Designing beautiful jewelry is an inherent passion for twin sisters Kimberly and Lucy. As an expression of their shared vision for creating rare pieces of art, the sisters launched the brand Dao Fournier (pronounced: Dow Forn-Yay). The brand is a fusion of the sisters' middle names and pays homage to their Thai and French Canadian lineage. The Dao Fournier brand is a collaboration of the sisters' love and appreciation for jewelry and represents the beauty and richness of East meets West.
Born in Thailand and raised in the United States, Kimberly and Lucy's earliest memories include playing with diamonds and precious gemstones in their parent's jewelry boutique. In 2006, they reconnected with their roots and returned to Thailand to study Gemology at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). While at GIA, the sisters experienced sapphire mining, diamond cutting, and colored stone buying while enhancing their jewelry design skills. After graduating from GIA, Kimberly and Lucy spent the next four years designing their debut collection Dao Fournier, which launched in late 2012.
