I am a New Zealand geologist who came to Thailand Rock climbing after selling my house. I did, eventually tire of this and decided to pursue a career in Gemology. I completed a GIAGG on Thailand campus in early 2005. During my weekends I would travel from Bangkok to Chanthaburi to buy gems and learn about gemstone trading in the real world, where I have been every since.
I personally check and verify every gem I sell and I offer a 100% money back guarantee. I now travel between Bangkok, Chanthaburi, Burma, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. I therefore can personally purchase quality gems at wholesale prices. I am very reliable and honest with an enormous desire to make my customers content with their purchases. I speak reasonable Thai and French and have travelled extensively throughout Southeast Asia. I do still go back to New Zealand and live in Wanaka where skiing, climbing and mountain biking have been my passions. I am now torn between my love for Gemstones and the stone business and a love of nature. Somehow I wish to make them blend.
