As a GIA gemologist, Tim's additional passion to Independent Watchmaking, are beautiful gemstones. Having been active in trading in them for over 25 years, he has had some true rarities pass through his hands, including Kashmir sapphires, the rarest of the blues and most highly prized by knowledgeable collectors the world over. Burmese rubies as well as a variety of superb natural colored (Unheated) Fancy sapphires and more recently several brilliant Spinels. Our search for rare & great colored gems continues, as the worlds royal familes and ultra wealthy have always prized and collected rare and valuable gemstones, as a protection of wealth and their ability to transfer family wealth for future generations to enjoy and or cash in!
We collaborate with our master goldsmiths to create bespoke and typically one of a kind jewels, using fine diamonds and 18K gold and platinum for the metalsmithing. These are one off pieces, but if you see something you love, but prefer a different color main stone, contact us and we can help you create a ring of your dreams.
