Over the last 15 years we have built up strong relationships with other Gem Dealers in the major cutting centres of the Gem world Industry, that is, India and Thailand, and with miners in Brazil and Peru, most are second generation highly experienced Gem Dealers.

We now source with our contacts, we give the exact descriptions on gems we are after and ask to source when gems come through their factories. They understand the rarity of top quality gems for good value and we have set orders for very particular gems.

It takes on average over a month to source a good gem that is certified, so it is a very long and slow process, as it is not easy to find clean gem stones in most parcels. We do not buy parcel lots for good gems, we have a high criteria to select the best gems.

Sometimes the gem merchant will see thousands of stones and pick out 10-12 in a month for us as they also understand that our buyers require exquisite quality gems at realistic fair value that is not retail price.

Our advantage is that we personally know our suppliers and they in turn know the exact mine and location that the gem came from and in some instances they know the depth that the gem was mined at. This insider information is what gives us a huge advantage to source valuable gemstones and to give our valued buyers full confidence in our gemstones.
