Meet Founder, Kimberly Keighley
Kimberly is a fellow alumni of the University of Texas at Austin where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in 2002. While at UT, Kimberly interned for Saks 5th Avenue in NYC as an Assistant Buyer in their jewelry department. This is where Kimberly’s love and passion for high-end gems and jewelry began. She further expanded her jewelry career when she earned her Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in 2003, the world’s foremost authority in gemology, diamond grading, and jewelry education.
While working in NYC and the Diamond District, she developed long lasting relationships with global suppliers. Kimberly also got to work along side her family, who have been in the industry for 30+ years, and are some of the best jewelers, appraisers, and gemologists.
Kimberly moved back to Texas to marry her high school sweetheart and became a Buyer at a wholesale diamond company. She would later expand her career and work as the in-house Appraiser for Houston’s largest independent jeweler before moving back to Austin.
