Jewelry Crossings Company Information
For over twenty-six years I have been involved in the gemstone and jewelry trade-first as the owner of an incorporated company in Singapore, then in Thailand, and for the last fourteen years in Northern California. Throughout my career my reward has always come from the knowledge that I have gone the extra steps to ensure my customers' absolute satisfaction.
Many trips to Brazil to visit mining operationsamethyst, aquamarine, imperial topaz, emerald and morein the Brazilian states of Bahia and Mines Gerais followed during those years. With the family transfer to Bangkok in 1989 Susi was able to expand her knowledge of sapphires and rubies with easy access to the corundum trade and added Thai goldsmiths and silversmiths to her many contacts.

Our company has its earliest beginnings as far back as 1970 when Susis husband, Harry, was studying mineralogy and geology at the University of Alaska and transferred his enthusiasm for mineralogy and gemology to his wife.
Fast forward... to 1981 and Susi makes a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil from her expatriate homeland of Singapore to see friend Jill Lavin. Jill has been studying gemology there and is in the throes of setting up her own gemstone company. An idea hatches to bring fine Brazilian gemstones to Singapore where a flourishing jewelry trade already exists. Thus, in 1981, Susi incorporates Pedras Gemstones of Singapore. From 1981 until Susi's departure to Bangkok with family in 1989, Pedras focuses on providing a huge assortment of colored gemstones to its clientele.

Since moving to Northern California in 1992 after 18 years abroad, Susis company SCV Designs has been broadly partnering PJ Lavin. Susi and Jill have done private showings of their jewelry lines all over Asia, in Jills native England, and to venues in the U.S. too numerous to mention.
Now Jewelry Crossings brings Susis many diverse jewelry contacts from around the world together at one marketplace, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Its been quite a journey of discovery for Susi and she hopes you will now join her here at Jewelry Crossings and discover it all yourself!
