Being the third generation of successful wholesale diamond supplier, Celsteel, Danielle Chib grew up knowing diamond’s are a girl’s best friend, and as such, she treats them and her work with extra care.
In the industry Chib is renowned for her attention to detail, enthusiasm for meeting clients’ needs, and always going the extra mile to help.
Chib is always up for a challenge, and will do whatever she can to meet unusual requests.
Outside of the office she is a champion and a voice for the next generation of industry professionals.
Chib has a passion for connecting the trade and breaking down some of the ‘closed door’ mentality that some gem suppliers have taken in the past. In particular she goes out of her way to work with new, younger talents joining the trade, supporting them in the early stages of their businesses.
Not one to let her passion and influence go to waste, Chib has been instrumental in founding the NAJ’s steering group for millennials ‘G.E.M.S’, which has engaged hundreds of young industry professionals, and she is also the vice-chair of the Association’s new consumer focus group.
More recently, Chib joined a panel discussion on ‘women in jewellery’, where topics discussed included gender, innovation and craft in the changing jewellery industry.
Chib is one of the stand out millennials in the trade, and deserves to be recognised for her passion and commitment to improve the industry.
