My love for gemstones and jewellery runs in the family.
Dolph Bodes' father came home with the most beautiful jewels and jewellery on a weekly basis that were to be sold in their own jewellery store, so it was no surprise that Dolph Bode's love and fascination for gemstones runs in his blood. After studying in the Netherlands, he left for California to study Gemology at the renowned Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Dolph Bode can now officially call himself a graduate gemologist and after having worked in the United States for a while, he returned to the Netherlands to work in the family business. As a consequence, he is often found at fairs in Italy and Asia, where he expands his network and stays informed about the latest developments. Gemstones keep inspiring and fascinating Dolph Bode because he keeps seeing new things in them. Each stone is different and the jewellery which complements it keeps surprising him. In his opinion that is what makes his work so interesting. Each week uses his gemological knowledge and experience to assess the latest submissions. He tries to make sure that all of the most interesting pieces are photographed especially well by the sellers, so everyone can enjoy these tiny works of art.
