About

4th generation in gemstone business

Way way back in 1908 my great grand father was a college student in Vienna, Austria. His Father wanted him to follow in what had been the family foot steps and be a Doctor by my great grand father wanted to be an artist and adventurer. So he was more or less dis-inherited.
Great-grand papa now had to pay his way thru college so he set off with a friend traveling from Austria to Africa & then Ceylon & Kashmir to purchase sapphires and rare stones taking them back to Europe & reselling. This lead to a life long passion & business for rare stones and jewelry design & making. My grandfather followed in his footsteps and then my Mother. My mother meet and fell in love with a red haired freckled face 1st generation Scottish- American who was visiting Vienna on a college break. They married and lived in Austria & Germany until finally moving back to USA after having 6 children when I was just 2 years old. I am the youngest of the brood.
I have keep up with the family business of gemstones. All but 2 of my siblings are either designers or stone dealers. My father , who was not born in the business of gemstones married into it. He specializes in sourcing the very finest sapphires, rubies, tourmalines, opal and rarities.
I have a partner studio in Jaipur who cuts and makes about 80% of the beads I offer. We recently opened a buying office in Hong Kong which will be fully operated in mid-2014. I also design & make a collection of fine jewelry along with my boyfriend which debuted in May of 2013. We have a showroom for our jewelry in NYC. We currently do not offer the jewelry on etsy. We do have a website for our jewelry. Message me if interested. I design the jewelry at my studio in Los Angeles and have it made in my partner studio in Jaipur. Presently it is available in Japan, Europe and the North East.
