THE HEART OF PRINS AND PRINS
Meet Riana Courtis
Riana joined Prins & Prins Diamonds in 1989 as a receptionist/secretary. But these days she’s the main buyer for, and general manager of Prins & Prins Diamonds.
Her journey unfolded when she enrolled with the Gemmological Institute of America and completed her studies qualifying as a Graduate Gemmologist.
She gained valuable experience in New York, coloured stone grading in Mumbai, India (she also visited Jaipur, the “home of coloured gems”) and passed her final gemstone Identification exam in London.
She attends numerous trade shows, both locally and abroad, to keep abreast with international jewellery trends, such as Vicenza (Italy) and Basel (Switzerland). She also represented Prins & Prins Diamonds in Beijing, China, at an all African trade show, to strengthen business ties between Chinese tour operators and Prins & Prins.
To achieve your goals and dreams, you need a vision, focus and persistence, and this lady is leading the way.
