Want to Shop More Sustainably? myGemma Needs to Be On Your Radar

Shopping sustainably has become a big goal of ours in the last few years.

And one of our absolute favorite ways to do that is by buying vintage, pre-loved designer pieces. With so many incredible sites offering those sorts of services these days, it's hard to tell which ones are actually good. And after having a chat with Andrew Brown, CEO of myGemma, we think we've hit the jackpot! Continue below for our full interview with Andrew, where he tells us all about his designer resale site, myGemma.

Sweety High: Tell us about yourself!

Andrew Brown: My name is Andrew Brown, and I am the CEO of myGemma and WP Diamonds. My background is in finance, but I started working in the diamond industry in 2010 and moved to the luxury resale space in 2012.
