About Me again.

About me

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. Exif_JPEG_PICTUREI completed a GIAGG on Thailand campus in early 2005.GIACert me-graduating-gia-(shopped)-with-me-on-shirt 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, 20130628_045211climbing 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.
