Paloma Sanchez biography
Paloma Sanchez is a GIA Gemologist and Jewelry Designer who looks for specimen-quality and exquisite stones all over the world. She never expects to find the same stone twice. And she never will create the same piece. Each is as one of a kind as was its journey into a unique stone.
Paloma likewise have a profound love and respect for her father, and that is why her personal journey began with law school. Paloma had passed both Spanish and French university entry exams in her hometown of Madrid, Spain, and to meet her father’s expectations, Paloma earned a law degree. Only then did her father permit Paloma to resume her journey toward creating jewelry from precious stones.
Paloma went on to earn her degree as a Graduate Gemologist and Jewelry Designer from the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America, in Los Angeles, California. In the following years, Paloma immersed herself in both retail and the business of global luxury brands, including Carrera y Carrera, Hublot, Cuervo&Sobrinos, and Patek Philippe.
Paloma在加州洛杉矶世界知名的美国宝石学院获得了宝石学家的学位。在之后的几年中，她投身于多个世界奢侈品包括零售和商业发展领域的工作，她服务过的品牌有Carrera y Carrera, Hublot, Cuervo&Sobrinos和Patek Philippe。
Now in Beijing since 2006, Paloma Sanchez is devoted full-time to searching for the loveliest stones from around the world, and then honoring their uniqueness with exquisite design.
Paloma’s travels for unique stones have taken her to the mines of Montana and Arizona in the U.S., to Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Morocco, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Dominican Republic and Madagascar. Sometimes their natural rough form is breathtaking enough to showcase with little interpretation, while others can be polished to reveal their fierce inner lights. It is this inner brilliance that Paloma loves to capture in her jewelry.
“It delights me to see women of individual character wear my unique creations. My personal view is that jewelry should be as precious and as one-of-a-kind as they are.” Paloma says.
In 2013, Paloma Sanchez was recognised as one of the thirty best jewelry designers in the world today and featured in the “Unique Book, The Best Jewelry Designers” launched at the Baselworld 2013, World Watch and Jewelry Show, in Basel, Switzerland.
