Traveling the World
While working as an engineering officer aboard merchant ships, I lived the life many people dream of: I freely traveled the world to over 46 countries. It was an amazingly interesting life in which I loved exploring new places. The Sites, the smells, the culture, the music, the people! But what I found in exotic ports fascinated me more than the work. In these ports I came across the classic treasures of exotic gemstones and precious metals. The year was 1983. The place, Colombo Sri Lanka.
Soon my travels exposed me to opportunities to buy gold, silver and gems at every port. This passion consumed me. I traveled to Thailand, Pakistan and Afghanistan, trading silver jewelry for emeralds and Rubies. I bought more gems and jewels then returned to the United States and began to sell jewelry store door to store door. With an insatiable drive to deepen my understanding of gemstones and jewelry, I enrolled in a gemology school in Bangkok, Thailand. I expanded my education, receiving gemologist certifications in Belgium, Great Britain and the United States.
My Dream Comes to Life
Finally, in 1991 I realized my dream. I opened a manufacturing plant in Thailand. In that factory we only used the finest .925 sterling silver, carefully chose the finest gemstones and hand polished each creation. Not ever making a piece of Jewelry in my life this was for sure a new great experience. Before long we started selling quality jewelry worldwide on 5 continents as the Peter Stone Company. Retailers and wholesalers worldwide began to notice. As this dream became reality, my vision grew, and so did my company. Today we are one of the world’s leading suppliers of esoteric, Celtic, nautical and sea life jewelry and our diverse sterling silver and gold jewelry lines are popular among the Celtic, New Age, Wiccan, Christian, diving, sailing, recovery and pride communities.
Maintaining High Standards of Quality
Today I personally oversee our detail in production to ensure the highest quality results. I have trained my staff daily for the first 4 years how to select and purchase the gems for our various designs. Our artisans continue to hand-polish each piece as a work of art. This direct oversight and attention to quality ensures that the company I founded over 25 years ago continues to exceed our customers’ expectations.
Peter Stone Company’s passion is jewelry. However we’re committed to giving back to our communities. We value our customers and clients, our workers, our artists and the environment in which we live and thrive. Please read our posts on our fair trade practices and environmental commitment.
