About


Paul Dragone

Paul Dragone is a Graduate Gemologist from GIA. Under his guidance, Boston Gems currently carries a wide selection of white and fancy colored diamonds, making them a one stop shop for your diamond and colored gem needs.

Paul’s passion for jewelry making began when he was a young child. His mother planned special Saturday outings - shopping, lunch, followed by a mandatory visit to the local jeweler who worked his magic with torch and tools behind a glass window. When he was seventeen Paul bought a ring for a girlfriend from a local jewelry store and was so enthusiastic that the merchant offered him a job. Paul immersed himself in every aspect of running the independent jewelry business from manufacturing to diamond grading. He continued his diamond education by overseeing all diamond and colored stone buying for the largest jewelry manufacturer in the country. Paul has shared his deep knowledge of diamonds and colored stones with Boston Gems for over a decade. What makes Paul a perfect fit at Boston Gems is his commitment to educating and sharing with clients, “I love customers who ask questions.”

When asked what his favorite stone is, not surprisingly he answers, “the diamond.”


Patty Wu

When growing up in rural China, Patty Wu assisted her father in earning extra income by excavating uncut moonstones from a local mountain. She would then wash the gems so they could be sold to dealers for ten cents a pound. You can imagine her father’s delight walking into Boston Gems half a world away and half a lifetime later to find the now rare, rough moonstones (as well as beautifully cut and polished ones), similar to those he had unearthed with his own hands.

One of the country’s leading gem sorters, Patty’s professional experience began seventeen years ago when she entered the jewelry industry sorting and matching diamonds for the largest jewelry manufacturing company in the country. Over the past ten years she has shared her excellent eye and extensive expertise with the Boston Gems team and clients.

Even though Patty has a long history with moonstone and diamond, her favorite gemstones are blue sapphires.
