journey to get to you.
I’m the last leg of that journey, traveling to Bangkok, the world hub of fine and special color gemstones.
I cut out the middleman to ensure you get the gem that reflects your own life story - where you’ve been and where you are going.
When it comes to color stone lab testing and certifications, I only work with lab gemologists who have seen thousands of color stones over the course of years. Only their 'eye' is trained enough to be able to give a meaningful and valuable certificate.
Before becoming a gemologist, I was an international lawyer focused on the black-and-white nature of business.
Years flew by in a corporate environment and while I loved my job… a sense of adventure sent me on a different path.
I decided to quit my job and pursue something more enriching.
I've always loved fashion, art, history, design, and color as inspired by the different European countries where I grew up, & lived.
So, I longed for those colors of my youth - a childhood home filled with my mother’s bright flower arrangements, the art of the Dutch masters during (obligatory...) museum visits and the soft pastel glows of the South of France.
That’s when I decided to venture out into the world of gemstones and jewelry.
Immersed in the richness of color and character that Bangkok has to offer, I went over there & studied at AIGS (Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences). It's a leading center of study on the color stone industry, and one of the few places in the world that specializes in ‘hands-on' scientific gemology training.
The boldness, beauty and rarity of the color stones I discovered there, got me hooked.
The gem dealers' authentic stories, their endless enthusiasm for their exceptional 'product', and of course… the beautiful stones themselves, were an impossible combination to resist.
All together these stones crystallized a larger ambition in me, which is ‘always pursue your own color in life, and not settle for ‘black-and-white’.
I believe our jewels can be a much more personal and bold expression of ourselves than the traditional (diamond) jewelry brands.
In the course of 2 years, I took my life from black-and-white to full color.
You, too, have a spectrum of color within you.
There is a chameleon-like beauty that shines through your life, whether it is in love, career, fashion or friendship.
