A little about me,
A Mumbai based Gemologist and Jewellery Production Professional, I grew up in a city bursting with color, culture, and creativity. Therefore it isn’t a surprise exploring Mumbai and all it’s many hidden wonders my curiosity drew towards the fascinating world of diamonds and gemstones. At the age of seventeen, my keen eye for detail quickly fell in love with the story each gemstone narrated and that’s where my journey with these beauties began.
Trained with the best at the GIA, Mumbai and SSEF, Switzerland, I have professionally undertaken assignments to grade diamonds and color grade and identify gems. Together, with my training and experience and a strong foundation in this niche field has allowed me to make key observations on the value and quality of each gemstone.
My passion is undeniable and in order to broaden my horizons, I travel to many countries, visiting jewellery shows, jewellers, and gem traders, picking up some of the best-guarded trade secrets. In addition to shows, I even travel the world looking for some of nature’s marvellous gems. From Spinels on the busy streets in Myanmar, bargaining with ladies for Beryls in Madagascar, I have even spent time hunting down the perfect Sapphire in Srilanka and some Jade in China. I continue to fuel my deep-rooted interest for these special stones by seeking out precious one-of-a-kind gems around the world.
I now live between Jaipur, one of the largest gemstone hubs to the world and Mumbai, a cosmopolitan city watching, grading and checking gemstones and jewellery on a daily basis.
Through this website “The Gemstone Queen”, I explore gemstones in everyday life, through jewellery, fashion, astrology and everywhere else.
