As most of you know, I'm now semi-"retired"!
I resigned from the Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS) in early 2007 to concentrate on taking care of my family. Later that year, due to my husband's work commitment, we left Bangkok to move back to Singapore. I am now a full-time mommy to a 4 year old boy and an infant girl.
Most days, my life revolves around mundane activities like housework, laundry, groceries, ferrying my son to and fro his daily activities etc. But on a few special days, I still revel in the magic of gemstones! So yes, I still make time to buy and sell fine colored stones and jades for exclusive clients. And I still welcome former-students and friends with their collections and questions to my apartment. Thank you for keeping me sane! I also try to keep the small shop section of this website updated whenever something of interest arrives in my collection. (Check out my new jades for sale!)
For those of you who don't know me, pop by my about leach section. For those of you who are new to gemstones, check out my advice on Buying & Collecting Gemstones and Gemstone Grading & Appraisal. I also have a section on FAQs featuring my answers to questions like "Gemstone prices: Is there a website or source that can tell me how much gemstones cost?", "How can I tell good quality jade from bad quality Jade?" and "Are Sapphires rarer than Diamonds?" etc
As always, feel free to email me at leach at leachdesigns dot com with your questions and requests.
