Pawanya founder of Gems Excellence color gemstone jewelry brand

The brand

My name is Pawanya and I am a designer and founder of Gems Excellence. I grew up around gemstones from an early age. In 1991 my parents founded a gemstone company specialized in manufacturing precision-cut rubies and sapphires. I was always fascinated by the rainbow of stunning colors that these gems displayed as well as the hard work and love that went into creating beautiful gems from rough stones.

After studying in the UK and Switzerland, I decided to fulfill my dream of designing fine jewelry. I wanted to differentiate myself from other designers with my knowledge of not only the design aspect but also of the beautiful gems themselves. I spent hours every day in my family business assorting and grading gemstones by color, clarity, and size. I also attended the prestigious Gübelin Academy to hone my gemmological credentials. In 2014, I founded Gems Excellence with a mission to create excellent bespoke jewelry accessible for women across the world. In 2016 fate would further strengthen my relationship to gemstones when I married my husband who comes from a family of emerald dealers with a history of over 200 years in the industry.

I create every individual design with passion and enthusiasm to complete each piece with perfect artistry. I put particular emphasis on finding the right combination of color and cut of a gemstone to complement the jewelry piece’s design. My strong skills in fine arts, deep understanding of gemstones, and eye for design have allowed me to build a jewelry brand that celebrates the uniqueness of each colored gemstone and each customer.

Customer satisfaction is my top priority. I strive to provide the best products and bring the utmost happiness to my valued customers with the standard of Gems Excellence -Excellent Stones make Excellent Jewelry.
