Back when Simone first started Simone Jewels, her vision was to create one-of-a-kind pieces using the highest quality gemstones. Working with a ‘shoe-string budget’ initially, Simone Jewels today invites comparison with Van Cleef & Arpels for its wearable coloured gemstones which are coveted for their investment potential.
She is now ready to take Simone Jewels to the next level with overseas expansion and building a design team in mind. Entry into the US, Hong Kong and Malaysia is the start of her internationalisation plan.
