Traveling for a Living
One of the most exciting thing about being a gem dealer is the traveling. Imagine being paid to do what you love and meet a large cross section of people from around the world!
And despite the vast distances we travel and the remote areas we visit, buying stones can be alot of fun!
I've been to over 50 countries so far hunting for new gems, staying at cockroach infested hotels (yes it is not all glamour) and at times hamming it up at a 5 star hotel.
I would never trade this for the world. This is my life and livelihood. - Yvonne Jiew
