Our Grading System On Facet Rough: 

We grade Facet Rough using the ‘VVS System’ and we were one of the first, 20 years ago, to start grading Colored Gem Rough in this way. We found this to be the most logical (and transparent) way of describing rough, rather than just saying ‘clean’. Most just use the ‘Eye Clean Method’ or ‘% Clean Method’ which is too vague. For example, Eye Clean in our view is SI-VS or lower. Putting a value on facet rough such as ‘VS’ or ‘VVS’ is more exact and we felt this system was fair to us and for our clients. Since all the stones we buy are mostly to cut ourselves, we thought, why not grade Facet Rough to finished result?


VVS-IF will cut a VVS-IF cut stone,

VS will cut a VS finished stone,

SI will cut an SI stone, and so on

We don't use terms like 'clean' as it is too vague or 'flawless' as a stone will ALWAYS have something in it even at x100!! We primarily buy rough from miners to cut ourselves but had a great deal of clients wanting to cut themselves, so now we offer out the rough first.

All prices are MINE DIRECT PRICES and equivalent to buying them directly from source. We select the best from miner lots and save you the time and money and effort.

We are 4th Generation Gem Dealers. We have been offering out fine facet rough out to the faceting community and gem dealers around the world for 2 decades now.

Our stones move fast, stocks keep on changing continuously. If there is anything you like, please take it immediately! All stones are unique, individual and good investments, as no two stones can ever be the same, so when its gone, its gone. 

Good Stones, bought at Good Prices, Natural, Genuine, are good investments as supplies from mines are dwindling and mining is becoming more expensive. We see price increases almost every month, those in the gem trade know this very well. This seems to be the trend in the last 25 years.

We try as much as possible to keep our prices rock bottom so they work as investments and for re-sale. 

If you have any questions do feel free to ask us!  We are always available.
