About Us


From the Australian outback mining town of Lightning Ridge, to the ruby markets of Myanmar, to the remote jungles of Cambodia, you never know where you might find Wayne Roland Brown.  But you can bet he is living and breathing the gemstone business. 

Wayne’s custom jewelry is featured in the collections of aficionados and celebrities around the globe. His work showcases the finest gemstones in gold and platinum mountings, forged with exquisite craftsmanship, bold shapes, and innovative designs. Each unique piece has its own rich story to tell.

Driven by an adventurous and courageous spirit, Wayne travels to some of the most dangerous areas of the world to dig up the finest gemstones, and to ensure the jewels he provides his customers are of the highest quality. He oversees the entire process—literally from the ground up—from mining to cutting, polishing, and identifying the perfect stones for each design.

The result is a collection of truly exceptional pieces that have earned Gondwanaland Gems its celebrated reputation.
