H: Diaries – Episode: 2 Inside The Gemstone Industry

Inside the Gem Industry

Words by Christina Chi via @handbagdiaries

Gemstones is the meeting of history, art and science: in one industry – and to have that is phenomenal!

– Maya

This week I sit down with Maya MK who has a fancy job title as a Mineral Wealth Economist!

In a nutshell she advises on the purchase or sale of gemstones such as emeralds and amethysts for private clients. And if you need a mine? She is the one you need to be looking for.

On this weeks podcast episode we talk about:

– How she got her start in this industry?
– The importance of keeping design authenticity
– Sustainability and why there seems to be a lack of female participation in this industry.
She also shares advice for anyone that is interested in pursuing the gemstone world and talks about starting her jewelry line
