Starting from when I was a school age girl, various tests have indicated that I am one of those individuals who have fairly symmetrical brain hemispheres.  Perhaps that explains why with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley, then a Master's Degree in International Relations and Management from the University of California, San Diego, I decided to to pursue my passion of Jewelry Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and, lastly, culminating in my pride and joy of  a Graduate Gemologist Degree from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

With the importance of balancing design and value in mind, I understand that a truly extraordinary piece of jewelry for the discerning connoisseur is about the artistry of design and craftsmanship as well as about the value of the gemstones.  For this reason, not only is each piece painstakingly hand-crafted by master craftsman, but only the rarest gemstones, including my personal favorite - natural fancy colored diamonds, are used in my jewelry.  With prior experiences at the Jewelry Department of Christie’s Auction House and later as a manager at a Swiss-based jeweler on Madison Avenue, New York, I  have worked with clients with the most refined taste and have access to the most exclusive & rare top quality gemstone cutters in the world.  I personally choose each gemstone that goes into a piece of jewelry created specific for a client.

Born in Taipei, raised in California, lived in Tokyo & Paris, I am currently based in New York City, where I work closely with an exclusive international clientele creating unique pieces with utmost personalized service.  I travel to Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo, London & Paris to meet with clients on a regular basis.  Please  contact me for my travel schedule.  In addition to English, I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese & French.
