Celebrating Mogok: 20 years of Gem memories

Burma is a legendary source of the finest precious stones in history.

No wonder every gem lover dreams to visit the very capital of Burmese Rubies and Jade: Mogok. However this little ancient village is almost permanently closed for foreign visitors, and it is a great deal of challenge and good luck to get there. 

In 1999 Vlad Yavorskyy came to Mogok for the first time.
2019, twenty years later, sounds like a proper anniversary. To celebrate this two-decade Gem romance, we made a series of films dedicated to Burma. You must have seen the first teaser already, as well as the breathtaking drone flights over Mogok, like nobody had shot before.

The Burma Gems Book is an illustrious proof of Vlad Yavorskyy’s love and devotion to the land of sparkling red stones. Our new short film reveals how a book can connect people in time and space. Only two minutes and you immerse in the cinematic magic, witnessing unique archive recordings from 1999.


And not only that: you’re welcome to read a colorful review of Burma Gems Book in the latest issue of InColor magazine. We’re grateful to the authors for extending our passion and mission to the larger audience. After all, there never can be too much poetry about the most significant treasure chest in the history of precious Gems.
