ALL TRACEABLE, ETHICAL, NATURAL, GENUINE GEMSTONES, SOURCED DIRECTLY FROM SMALL SCALE ARTISANAL MINERS AT SOURCE.
UK Based, 4th Generation Fine Gemstone Dealers.
We are a UK based company with an East African background, and Four Generations of knowledge and experience in the Gemstone Industry.
We buy the best, first-hand selected Gemstones Directly from Miners at Source in the East African region, and sell to an International market with a range of buyers; from Gem Traders to Individual collectors.
We work to high ethical standards and have a fantastic reputation locally and internationally with our miners and buyers. We are known for the quality of our gemstones. We have an extensive mining network with people we have known and done business with for decades. We believe in cultivating long-term supply relationships with miners and buyers based on trust and respect, and we know most miners and their communities personally, fluently being able to communicate in local languages.
As a result, we see material first-hand, sometimes within hours of it being mined, holding the status with miners for buying only the best of the best, top grade stones from the lots that they bring in. In this way, we are able to break market prices and supply hand-selected Natural, Genuine gemstones directly to you from source, at Mine-Direct Prices.
Initially, we started our Gemstones trade as wholesalers, but as our network grew, so did interest in our stones from private collectors, jewellers, designers and the like. We began our online Gemstone trade in 2002 (under Gems of East Africa) and are specialized in the supply of fine-cut gemstones and top facet-rough gemstones. We are also members of the National Association of Jewellers in the UK.
Most of all, we would like you to enjoy trading with us, enjoy the gems we supply, and enjoy the whole experience of acquiring your gemstones from us. From when you first see the gemstone on our site, to when you receive it and are admiring it in your hands.
