Why The Carat Soup?

To connect with fellow gemstone enthusiasts that appreciate natural diamonds, superb craftsmanship and magnificent fine jewels. After my first foray into journalism, later book publishing and studies at the Gemological Institute of America, The Carat Soup was a natural next step. The blog started life on a napkin over supper during the autumn of 2014, with the first post published in January 2015. I’ve since had the pleasure of having contributors from all walks of life. As well as attending various events around the world.


By having a creative space for people who believe in the life-enhancing beauty of gemstones and jewellery, are curious about gem sources and enjoy the fusion of history, science and art.


A blog celebrating #roughdiamonds & outrageously gorgeous #finejewels in our millennial world . Curated by me (Maya), a journalist and jewellery professional. I write industry-specific articles in print, radio and online (including The Library).💎
