One of our highlight events is the Gem Rendezvous session that happens bi-monthly. Gem Rendezvous serves to bring together like-minded gem lovers (minerals included!) to come and share about their passion and experiences. We have a main speaker for every rendezvous session to speak for about 20 minutes, followed by question & answers. The rest of the session shall be a time of networking.

In our May 2018 session, our main speaker was Ms. Brenda Kang, founder of Revival Vintage Jewels. Before Ms Kang founded her business, she was a jewellery specialist with Christie’s for 15 years. handling and appraising mostly vintage pieces. Under Christie’s Ms. Kang accumulated an impressive portfolio, having worked on high profile collections and auctions such as the estates of Teresa Po LauBaron & Baroness di PortanovaDoris DukeHarry WinstonVan Cleef & Arpels and Elizabeth Taylor auctions. Ms. Kang spoke on the topic of “Investing in Vintage Jewellery”. 

Our second speaker Ms. Cathy Que, was an avid independent collector and a student from Far East Gem Institute, currently taking the Advanced Certificate in Gemmology (Diploma). Ms. Que shared with us her research papers on “Differentiating Spinels from Myanmar and Tanzania”.

We believe that since great minds think alike, amazing experiences must be shared. We want to create a platform where passion is ignited, meaningful relationships are built, and valuable knowledge is acquired.
