PL Gems' story began in Pailin, Cambodia about 40 years ago where Pengsiv and Pang used their newlywed's savings to buy ruby and sapphire mines. Their work ethics, good-hearted nature, and trustworthiness brought them priceless knowledge about gemstones as well as respect and admiration in Pailin's community.
In 1975, the communist Khmer Rouge took control of Cambodia, demanded the couple to abandon their business, and forced them to perform menial labor with little food for four grueling years.
In time, by offering excellent selection, service, and value, the couple has transformed their humble business to what it is today: The largest selection of gems in California. A vast majority of their business comes from repeat customers-- jewelry professionals from all over the country.
