What was the first piece of jewelry you ever received or purchased for yourself?
The first piece of jewelry that I purchased was a beautiful BVLGARI ring called the Parentesi with white gold big pave’ diamonds. This had a significant meaning because I had accomplished enough in my career to be able to buy it for myself.
Tell us two of your qualities that make you a gem.
I have a kind heart which is something that I was always known for in my family growing up. I possess a great deal of loyalty toward family, friends and those who have been as equally loyal to me.
Rubies, sapphires, or emeralds? And Why?
I have to say Emeralds, since it is my birth stone. Also because I have always found Emeralds to be mesmerizing & mysterious.
Share with us your pearls of wisdom.
Nothing lasts forever in this life, you come empty handed and you will leave empty handed, so it is best while we are here to capture other human being’s hearts. I have also grown to become a patient person because things come in their own time.
If you could click your ruby slippers together and transport to a vacation somewhere, where would it be?
I would close my eyes gently and click my ruby slippers together and fly to Paris since it’s a place that represents love & romance. Also, because I have always felt a special familiarity toward Paris, as if I have lived there in a past life.
