Brand’s History

Diana Atieno- CEO and Founder of Porini Gems decides to drop it all and go on a quest into the gem world. Initially calling the company Asscher Limited, after a company that long inspired her Royal Asscher. ‘Little did I know that I would go global. My thought was it would be just a small company operating out of Nairobi in Kenya’ says Diana

Diana decides to go international by attending gem shows around the world. This makes her reconsider changing the name to avoid conflict with the well known company. She chooses to re register the company officially calling it Porini Gems ‘I was working from the mines a lot,my favourite place to be in the entire industry. And each time we are out there we say in Swahili tuko Porini. Meaning we are in the jungle. So I chose to call the company Porini Gems loosely translated as Jungle Gems’ The name was unique and authentic and so we became Porini Gems

In 2015 we begin our first exhibitions in the United states. Exhibiting in Las Vegas and Tucson. Our movements go further into Europe, the middle East and Asia. Attending different shows and delivering to different clients around the world. Creating a name for ourselves

We hold a major miners forum in Voi with local miners to discuss ways in which we can make mining better, we also hold a conference in Nairobi termed the gem affair.These were our small ways in which we can improve the industry locally from mine to market
