Iva—I am a television host and Igor is a scientist and a hot air balloon pilot. We love traveling, and the special little things in life, like having friends over for dinner or a bottle of good wine. And yes, we’re suckers for adventure!
Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship…
Josh is a doctor, Courtney is a pharmacist, we met while we were studying in Otago as neighbours on Castle Street – which is unique in itself. We love that we have practically grown up together as adults, we share lots of memories together of important milestones in both of our lives.
Tell us a little about your business, Diamonds On Richmond… We founded Diamonds On Richmond in 2008. Many years prior to this, I was gifted a diamond from my grandmother. Fascinated by this diamond being over 100 years old, I embarked on months of research and quickly realised that there are so many facets to diamonds and no two diamonds are the same. Realising there was a gap in the market for the type of service we wanted to provide, my brother Michael and I started business planning. Once all of our t’s were crossed and i’s dotted, Diamonds on Richmond was born.
