Hidden human stories from Africa

In the last 100 years, the discovery of gemstones across the African continent have changed the course of the coloured gemstone industry. For the past two years, journalist and storyteller, Richa Goyal Sikri has been interviewing known and unknown figures in the industry and writing adventure stories based on their experiences and actual events.

The objective? To document moments from the industry’s Africa related history that have remained hidden within personal stories, and to create a collection of stories that would educate while entertaining.

Join us for a very special session with RICHA who will be speaking for the first time about this project, sharing the story behind the book, and provide the audience with an exclusive teaser of this yet to be released publication, only at GemGenève.
