ABOUT ShangrilaGems EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIP We are Corporate Members of the GEMMOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION OF GREAT BRITAIN and both the owners of ShangrilaGems hold an MSc. KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE ShangrilaGems are an Anglo Indian company with many years experience in the gemstone industry. Through our network of contacts we are able to source rare and interesting items. We also gain advanced insight of new gemstone treatments that are coming on to the market so we are knowledgeable when gemstones are presented to us. It is crucial for us to keep our knowledge current to accurately represent our items. New gemstone treatments are invented all the time! MANUFACTURING AND SHORT ROUTE TO MARKET We own a manufacturing outlet in Jaipur, India where we cut many of our stones – so the route to market is short and our stones are not only great quality but great value.
