I was born in Tel Aviv in 1966. My mother is Danish, and my father is Israeli. Diamonds have always been an important part of my life. I qualified for my diamond grading certificate in 1991, allowing me to sell diamonds professionally. Soon I discovered a world of jewellery, pearls and other gemstones - a whole new world opened up for me. Since then, I have worked with numerous gemstones. More than 900 varieties have been through my hands in all kinds of beautiful cuts. The fascination with their different characteristics and beautifully combining them in jewellery is the driving force behind my work.
Gems are the wonders of nature. They are created from the intense pressure underneath the Earth's crust, attained by mining or found in river beds. Chemistry and temperature are the determining factors in gemstone colours, explaining why a single kind of gemstone can span a range of different colours. They all have unique characteristics. Composition, colour, transparency, inner structure and optical effects distinguish them from each other. Gemstones are most often cut into beautiful faceted cuts or cabochons, depending on what is most suited for the gemstone.
Since 1991 we have worked with more than 900 different gemstones. Our mission is to share the joy of possessing and wearing precious jewellery with gemstones in all shapes and colours.
