Our knowledge of the gemstones
we feature in our designs comes from our extensive travels to the gem mines
farms and gold
factories. There we gain a firsthand understanding about the origins of these pieces. We also learn what processes bring them to our hands. We then pair these first-hand experiences with scholastic knowledge gained through studies at GIA (the Gemological Institute of America). In addition, we receive further accreditation through associations and societies, such as AGS (American Gem Society) and AGTA (American Gem Trade Association). This helps regulate the credentials, understanding, and ethics of jewelry stores around the world.
