First of all...
My name is Patrick Voillot and I am a gemologist. My passion for gemstones and minerals, since the age of 7, drives me to travel the world looking for the most beautiful gems and all the tales linked to them.
It is at the bend of the highest mountains, the densest tropical forests and other fascinating scenery that I met the men who extract gems from Earth, who sell, cut and mount them in jewelry .
They are miners or Maharadjah, statesmen or highwaymen, or simply dealers.
This is my life
