My true passion has always been diamonds and jewellery. Since I can remember, I have always taken keen interest in diamonds. I would find myself mesmerized by their beauty and rarity when researching the formation process and their characteristics. Upon commencing my university studies, I wanted to study jewellery design, but realizing that the market was over crowded at that point, I opted for my second love, wine. I graduated BSc Agric Viticulture and Oenology; needless to say that my favourite subject was soil science. My soul, however, was not quenched by wine alone. During my winemaking studies, I assisted numerous couples with engagement rings, by acquiring the diamond of their dreams, but within their budget. It became apparent that I was only truly content when working with diamonds and jewellery. I was able to start this platform with the strong relationships I had built in the industry through my father-in-law, who started a gold refinery in 2005 and has been in the industry for more than 20 years.
