After earning an IT degree from West Sydney University in Australia in 2011, I worked as an IT expert in various companies. During that time, I came to realize that I share the same passion for jewelry that my family has always had. That is when I decided to change my carrier into the world of jewelry.
In the process of this transition, I have earned a degree in gemology, gemstone cutting and polishing. Using that knowledge and technology, I was able to successfully open our own jewelry shop, PRESTIGE GEMS, with my father, Dakshita and Mr. Otsuki.
I love meeting new people, and I also value each and every meeting, so I would love to meet you and help you to find your special gems.

That is why we can deliver excellent one-of-a-kind jewelry. It ’s our pride even though we are a small company.
